Like Steam and BlizzardNet, Origin is a free digital gaming service that combines a hub by which you can access a range of digital games bought online with a range of features to take your gaming experience to the next level. Origin is powered by Electronic Arts, one of the leading developers of video games, with a catalog that stretches back to 1982 and spans practically every genre imaginable. Origin provides a hub from which you can access a huge collection of games, ranging from the newest blockbusters to vintage classics, delivered in a package that allows you to purchase, play, and socialize all from the same interface.
The Origin client is like a fully featured digital arcade accessible directly through your PC or Mac. You'll find a range of blockbuster Electronic Arts games to suit any style, from the funny and open-ended sandbox offered by the Sims series to the frenetic and competitive multiplayer action of the Battlefield franchise to the epic storytelling and heart-rending choices of Mass Effect and Dragon Age. You'll also find a number of beloved classics and addictive casual games like Zuma's Revenge, Wing Commander: Heart of the Tiger, and Crusader: No Remorse. Origin even offers games by some of the biggest third party developers in the business like Warner Bros. Interactive and Ubisoft. Downloadable content is also available directly through the Origin client or website, providing a great way to extend the life of your favorite game.
Electronic Arts rewards Origin users by providing a number of ways to play for free. The On the House program features a rotating selection of great free games rotated on a regular basis. Any games claimed are yours for good. The Origin Game Time service allows you an innovative means to try before you buy, giving you a set number of hours to play full versions of some of the company's premiere games at no cost. You'll also find a selection of demos and betas, allowing you to try your hand at some of the coolest single player games or test out multiplayer components on games that haven't even been released yet.
The Origin client is about more than just putting all your games in one place. It's about integrating the entirety of your gaming experience into the rest of your online social life and finding new and innovative ways to expand the social aspects of the games themselves. Auto-patching means your games will always be updated to the newest and best version, while automatic cloud saving means you don't have to worry about losing saved progress, regardless of what machine you're using to access your Origin account. A robust achievements and rewards system encourages players to aim for a higher level of play and lets them display these awards like a badge of honor. The client contains robust options for sharing your experience, both in and out of game. A dedicated friends list and chat feature allows you to stay in touch with fellow gamers both in and out of game and quickly invite friends to a multiplayer match or join one already in progress, while an integrated group chat option makes coordinating during multiplayer sessions a breeze. Players can broadcast their proudest moments using in client Twitch TV streaming integration, and experiences can be directly shared via social media services like Xbox Live, Facebook, and the PlayStation and Nintendo Networks.
