EA Games Are Coming Back to Steam Including The Sims, Apex Legends, And Jedi Fallen Order
Electronic Arts have lately done their own thing when it comes to the PC, the publisher listing nearly all of their biggest releases on the platform through the EA Origin launcher. This has included the likes of subscription service EA/Origin Access, which offers a number of the company’s most prominent games for a monthly fee. However, it appears this PC exclusivity is officially ending with the announcement that EA Access games are now coming to rival storefront Steam.
As confirmed by Prima Games, EA has announced a partnership with Steam, joining the likes of Xbox and PlayStation in bringing EA Access titles to the digital platform. “Starting next spring, EA Access—our ever-growing subscription service powered by great games and member benefits—will be making its way to Steam,” read EA’s official statement. “EA Access is the first and only gaming subscription service available on Steam, and the fourth platform featuring an EA subscription.”
Having teased the momentous partnership in the last few days, EA confirms that several notable games will start rolling out to Steam as early as next month–starting with the launch of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. “In the coming months, players on Steam will also be able to play other major titles like The Sims 4 and Unravel Two,” the announcement revealed. “Multiplayer games—like Apex Legends, FIFA 20, and Battlefield V—will become available next year, and players on both Origin and Steam will have the ability to play together.”
“A library of titles awaits you in The Vault, but beyond the games themselves, EA Access enhances your gaming experience with a medley of rewards,” the statement continued. “Get the red-carpet treatment with exclusive catalog-wide discounts, and in-game member benefits for some of our biggest franchises.” Electronic Arts concluded the announcement with a tease of “more news and updates on this partnership in the coming weeks and months!”
