FIFA 21 Origin Access

ORIGIN ACCESS

The Origin Access is a paid subscription program, released in January 2016 exclusively for PC gamers.

ORIGIN ACCESS OFFERS FOR FIFA 21

Origin Access subscribers have access to three exclusive offers
Origin Access subscribers can download and play a selection of EA games, including FIFA 21, before they’re released. No purchase necessary.
With Origin Access, subscribers earn early access to all recent and upcoming EA games, including FIFA, Madden, Need for Speed and Battlefield series.
Subscribers can download and play a selection of games before they hit the stores.

Basic membership gives access to Play First Trials, which are complete versions of popular games playable for a limited time. In the case of FIFA 21, it includes online and FIFA Ultimate Team features, but there is a limitation of 10 hours. During this time, it is possible to play, trade, sell, buy items and FIFA Points, which can be a huge advantage over the other players without early access. The trial timer will continue to count down even when the game is running in the background, so players should make sure to quit the trial completely when they aren’t playing.

On the other hand, Premier membership gives full access to games as long as the subscription is active, without any time restriction.
With Origin Access trials, players are playing the real game for a limited time before its release date. If they purchase FIFA 21 once it releases, they can pick up right where they left off – their progress and stats carry over. Saved games and achievements/trophies earned during the Early Access will unlock once they purchase and log into the Origin Servers with the final version of the game.

For Premier members, it doesn’t make sense to talk about progress, since they are already playing the final version.
FIFA 21 Origin Access early access is estimated to start on October 1, 2020, at around 4pm UK time.
The windows pre-load should start on September 25 at 6pm.

In order to play the early access, subscribers just need to download the game through the service’s dashboard once it becomes available.

In the following table, you can see the early access dates from previous years.

Origin Access holders have free instant access, at any time and as long as they keep being subscribers of the service, to a selection of games ‘The Vault’.
The Vault is an evolving collection of PC games included in Origin Access membership. It features the latest EA games, as well as third party games, DLCs and expansion packs. The catalogue for the Premier plan is much larger and includes unlimited access to all EA games since its early release or release date.

The list of games available for Basic Vault and Premier Vault can be checked in this page.
For Play First Trials, members need an Internet connection. They can play some Vault games offline, but they’ll need to periodically reconnect to Origin to verify that they’re still members.

Not all Vault games and Play First Trials can be played on a Mac.

With Origin Access, subscribers have unlimited access to an instant collection of great PC titles, without any other type of restrictions. They are free to play them as much time as they want, at any time.
The Vault is a growing collection of full Origin’s best games for PC that players can download and play with an active Origin Access membership. More games are added over time, so players always have something new to play.

For Premier Plan members, FIFA 21 is always available to play since its early access.

For Basic Plan members, FIFA 21 is estimated to be added to The Vault, which can be accessed via Origin Access dashboard, in July 2020.
Origin Access subscribers pay 10% less when buying digital purchases via Origin dashboard, including FIFA Points and the full FIFA 21 game.
Origin Access subscribers get 10% off on any Origin digital content, including full games, season passes, DLC, sales and promotions.

Basic and Premier Members have a discount of 10% when buying FIFA 21 and FIFA Points.
