Exclamation EA Origin customers - Info about Origin Access Premiere availability of OOTP 20

Update The game is now live on Origin Access Premiere.

Initially we thought that OOTP 20 would be available for Origin's Access Premiere subscribers on launch day, March 22. However, we were just notified by EA that this is NOT the case because of some uncertainties for some age ratings. Instead, it is scheduled to launch on Origin Access Premiere on April 9.

You can still purchase the game on March 22 via Origin, though.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience!

Markus

Uncertainties for age ratings? I thought the topless models weren't going to be in the game for another 10 years in OOTP XXX?

It's probably because of perfect team and the 'gambly' nature of it.

Not at all. PT has nothing to do with gambling. Had to do with PEGI and ESRB. This is standard stuff, but ESRB changed their procedure and apparently things took longer and hence EA pushed the release back for Access, to be on the safe side. I do not know all the details though, I was just made aware of that decision.

We just learned about it today. And you can still pre-oder today or buy for the same discount during launch week!

Brilliant strategy. I was going to wait for the Origin release, now I just bought the game outright on eSellerate.

Hahaha! Thank you But really, we did not know of EAs decision regarding this until yesterday, and I was quite angry at them to be honest. I hate communicating one thing publicly and then having to change that.

Bummer. I signed up for Premiere yesterday. Probably wouldn't have if I'd seen this first. My experience with Origin so far has not be good (couple hours with tech support because the client wouldn't start).

Anyway, what about the gold pack for perfect team? Are we out of luck unless we get the game via another channel?

IIRC the game was included with Origin Basic last year. It's part of Premiere now?
