Welcome back.
Dragon Age 2

It started with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order back in November of 2019, but now more and more Electronic Arts titles are making their way to Steam. It's been a long time coming, delayed undoubtedly by things like the COVID-19 global quarantine and potentially other setbacks. But here on June 4, 2020, a growing number of EA titles are showing up on Steam.

As of the time of this news post, roughly 20 titles and DLC have been added from EA on to Steam. You can see the current list by going to this curated Steam search for titles published by Electronic Arts. The games are being added over time, so by the time you get around to reading this, the list will have undoubtedly grown in size from where it is for me right now.

Some of the games just launched on Steam include:
  • Crysis 3
  • Burnout Paradise Remastered
  • Dragon Age Inquisition
  • Dragon Age 2
  • Need for Speed Rivals
  • Need for Speed Heat
  • Mirror's Edge Catalyst
  • Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville
  • Unravel
  • Unravel 2
From the looks of it, all of these titles are available for around 50% off (or more in many cases) from June 4 through until July 9. There are some great deals available already.

It's not clear just yet which other titles will be added to Steam from EA today. We do know that Apex Legends is coming to Steam, but we don't know the date of that just yet either. Will we see newer titles like Battlefield V, Madden NFL 21, or even Anthem? I guess we'll find out shortly.

EA Access Steam

EA has a lot of reason to push for as many titles as possible on Steam because they're also bringing over their EA Access subscription service. This will be a bit different from their Origin Access and Origin Access Premier service that allows users to play an entirely library of games for either a monthly or yearly subscription fee. For instance, I had Origin Access Premier for the past two years. I paid $100 per year for access to the entirety of EA's gaming library, even unlimited access to their newest releases.

EA Access on Steam may act more closely to its console counterpart. EA Access on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One provides 10-hour trials for the newest releases, unlimited access to older "Vault" titles, and discounts on purchases.

Again, we don't really know many of these details just yet. There is an EA Play showcase set to take place on June 11. We may find out more information there about EA Access on Steam. EA may also have some surprise Steam releases that they're tucking away for the event.
