Origin is an application for loading video games made by Electronic Arts that allows users to purchase and add digital copies of games to their libraries, talk to other gamers, stream their games, test new games, etc. You can use this program to purchase and download on your PC various popular EA games such as Battlefield, Sims, FIFА, Need Fоr Speed, Sims, Dragon Age, The Witcher and others.
To use the program, you should create an Origin account, after which you’ll be free to purchase the games and save data to a cloud storage that will make it possible to resume the game from the last saved point or log in to the system from different devices.

If you right-click on the Origin icon in the systems tray, you expect it to do something even if you’re offline, right? Well, it didn’t use to but now it does. That’s fixed and will no longer disappoint your clicking expectations.
When the language was set to Japanese, the Origin installer would get a case of the hiccups and display Chinese characters instead of Japanese. We snuck up behind it and scared it. Hiccups cured!
The center of the screen is no place for the friends list, so we had the Origin In-Game overlay slide it over to the right, to the right.
There was an issue where the Great Game Guarantee refund period would start once you installed a game, rather than the first time you play it. No more false starts here!
Sims thrive in communities. So it helps that some Sims product pages are no longer missing the community creation section.
We explained to the search bar that games don’t just pop into existence when pre-orders start, so now you’ll find games that aren't on sale yet if you go searching.
We fixed the screenshot viewer so it disappears when it should instead of sticking around and being an attention hog.
You know how we sometimes have big, full-page announcements on Origin? They somehow made games from the Store disappear. Those games have returned with tales of strange, faraway servers.
The Invite button in the Invite Friends window was shy and use to hide off screen so nobody could socialize; we’ve moved it so it isn’t such a party-pooper anymore.
We stopped text from overlapping throughout Origin because you're not always in the mood for word puzzles.
We convinced the game rating hover that it isn't supposed to block the "Add to wishlist" and "Buy for myself" menu options. Yes, it's fine, we see you.
The Origin client used to play a lame prank where it would say you weren’t online even if you were. We told it to get better material.
We're working on vanquishing error 9:0 so Origin doesn’t go to pieces when it has to complete an installation or an update.
