Orwell Leaving Origin Access on April 19th

★★★ Newbie

I saw this announcement and had a couple questions even after reading the details a couple times.

  1. Does this affect both Orwell games? (The second one customizes something if you've played through the first one, so I'm not sure how it'd work to only disable the first one.)
  2. What happens if I've already downloaded the game? Can I continue to play it?

Hey @Kiirla it is only Orwell that is leaving the Vault on the 19. Orwell: Ignorance is Strength will, as far as I am aware, still be available to play.

 

Once the game is removed from the vault you will no longer be able to play it through your Origin Access Membership.

Wasn't there a whole thing promised that no game would ever be removed? That's what I pay for.

I am not aware of any statements that no game would ever be removed @KageSong. From time to time for reasons outside of our control a title may no longer be available through the Origin Access Vault. Orwell is a third party and as such, I do not have any further information as to why it is being removed.

Yeah, It's been said. A few times.

Those articles refer to EA Access @KageSong which is not the same thing as Origin Access.
