EA-Wide Maintenance Scheduled For Tuesday

A number of EA's services will be temporarily unavailable on Tuesday, January 31 as we undergo a brief scheduled maintenance.

If you play a game that requires you to log in to our servers, such as Battlefield 3 or Need for Speed The Run, you will need to wait until the maintenance period has concluded to begin playing again. Star Wars: The Old Republic will be offline for slightly longer due to a separate scheduled maintenance. EA games that can be played in Offline Mode should remain playable.

Users will be unable to log in to the Origin client, Online Multi-Player game lobbies, or the Origin store while maintenance is taking place. As a result, you will be unable to purchase games or redeem codes during the maintenance window.

Maintenance is scheduled to begin at 12:00 a.m. PST and end at 3:00 a.m. PST on January 31, 2012.

As we work to improve our service to the EA community, we’d like to thank you again for your patience and support. If you have a question about any of our games or services, you can visit our database of frequently asked questions at the EA Help Center. Please note that live assistance will not be available until after maintenance has concluded.
