Mass Effect: Andromeda, Dead Space 3 coming to EA and Origin Access soon

And a little taste of Star Wars: Battlefront 2.

EA has announced a new selection of titles and trials coming to its Origin Access and EA Access on-demand subscription services between now and the end of December, including Mass Effect: Andromeda and Dead Space 3.

Mass Effect: Andromeda, BioWare's much maligned but still surprisingly enjoyable space extravaganza, is the big one on the list, and you'll be able to play it as much as you want if you're subscribed to either Origin Access on PC or EA Access on Xbox One.

Dead Space 3's arrival, meanwhile, is notable largely because it means that the entire Dead Space trilogy is finally available on-demand, giving you the perfect opportunity to witness the series' disappointing decline, from sterling horror to bland action, first-hand.

"For this one, let's pretend we're all in a band".

Additionally, EA has unveiled several new "Play First" promotions, offering the chance to try out a selection of upcoming games prior to release day. Top of the pile is Star Wars: Battlefront 2, followed by a 10-hour pre-launch trial of Need for Speed: Payback.

Both trials will be available to subscribers of Origin Access and EA Access. However, EA's third announced Play First offering - The Sims 4 - is only available on Xbox One, and precedes the game's debut on console.

If any of that leaves your curiosity piqued, you'll find more information over on the official EA Access and Origin Access pages.
