EA titles returning to Steam

Patricia Hernandez for Polygon:

The first new EA game coming to Steam will be Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which will arrive on Nov. 15 — and incidentally can be pre-ordered starting today. Later this year, The Sims 4 and Unravel 2 will come to Steam. Next year, other EA franchises will return on Steam, such as Apex Legends, FIFA 20, and Battlefield 5 — all of which were previously only playable on PC via Origin.

This is great news for players having to deal with the growing number of launchers on their machines. It also feels like a direct shot at Epic and their strategy of timed exclusives on their own store which I’ve felt for a while now has been consumer hostile and short-sighted on their part.
