Electronic Arts has unveiled plans to return to Steam in late 2019, reversing its former split with Valve's digital PC storefront almost one decade prior. The hit publisher kicks off availability with Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, later tailed by its future titles, and the EA Access game subscription service.
Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order is scheduled to launch on November 15, alongside Origin for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Existing EA titles will see a staggered Steam launch over the coming months, as the publisher migrates a portion of its portfolio from Origin. Next spring also marks the arrival of EA Access for Steam, the store's first game subscription service, under a flat monthly fee.
List of upcoming EA games on Steam (2019-2020)
Electronic Arts has confirmed only a subset of recent titles hitting Steam, promising further details shortly. The publisher has committed to six titles alongside its plans, spread from November 2019 into 2020. We've wrapped up the EA titles planned for Steam so far.
- Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (November 15, 2019)
- The Sims 4 (Late 2019 – Early 2020)
- Unravel 2 (Late 2019 – Early 2020)
- Apex Legends (2020)
- Battlefield V (2020)
- FIFA 20 (2020)
It's still early days for EA on Steam, as the publisher sets out to relaunch its back catalog over the coming months. EA Access features nearly 100 titles on Xbox One, with around half that on PlayStation 4, given exclusivity deals and lack of backward compatibility. With EA Access for Steam set for next spring, expect a wave of further titles ahead of the subscription's launch.
Origin Access is now available via EA's Origin client in the meantime, packing over 200 PC titles both from EA and third-party partners from $4.99 monthly.
