    Get a Free Month of Origin Access Courtesy of EA

    Secure your account to get a free month of Origin Access.

    EA wants you to secure your accounts. To help incentivize you into being secure, they will give you a free month of Origin Access once you enable two-factor authentication.

    EA's take on two-factor authentication is simply called login veri...

    The Iron Judgment expansion for GWENT: The Witcher Card Game is now live on most platforms. Those platforms being the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. This expansion adds in over 80 new cards across all playable factions.
