EA is planning to bring more games to Steam in the coming months, including The Sims 4 and Unravel 2. Multiplayer games on the other hand like Apex Legends, FIFA 20, and Battlefield V are expected to be making their way on to Steam by next year.

In addition to standalone games, the EA Access subscription service is headed to Steam next spring.

On Tuesday, Electronic Arts announced a new partnership with Valve to bring some of its games to Steam - confirming previous rumors.

EA to return to Steam?

EA and Valve made a joint announcement for this reforged partnership, which will put EA games back in the hands of players on Steam, the most popular platform for PC gaming. Rather than continuing to lose access to that market, EA chose to partner with Valve, and that partnership will actually bring them closer than ever. This Star Wars game is available for pre-order starting today on Steam.

But Origin faced pushback from a contingent of Steam-invested gamers nearly immediately, thanks in part to its lack of features and the prospect of managing a separate new friends list.

"Not true. Your games will launch directly with Steam without running Origin."
Now, it has officially confirmed that it will release its games on Steam. Origin will become the basic launcher, however, EA players will still get access to Steam features.

While nobody's sure how these two sides came together, the news comes at a time when Epic Games has been securing the exclusive PC distribution rights to a slew of titles.
