Have You Tried EA Games Now That They're On Steam?

Have you gone back to give an EA game a try, now that Origin isn't the only option?

Online game store Steam is still prominently displaying advertisements from Electronic Arts (EA) bringing over several of their releases to the platform. Previously publisher EA had vacated Valve's store to start their own ecosystem with Origin. With front page ads now remaining on Steam, it's safe to assume the deal brokered between the two is expected to pay dividends.

EA, Games, Steam, Origin, Discount

Both old and new games were added to the catalog. For instance, the freshly announced partnership with Rocket Arena, a 3 versus 3 multiplayer game, is available for pre-purchase. Games like the two Battlefront games, which already boasted huge sale numbers, are available as well. Most of the catalog also currently on sale for at least a 50% discount, to entice people to hop into an EA product. So the question is, have you gone back to give an EA game a try, now that Origin isn't the only option?

Early on, Origin was criticized for having a bad user experience. Eventually, programs like the EA Access subscription model were able to sway some people. It wasn't until the highly successful battle royale, Apex Legends, that EA's launcher really thrived, but that didn't necessarily mean a turnover for other titles.

Currently, Titanfall 2 is one of the top sellers on Steam. As far as options go, this is likely the best choice, even if it's just for the mind-bending campaign. This is the shooter that would eventually influence Apex Legends, but add to that a few really cool giant robots. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is another recent winner in the stable that's currently 50% off. For those who like the challenging over-the-shoulder action of games like Dark Souls, but with known source material, this game should be one to try. And, of course, those who just want to chill and build stuff can now find The Sims 4, one of the largest franchises in the world, right on Steam.

Let us know if you've been taking a second look at EA games now that they're on Steam.
