In October 2019, Electronic Arts announced a new partnership with Valve that would bring EA games to Steam (and in some cases, bring them back). The process began a couple weeks later with the release of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, but today the first big batch arrived—and they’re all on sale, too.
Here’s what’s arrived, in no particular order:
And while they’re not new to Steam, a number of other quality EA games including Plants vs. Zombies: GOTY Edition, Mirror’s Edge, the rest of the Crysis games, and Peggle Complete are also on sale. (Chuzzle Deluxe is $2.50 and I really cannot recommend it highly enough.)
Electronic Arts also said in last year’s Steam announcement that the EA Access subscription service would also be coming to Steam this spring. The wheels appear to be turning on that part of the plan too: The Steam pages for each of the new games bears an image saying it’s coming soon, with “exclusive trials, great games, and more.”
Details on how EA Access will be implemented on Steam haven’t been announced yet, but it’s essentially the console version of Origin Access: It’s $5 per month or $30 per year, and offers discounts on purchases of full games, DLC, and season passes, pre-release access to new games, and unlimited access to a large selection of new and older EA releases. I expect we’ll be hearing more about the Steam rollout soon—we’ll let you know when we do.
