EA Official Blog: EA Announces Partnership with Steam

The EA official blog just dropped some big news that Steam fans are sure to approve of. Starting next spring, EA will be bringing its subscription service, EA Access, to the Steam platform.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be the first title available under this new partnership. In later months, Steam players will also gain access to other titles like The Sims 4 and Unravel Two. Multiplayer games are planned for next year and players on both Origin and Steam will be able to play these multiplayer games together.

Here’s the full blog post from EA.com:

Electronic Arts and Valve have partnered to put EA games into the hands of the players on Steam. Starting next spring, EA Access—our ever-growing subscription service powered by great games and member benefits—will be making its way to Steam. EA Access is the first and only gaming subscription service available on Steam, and the fourth platform featuring an EA subscription.

The partnership kicks off with Star Wars™ Jedi: Fallen Order launching on November 15—and available for pre-order today. In the coming months, players on Steam will also be able to play other major titles like The Sims™ 4 and Unravel Two. Multiplayer games—like Apex Legends™, FIFA 20, and Battlefield™ V—will become available next year, and players on both Origin and Steam will have the ability to play together.

A library of titles awaits you in The Vault, but beyond the games themselves, EA Access enhances your gaming experience with a medley of rewards. Get the red-carpet treatment with exclusive catalog-wide discounts, and in-game member benefits for some of our biggest franchises.

Keep an eye out for more news and updates on this partnership in the coming weeks and months!
