Play EVE Online for freeIt was touted as the “Million-Dollar Battle” — a million dollars’ worth of EVE Online ships heading to an epic showdown in 9-4RP2. Pandemic Legion was defending its Keepstar in the system while the Imperium attempted to destroy it. With 250 massive titans and a total of 6,000 pilots being brought to bear on both sides, it had the potential of being the largest fight ever in the game’s history.

During EA Play this weekend, EA announced Origin Access Premier, its attempt at a subscription service on PC.

Subscriptions rise again, right? Is this a good thing for games outside the service? “As always, I want to Bree to win the lottery, buy up some MMOs and take them to the Island of Misfit MMOs where $200 per annum gets you sub/pref access to all of RIFT, LOTRO, STO, SWTOR, et al.,” MOP tipster Sally wrote to us, urging us to write about the sub. “But picture that you are a hard-working indie dev. You already have the issues with dealing with Steam. Now a customer has to decide whether to buy your game or just play something like Anthem for no additional cost.” Will you be subbing to EA’s new Origin Access Premier service? Do … [Read more...] about The Daily Grind: Will you sub to EA’s new ‘Origin Access Premier’ service?
