EA Launches Origin Online Game Distribution for Mac
A Mac client for EA's digital distribution platform Origin was launched today, as first noted by AppleInsider. Origin for Mac was originally announced in August 2011 and went into alpha testing in late January.*
Origin is quite similar to Valve's Steam and allows users to download games and demos, chat with friends and continue saved games from most computers.
The store currently lists 48 Mac games available for download, including games like Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition, LEGO Batman, Harry Potter and Star Wars, Tropico 3: Gold Edition and The Sims 3 and its plethora of expansion packs.*The new SimCity is supposed to launch a little after the March release of the PC version of the game.
EA Origin Vice President of Production Mike Blank told AppleInsider that EA brought Origin to Mac because of two reasons: growing Mac marketshare and a vocal community of Mac gamers.
