Bioware’s Anthem has already joined EA’s Origin Access subscription service just months after launch.
While the EA subscription service does throw every new release into it’s more expensive Origin Access Premiere service, the pseudo-MMO has now entered the basic tier.
This standard subscription is reserved for most of the company’s back catalog: new games normally make their way over after a considerable amount of time. However, just seven months after release, Anthem has joined the back catalog.
For comparison’s sake, Origin Access is a third cheaper than its premium counterpart. Whilst EA’s older titles can be had for just $4.99/£3.99 a month, newer releases added to the service are $14.99 per month.
After a rocky launch, Anthem was supposed to be heavily reworked and added to in order to create a solid title. One major update, Cataclysm, came and went: no one cared about the new additions.
Instead of making a fantastic turnaround like, say, Star Wars Battlefront 2, Bioware’s game has been chucked into EA’s bargain bin. And you know what? For just $4.99, with a bunch of other games, I’d say it is a bargain.
Origin Access is available on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
