News broke yesterday from the Wall Street Journal, that Electronic Arts is starting their very own digital download service called Origin. The website will be premiered today at 9am pst. This early announcement prompted Stephen Reid, BioWare Senior Online Community Manager to make this post on the official SWTOR forums here. The most important item gleaned from his post is:
“Origin is a fantastic new digital initiative from EA, and we’re pleased to confirm that Star Wars: The Old Republic will be available exclusively for digital download from Origin.”
The official article from EA states that Origin will be a full service download site that will include a desktop and mobile application. It will now be easier than ever to get all your favorite EA games from one source.
