The big American distributor decides to end the exclusivity of her works for her personal Origin platform, and does not even rule out collaborations with the storeEpic Store Continued
The platform of Steam It has suffered quite a few blows recently, when its young and cheeky competitor Epic Store managed to "snatch" from it quite a few prominent titles from big names with prestigious exclusivity agreements and a lower share of overall sales - but perhaps the worst is already behind it, and now Valve's Empire will succeed Go back to yourself and prove to creators that she is the top option in the field. In the meantime, it has one big and significant returning customer - EA Games, which will return to offer its latest titles in the store of Steam And also in the storeOrigin in parallel.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Promising will be the developer's and distributor's first fresh game to be launched on Steam in parallel with its launch in Origin, in less than a week, followed by titles like FIFA 20, Unravel 2, The Sims 4 andBattlefield V for service - when dual availability will not only be more convenient for consumers who prefer to group all the titles they own in the librarySteam Their with all the developed social characteristics in it, but also will probably double the opportunity to see Special Deals And discounts for them.
EA is working on adding an option for a joint game between players in Origin and players inSteam, But clarified that it is not possible to transfer saves between the versions and also that it will not be possible to play a game on the opposing platform for free after it has been purchased on a certain platform. Relatively disappointing, but we will be willing to accept these relative disadvantages for the blessed flexibility and increased availability of the games.
Apex Legends, EA's free online action hit, will be another title that will also be offered through the platform of Steam - and will be special in that it will not require a dedicated Origin account and the EA Games client is fixed on your computer system, but will be able to operate in full Steam And its online services. This is another happy and intriguing news, and who knows - maybe one day all of EA's games will be able to run onSteam Disconnected from my services Origin That many gamers dislike them even today.
This significant change in attitude is not limited toSteam, It seems, when an EA executive did not rule out a collaboration with the online store of epic Games One day as part of an interview with him. As long as this is not about any more controversial exclusive deals that will take place behind the scenes, we will not object.
