EA didn't reveal what players will be able try in Battlefront II, how long they'll be able to play for or when they'll be able to play it, only saying (obviously) that they'll be able to begin playing "before launch day".
There's no dates available for when you can expect to get your hands on these games just yet, but hopefully it's soon, given that we're rapidly nearing the end of October.
Mass Effect: Andromeda isn't the only new addition headed for Origin Access. Top of the pile is Star Wars: Battlefront 2, followed by a 10-hour pre-launch Play First Trial of Need for Speed: Payback. You'll be able to do all of this - as well as play every other game now available to Access members - as long as you're spending the $5 a month. The game now costs $40 from Microsoft if you are not an EA or Origin Access member.
'Shine a Light' on domestic violence
Alpha Chi Omega's website explains that the sorority has held domestic violence awareness as their philanthropy for 25 years.
As well as Mass Effect: Andromeda, the Origin highlights are an early "Play First" trial for Battlefront 2 and a similar thing for Need for Speed: Payback.
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 flawless opportunity to witness the series' disappointing decline, from sterling horror to bland action, first-hand.
Xbox One fans receive the full version of Dead Space 3 along with a trial version of the upcoming console port of The Sims 4. Membership comes in two varieties: $4.99 for one month and $29.99 for a full year.
