EA has confirmed it will offer a suite of online-only games for Origin in the coming weeks, but will not be selling them to retailers.
The company has confirmed that this means that you will not get the game on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, but it won’t be available to purchase on the PlayStation Store.
Instead, you will be able to buy the game from EA’s official website.
The games will only be available in Origin, but the games will be listed as downloadable on the Origin website, rather than being listed as in-store purchases.
The only difference between the two is that the Origin store will only list the game as in stock.
The Origin games are the latest to be added to EA Access, which allows people to purchase games in the UK and other countries from a wider range of publishers, from traditional publishers such as Electronic Arts and Activision, to smaller studios.
In the future, EA Access will allow you to purchase Origin games from the Origin Store, although that service will remain available to people outside of the UK.
The service will also be available on Xbox Live Gold, which lets users play Origin games for free.
In terms of the game catalog, EA’s list includes a number of titles that are currently available on other consoles, including the likes of Halo 4, Need for Speed: Most Wanted and Battlefield 4.
However, you can expect EA to soon be introducing the Origin-only titles, with games like Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline currently in the pipeline.
In a blog post, EA Studios chief executive Karl Slatoff said that the company had “remained committed to our long-term plans to deliver a global, cross-platform, all-access offering” for Origin and Origin Access.
“As a key pillar of our platform offering, Origin will continue to grow in strength,” he said.
