Origin Expands To Offer Games From 3rd Party Publishers

Yesterday we hit a major milestone as we announced that Origin will soon feature third party content. We’re incredibly excited that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, THQ, and Capcom will be the first publishers to offer their games via Origin. Beginning in November, Origin will feature top new releases including Batman: Arkham City, Saints Row: The Third, and more, ready for purchase and download. We’ll continue to add more games from these partners in the coming months, giving you even more choice for the latest and greatest gaming content.

As we welcome our new partners, we continue to make Origin better by adding new features such as our beta cloud storage, which allows you to save games and gameplay achievements online and then access them from any PC. We’ve also added live streaming demos, so you can try out hit titles like Crysis 2, Dragon Age 2, and The Sims Medieval. Finally, you can now play incredibly popular  and highly addictive browser games like Plants vs. Zombies and The Sims Social. All of this is built on a foundation of fast and safe game downloads, with social connectivity to your gaming friends.

Batman: Arkham City and Saints Row: The Third will be available on Origin for pre-order starting in early November, and this is just the beginning. As I’ve said before, we believe in choice, and adding great content from our partners means more choices for you on Origin.
