EA Launches Service With Unlimited Access To Its PC Games

EA’s Origin Access Premier is rolling out starting today, adding a higher tier to its subscription service. The upgraded version of Origin Access will give you unlimited access to new releases on PC, as well as early access five days before launch.

The basic tier gives access to the Vault of older EA and third-party games along with a 10% discount on purchases. Premier includes all that, along with new games once they launch like FIFA 19, Madden NFL 19, and Battlefield V. When EA teased the announcement, it also promised its big-budget shooter Anthem will be included when it launches next year.

It costs $15 / £15 per month or $100 / £90 per year, as compared to the basic tier’s $5 / £4 and $30 / £20 charges, respectively. Subscribing now gets you in before Madden drops on August 10, and altogether subscribing through the end of the year would get you EA’s entire slate for just over the cost of one game. Of course, if you let the subscription lapse, the games go too.

This makes EA’s own subscription service similar to the Xbox Game Pass, which offers a large backlog of older games along with all new first-party games from Microsoft as they release. That service similarly costs $10 per month.

This is the Police 2 (PC) Review | GamePitt

Rob Pitt writes: This is the Police was a pleasant surprise when it launched back in 2016. It was a game where you managed the cops in your precinct as you dealt with crime, corruption and intrigue all whilst aiming to raise 500k within 180 days as a retirement bonus. Weappy Studios has stepped up their game with This is the Police 2 as we continue the story of Jack Boyd, only within a new town with a few new mechanics thrown in to keep things interesting.

This time around youll be dealing with corruption once again as you aim to stay out of prison and remain hidden from the Feds, a task which is hard to do when youre also in control of the local PD.

Mission Impossible: Fallout Has Series-Best Opening Weekend At US Box Office

Six movie and 22 years in, the Mission Impossible series keeps getting bigger. Mission Impossible: Fallout opened this weekend to huge box office success, giving it the highest opening weekend of the franchise so far, as well as the second-biggest opening of Tom Cruise’s career.

Fallout made an estimated $61.6 million in its first three days in the US, to take the No.1 slot on the box office chart. This beats Mission Impossible 2‘s $57.8 million opening in 2000, and is second only to War of the Worlds‘ 2005 take of $64.8 million in terms of Cruise’s weekend debuts. The last Mission Impossible movie, 2015’s Rogue Nation, took $55.5 million in its first three days.

Fallout‘s success had an inevitable impact on last week’s No.1, the Denzel Washington-starring The Equalizer 2, which is also an action sequel with a popular veteran actor in the lead role. That movie made an estimated $14 million and slipped to third place, while the musical comedy Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again held on at No.2 with an estimated $15 million weekend take.

The week’s only other new release was the animated Teen Titans Go! To the Movies, which debuted at No.5. Box Office Mojo notes that although its $10.5 million take was below expectations, the movie only had a production budget of $10 million.

Elsewhere, Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation dropped one place to No.4 and Marvel’s Ant-man and the Wasp fell to No.6. Two of the year’s biggest movies–Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and Incredibles 2–continue to do solid business in their sixth and seventh weeks on the chart, while the disappointing Dwayne Johnson vehicle Skyscraper fell to No.9 in only its third week on release.

You can see the full Top 10 list for the July 27-29 US box office below, as compiled by Box Office Mojo.
