REDWOOD CITY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) today launched Origin™ for the Mac®, a new built-for-platform version of EA’s direct download application for Mac users worldwide. Just as it has for tens of millions of PC users, Origin for Mac will offer fast and safe game downloads for many of the industry’s most popular titles from EA and publishing partners. Origin for Mac is ready for download today at www.origin.com/download.
Origin for Mac delivers many of the same Origin features that have defined the experience for PC users, including cloud storage to save and continue games, social connectivity via friends lists, and more.
But Origin for Mac will offer additional value to gamers who play on both PC and Mac devices: dual-platform play for select EA titles. With dual-platform play, gamers will buy a game once and be able to download it for both PC and Mac (if the game is available for both platforms). After purchasing the game via Origin on one platform, as soon as a player logs into their other device, the game will appear ready for download in the Origin “My Games” tab.
“Our vision with Origin is to connect your gaming universe online, and today we’re taking a major step in expanding our service to reach Mac-based gamers worldwide,” said Michael Blank, Vice President of Production for Origin at EA. “In delivering great game content, connecting the Origin service across PC, Mac and iOS devices, and offering great value to gamers with dual-platform play on select EA titles, Origin is making it easier than ever before for gamers to connect and play anytime, anywhere.”
Origin for Mac launches with a catalogue of hit titles from EA and publishing partners available for immediate purchase and download, including Dragon Age™ 2, Batman: Arkham City, LEGO Harry Potter and The Sims™ 3.
In a special launch offer and to celebrate more than a decade of The Sims, players can enjoy huge savings across The Sims 3 franchise on Origin. The Sims anniversary sale gives players a chance to download The Sims 3 base game, plus numerous expansion and stuff packs via the new Origin for Mac application for as little as $10. These ‘simtastic’ savings on Origin are available for a limited time, so players should act fast.
For the best experience, Origin for Mac users should be running OS X 10.6.8 or newer with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor or better. Today, Origin has nearly 40 million users across PC and iOS platforms. Origin for PC offers more than 500 titles from EA and publishing partners around the globe, and is designed to offer a more dynamic and convenient play experience for the gamer. Origin for iOS devices is integrated into more than 50 EA games, offering single ID sign-on across multiple games, cloud saves, friends lists and achievement sharing.

Simmers around the world rejoice! For those of you who love Origin, but hate digital games, are going to love this! Starting this week, Origin will begin shipping select physical games to the UK, and then begin the process of making this service available across Europe with all their products.
Until now, there’s been one part of Origin that we’ve only offered in North America: sales of boxed games. While Origin is primarily a place to download, play and connect to your favorite games online, sometimes you need a place to buy a disc-based game for your PC or console, and today we’re pleased to begin offering purchase and delivery of packaged EA games in Europe.
We’ll start this week with the UK, with additional countries being added throughout the month. By the end of November, customers across most of Europe will be able to enjoy this service. Initially, we’ll offer a selection of EA titles, and gradually include more games over time. And rest assured — all of the downloadable games in Origin’s library will remain available for players in Europe, and you’ll still be able to buy all of your favorite EA games at local retailers worldwide.
Offering boxed games for sale in Europe is another opportunity for Origin to bring the best gaming content in the world directly to the Origin community. As always, we hope you will leave us a comment and tell us how we can make Origin even better for you, no matter where you are.
