EA's Play subscription service will be available on Steam on August 31st

Gaming subscription services are coming to Steam, starting with EA's Play service, which grants PC gamers access to the "EA Vault", a collection of EA classics, as well as a selection of other perks. 

On August 31st, EA Play, formerly known as EA Access/Origin Access, will be available on Steam, offering PC gamers the same perks as the service's Origin-based equivalent. 

On Steam, EA Play will cost $4.99 per month or $29.99 per year. Like EA's Origin Access (now EA Play) service, Steam's EA Play service will offer subscribers access to a large number of EA's best titles, including games from the Battlefield franchise, the Need for Speed series, Plants vs Zombies, STAR WARS Battlefront and more. Subscribers will also get a 10% discount on EA games/DLC, exclusive in-game items, and access to 10-hour demos for newly-released or upcoming games. 

With this move, EA will expand its Game Pass Service to a wider PC consumer base, taking advantage of Steam's market dominance to expand its subscription revenues. EA already offers EA Access on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and their Origin client, making Steam the next logical place to expand their subscription services into. 

Below is what EA has to say about its EA Play subscription service.
