EA officially began its return journey to Steam last year with the release of STAR WARS Jedi: Fallen Order, finally shedding the Origin exclusivity it had held for its PC games for many years. Now, the publisher has quietly pushed out a new wave of its games on to the Valve platform, including Need for Speed games, EA Originals titles, while also completing a few old franchises that were left stranded.
Here are the EA games that have released on Steam today, so far, and some of them have DLC packs available for purchase as well:
- Dragon Age II
- Crysis 3
- Need for Speed Heat
- Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville
- Need for Speed Rivals
- Need for Speed
- Sea of Solitude
- Dragon Age Inquisition
- Unravel Two
- Burnout Paradise Remastered
- Mirror's Edge Catalyst
EA is celebrating the move with discounts on these titles, cutting the prices by up to 75% off. We could see more EA games release waves like this happen going forward, or the publisher could opt for more of a steady stream of launches approach as the porting process from Origin to Steam happen in the background.
Keep in mind that an Origin Account is still needed to play these games. The company has confirmed that cross-play will be enabled between Steam and Origin, and it is also planning to bring over more recent heavy hitters, like Apex Legends, Battlefield V, and FIFA games, in the future.
Moreover, just like EA promised last year, the EA Access subscription program is making its way to Steam. There isn't a release date attached to this variant yet, but all of the games that moved to Steam today tout a banner that says EA Access is coming soon to the platform with "exclusive trials, great games, and more."
