Origin now available for Mac

EA’s direct download application, Origin™, is now available for Mac®! Origin for Mac is a new built-for-platform version of EA’s direct download application offering fast and safe game downloads for many of the industry’s most popular titles from EA and various publishing partners. The new Mac client delivers the same features as the PC version, including cloud storage to save and continue games, social connectivity via friends lists and now dual-platform play.

With dual-platform play, gamers will buy a game once and be able to download it for both PC and Mac (if the game is available for both platforms). After purchasing the game via Origin on one platform, as soon as a player logs into their other device, the game will appear ready for download in the Origin “My Games” tab.

“Our vision with Origin is to connect your gaming universe online, and today we’re taking a major step in expanding our service to reach Mac-based gamers worldwide,” said Michael Blank, Vice President of Production for Origin at EA. “In delivering great game content, connecting the Origin service across PC, Mac and iOS devices, and offering great value to gamers with dual-platform play on select EA titles, Origin is making it easier than ever before for gamers to connect and play anytime, anywhere.”

Origin for Mac launches with a catalogue of hit titles from EA and publishing partners available for immediate purchase and download, including Dragon Age™ 2, Batman: Arkham City, LEGO Harry Potter and The Sims™ 3.
