New EA app to replace Origin on Windows PC

Electronic Arts is rolling out its new EA app.

For more than a decade, video game giant Electronic Arts has pushed its own online gaming platform even as PC gamers preferred Steam. However, we have just learned that Origin will expire soon. The new EA app will replace Origin.

“We set out to create EA’s next-generation PC gaming platform – a faster, more reliable, and more streamlined gaming experience – the best possible place for you to experience EA’s amazing games, services and content. ‘EA,” the company said.

The new EA app is officially now in open beta. Electronic Arts claims it is their “fastest and lightest PC client to date”. Features include automatic game downloads and background updates.

Origin players will receive an invitation to upgrade to the new app in the near future. The publisher says the transition should go smoothly: “By the time you receive your invite, all of your games and content, including previously installed games, will be ready and waiting for you on the EA app.”

Additionally, EA says the app will allow you to move both your Origin local and cloud saves as well as your friends list. Speaking of friends lists, the app lets you connect your EA account to other platforms, including Steam, Xbox, and PlayStation.

According to EA, macOS users will continue to use Origin for Mac. No modification is therefore necessary if you play on Mac.
