Valve was the pioneer company in the distribution of games via a digital platform thanks to the launching of Steam, and as time has gone by their rival companies have finally clicked on that this kind of platform can also be used as a good instrument against piracy, like Electronic Arts (EA) has done with Origin.
Have your games updated on your computer
Among the advantages offered by Origin the user will find the possibility to buy some of the Electronic Arts games in digital format and associate them to his/her account, thus being able to install the game on as many computers as he/she wants.
Games for all ages and audiences.
On the other hand, it can also be associated to physical format games by means of its code, and from that moment onwards it will take care of notifying the user when there are updates available for the games they have installed, so that they will always have the latest version at their disposal.
Essential digital platform
With the launching of their latest games, Electronic Arts has decided also to use it as an anti-piracy method, because games like Battlefield 3 or Mass Effect 3 require it to be installed to be able to play.
Therefore, if you want to enjoy the latest games by Electronic Arts and know at all times if they are updated, download Origin for free.
