Origin lets you purchase and play EA games - any time and any place you want. With the in-game overlay, you can browse the web while playing select games.
Origin's social features allow you to create a profile, connect and chat with your friends, share your game library, and effortlessly join your friends' games.
Origin streamlines the download process, for quick, easy installation and use. Direct download of PC games requires the Origin client, and once you have it, you'll be able to access your game library from virtually anywhere. You can even play your favorite games on other PCs when you're on the go.
Origin is a replacement for EA Download Manager.

Users encountered a bug where they couldn't place voice calls. We swam to the bottom of the sea and reclaimed the stolen voices and calls from a sea witch and her moray eels.

Don’t worry, we bagged and tagged the gremlins causing some games to start changing drive locations after users log out of Origin while repairing or locating another.
