More to come
EA is making good on that promise to bring more games to Steam nine years after an exodus from Valve’s platform in favor of its own marketplace, EA Origin. This rekindled relationship just took a big step forward as EA added 13 more games to Steam.
This morning, EA put these games on Steam:
- Burnout Paradise Remastered ($5)
- Crysis 3 ($10)
- Dragon Age II($10)
- Dragon Age: Inquisition ($20)
- Mirror’s Edge Catalyst($10)
- Need for Speed($10)
- Need for Speed: Heat($28)
- Need for Speed: Rivals($10)
- Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for the Neighborville ($20)
- Sea of Solitude ($10)
- Unravel 2($10)
Most of them are old, but some of them are relatively new. Also, all of them are on sale — a minimum of 50 percent but some all the way up to 75 percent off. The listings above reflect the sale price. The discounts are good until July 9.
However, if you don’t want to jump in head-first on full-blown ownership, EA is also bringing its subscription service to Steam. EA Access will launch sometime this summer, and its library will include all the games listed above. EA Access is expected to run $5 per month, which is how much it costs on EA Origin.
There’s more coming too. This is just the “first wave” of EA games on Steam. It’ll eventually swell to more than 25 games total. EA says that we’ll get more info about EA Access and new Steam games during EA Play Live next Thursday.
