Today I’m proud to announce the official launch of Origin for Mac. 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. Now Mac gamers can enjoy many of the same features that have defined Origin for PC users: including cloud storage to save and continue games, social connectivity via friends list, and more.
One new feature will be of particular interest for gamers who play on both PC and Mac machines: dual-platform play. For select EA games (that are available on both PC and Mac), you can buy a title once on Origin, and when you log into Origin on either Mac or PC, that same game will appear in your newly unified (Mac/PC) My Games library.
The Mac catalog includes titles from both EA and its publishing partners (such as Warner Brothers and Sega), including smash hit titles like Dragon Age 2, Batman: Arkham City GOTY Edition, LEGO Harry Potter, and The Sims 3. As a special launch offer, we're also having a Simtastic 13th Anniversary Sale, where you can download The Sims 3 base game and expansion packs on Origin for Mac for as little as $10—this sale is only running for a limited time, so act fast.
In delivering great game content, connecting with our Origin offerings on PC and iOS devices, and offering great value to gamers with dual-platform play on select titles, Origin is making it easier than ever before for gamers to connect and play anytime, anywhere. You can download Origin for Mac today at www.origin.com/download.
