It’s Official: Electronic Arts Is Coming Back To Steam! [VIDEO]

Electronic Arts (whose business strategy and fiscal results get a separate bunch of characters) will use the same method that Ubisoft was doing until they decided to go down the road with the Epic Games Store exclusivity deals.

Electronic Arts officially announced that not only the EA game library will show up on Gabe Newell’s digital store front, but they will also offer EA Access over Steam, too. We don’t have to wait much, as the first game will be Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which you can already pre-order on Steam. It will work the same way as Ubisoft’s titles with UPlay. You’ll need Origin to access the games over Steam. Respawn’s game will also use Denuvo once again, as the company thinks it needs extra DRM to reach the 6-8 million sales by the end of March, while we say that all they have to do is make a good game, just ask CD Projekt RED.

„This is the start of an exciting partnership with Valve that will see us innovating for PC players around the world. Through our subscription, great games and more, we’re excited to bring players in the Steam and Origin communities together with access to the best games, whenever and wherever they want to play,” Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson said in a press release. „This is a good day for gamers. We’re excited to partner with EA to not only bring their great games and subscription service to Steam but also to open up our communities to each other in an unprecedented way that will benefit players and developers around the world,” Valve’s Gabe Newell added. By subscription, they meant EA Access, which is currently available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. For a monthly fee, you get to access several EA titles. On Steam, it will be available from next Spring.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which will launch on November 15 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and we’re happy to say Steam along Origin on PC, has also received its launch trailer – Respawn’s single-player adventures are coming shortly.
