EA Partners With Valve To Bring EA Games And EA Access To Steam

EA and Valve are partnering up to put both games and EA Access (EA's subscription service) on Steam. 

The first big drop for this initiative is Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order on Steam, launching on November 15. A glance at the title's Steam page seems to indicate that users opting in on Steam will still need to have Origin installed, similar to how games like Division 2 direct you through Uplay to play.

UPDATE 10/29/2019: A Reddit post by someone identified as a Respawn Dev on the Apex Legends subreddit has stated that "your games will launch directly with Steam without running Origin."

Other big titles like Apex Legends and Battlefield V will hit Steam next year. Still want to play on Origin? No problem, you'll be able to play with Steam users.
