If you’ve been playing on PC for the last couple of years, you might be aware of how Electronic Arts’ games are exclusive to their launcher, Origin. That will no longer be the case anymore, as EA and Valve are teaming up to see the former’s game titles return to Steam. Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order will be the first EA game to kick off the partnership, with a scheduled Steam release of November 15th. More games are slated to follow, with The Sims 4 and Unravel 2 launching soon on the platform as well. FIFA 20, Battlefield V, and Apex Legends will also follow, in 2020. Games with online features will offer crossplay, allowing Origin and Steam users to play together.

That’s not all, though, as even EA’s subscription service, EA Access will be launching on Steam this spring, giving players access to a library of EA titles for a monthly fee. Gabe Newell stated that, “this is a good day for gamers. We’re excited to partner with EA to bring their great games and subscription service to Steam, but also open up our communities to each other in an unprecedented way that will benefit players around the world”.

Huh. Pulling a UPlay, it seems, but I may need to just snag a new Origin account because last I checked, there was a hacker assault on Origin several years back, and I fear that my account was hacked. Haven't bothered assuring full control over my account ever since since I only got Origin for one game. However, there is one other game I want that's 100% exclusive to Origin, but I do hope they release said game on Steam as well.

Star Wars costs the equivalent of $77 for us Britchads. That's a huge NOPE from me and I hope others too. It's unacceptable

    with current sale I can get a bundle with forza horizon (not my cup of tea) for 440€
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Honestly not much difference in the s or x besides saving half the cost
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    I would take the forza code tho :tpi:
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Or if you're anti digital then fair is fair
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    I prefer physical, but it's a game I don't really care for so digital is fine.
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    Although in most systems these days physical is pretty shitty since it requires installation.
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Series s can still do 1440p fine I just can't argue spending double over a few extra games you'll hardly notice
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Fps in games anyway
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    I like physical
