EA Is Bringing A Bunch Of Titles Over To Steam As Of Now


More than 25 EA titles are now available on Steam as EA aims to make it more accessible for gamers to play and buy their titles where they want

It looks like EA is finally making the bigger push over to Steam, as today you can head over there on your PC and pick up some titles that have yet to be on the platform as of yet. Steam and not specifically PC. Thus, allowing more PC gamers out there to pick up and enjoy the titles they may have wanted for a while now but did not want to have to put up with EA Access to do so. Titles like Dragon Age, Need For Speed, and Mirror's Edge among the listed with many more to come in the future. It just looks like they are finally realizing that throwing out a broader net will score them more cash in the end. It took way too long, but at least it is a thing now.

This is not only for the bigger titles in the EA wheelhouse but also some of their indie titles too. Titles like Unravel and Fe are listed here, with many more to come as it all sounds. Good news for those out there that enjoy only having to run one bit of software to load up all of their video games on their system. Here is a look at what EA has stated thus far and a bit more on what to expect.

EA Games — Steam

Today, Electronic Arts Inc. launched the first wave of 25+ EA games on Steam, with more on the way. Starting today, players can explore BioWare’s award-winning Role-Playing Games - Dragon Age: Inquisition and Dragon Age II, experience high-speed, white-knuckle driving action in Need For Speed Heat, Need For Speed: Rivals and Need For Speed (2016) and battle it out in the wacky, fun and over-the-top shooter, Plants Vs. Zombies: Battle For Neighborville. A selection of the bold and innovative games from EA’s indie development partners like Unravel, Unravel II, Fe, and Sea Of Solitude will also become available. Additionally, these games and many others will be available as part of an EA Access subscription on Steam that will launch to players later this summer.

“We want to make it easy to play the games you love, wherever you want to play. Delivering games to the Steam community is an important step in achieving this goal,” said Mike Blank, SVP, Strategic Growth. “Not only are we excited to have our games on Steam, but we look forward to bringing them even more value when our subscription becomes available in the Summer.”

New EA games developed for PC will also launch on Steam alongside other platforms, including the Command & Conquer Remastered Collection which launches tomorrow, providing mod support with the Steam Workshop as this game is one of the first major RTS franchises to open source their source code under the GPL. The compilation, which was made for and with the help of the community, is comprised of Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn, Command & Conquer: Red Alert, and their three expansion packs - Covert Ops, Counterstrike and The Aftermath.

EA Access gives members access to a broad portfolio of EA games, valuable member benefits and discounts on full EA game purchases, expansions, and in-game items. EA has been offering subscription services since 2014, and currently reaches players on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Origin platforms.
