On the occasion of the simultaneous launch of Command & Conquer Remastered we get a further warming in the relationship between Steam To-Origin With dozens of new games - which will now be subject to the direct opinion of the players
Somewhere in the early days of the Origin platform from EA Games, we saw the major American developer and distributor remove most of its work from Steam, hoping the exclusivity would convince Gamers Migrating en masse - and although the huge revenues of hits like FIFA 20 and The Sims 4 prove that this business move has been successful, at least in part, lately it seems that we are seeing the gradual renewed connection between EA andValve.
After the big and successful launch of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Empire in both the Origin store and the Steam store at the same time, We are launching the Command & Conquer Remastered Collection For both platforms at the same time (when consumers do not even have to have an active Origin user to access the creation from Steam) - and the re-launch of dozens of other titles from the past onSteam As a pleasant surprise.
From now on, works from the series Need for Speed, Dragon Age, Crysis, Mirror's Edge and others will also be available for purchase through the store.Steam - which will finally allow us to also know exactly what the players themselves think of them, thanks to the system of reviews and ratings inSteam Which does not exist in the platform Origin The competitor.
This is a welcome development that will provide richer choices for consumers - but it is worth noting that currently activating all the new titles requires an active Origin account and its link to an active account inSteam, Plus for local installation of the Origin application. In addition, the pricing in shekels inSteam Significantly higher than the pricing of those titles in Euro are inSteam Itself and in Origin's store, so purchasing rather through Steam It is not a particularly smart move, at least for an audience from Israel that has been significantly harmed here by the use of puzzling conversion values.
At EA Games they preferred to keep some of the winning cards close to their chests, so titles from the FIFA series and the Madden NFL series, The Sims 4 and Apex Legends games as well as the latest episodes from the series Battlefield Have not yet landed inSteam - But we will keep our fingers crossed that this will also happen at a later stage, along with updating the price tags so that they will be more competitive and lucrative.
In addition to EA's welcome lateral move, another popular game released from its exclusivity is the online Sea of Thieves, from Microsoft and Rare, which is now also available through Steam and not just Microsoft's personal digital store. Users still need a system Windows 10 and account Xbox Live is active to play in the title, unfortunately - but it seems that the comprehensive and familiar shell of the home platform Valve Enough to make users more positive, with 83 percent positive reviews for the title and a reception that feels much better than the one with which it originally landed two years ago.
