Over the last ten years Electronic Arts has released PC games on its own digital service, Origin. That’s starting to change. This week, EA is moving over 25 games from its back catalog to Steam, including Command & Conquer Remastered Collection, which releases tomorrow, June 5. The biggest and more recent releases, such as Apex Legends and Battlefield 5, however, remain exclusively on Origin on PC, for now.
Below are a sample of the biggest past releases now available on Steam. Every EA game on Steam is also discounted up to 75% off through July 9.

“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.”
EA has also announced that future games will release on Steam along with other platforms, including Command & Conquer Remastered Collection, which will utilize the Steam Workshop for mods.
EA Access is also coming to Steam later this summer. EA Access is EA’s version of Xbox Game Pass, a Netflix-like subscription service that grants access to EA’s library of games, as well as limited trials for new releases and discounts on purchases.
