If you woke up this morning and checked the internet you would have seen the news that EA Access, the corporation's subscription service for Xbox One that provides early access to new EA releases and permanent access to older titles, is becoming available for users on PC.
Unfortunately, it's not available in Australia just yet.
EA proudly announced the news this morning via their Twitter:
— Origin (@OriginInsider) January 12, 2016
... and they even signed up Bill Nye to help promote things.
Unfortunately, the one thing EA hasn't done yet is make it available to Australians. The screenshot above is what you get if you navigate to the Origin page, which is a bit of a bummer for Aussies.
It's worth noting that Origin Access isn't tied to EA Access either, for those who have the subscription service on console. Origin Access also isn't available on OSX, according to the official FAQ. "You cannot play games in The Vault or Play First Trials on a Mac," the page says.
I've reached out to EA this morning to confirm when the subscription service, available for US$4.99/month or 3.99 pounds/month overseas, will open up here. It's currently restricted to the US, Canada, Germany and the UK, but new countries will be added "soon" according to official tweets.
