Origin Is Dead: Soon To Be Replaced By A New App From Electronic Arts!

Formerly known as the EA Desktop app, it’s out of its PC beta, so it’s only a matter of time before it takes over from Origin.


Electronic Arts has announced on its website that the EA app, which will be less taxing and faster (at least that’s what the Andrew Wilson-led company promises…) on your PC, has finished its beta testing and is ready to take over from Origin: “The EA app is our fastest and lightest PC client to date. With the new streamlined design, you will easily find the games and content you’re looking for and discover your new favourite games. With automatic game downloads and background updates, you can ensure that your games are ready to play when you are.

You will also be able to build your ultimate friends list by connecting your EA account to other platforms and services like Steam, Xbox [Xbox Live] and PlayStation [PlayStation Network]. You’ll be easily recognizable with your custom, unique ID. Once you’re connected, know what and when your friends are playing so you can jump in and play together.

For our Origin players, we’ve worked hard to make the transition to the EA app as simple as possible. We will be inviting you to make a move soon, and by the time you receive your invite, all your games and content, including games previously installed, will be ready and waiting for you on the EA app. Your local and cloud saves will transfer forward, ensuring you can pick up where you left off. Your friends list transfers, too, so you won’t have to worry about remembering all those player IDs,” Electronic Arts says.

It’s also good news that Dead Space Remake will no longer require the EA app to play the game if you buy Motive’s game on Steam, although that doesn’t mean it will apply to all other Electronic Arts games. At least there will be exceptions. Still, it is another app next to who knows how many (Steam and Epic Games Launcher are just two examples…).
