EA Origin is a free download manager for games from EA.

EA Origin, also known as just Origin, is an easy-to-use app that lets you download and play games from EA.

It’s important to first point out that many games from EA can’t be downloaded on PC without Origin – even if you buy them through Steam. It can feel a little unfair at times but they make the games and we have to play by their rules.

On the other hand, the program itself is very efficient and easy to use. All you have to do is sign in with your Origin ID; if you don’t have one you can register for an account in just a couple minutes with a valid email address.

From there you can buy and download games, grab free trials and handle everything to do with your Origin account. The program will also automatically download any updates and patches, helping your games stay up to date.

Aside from the fact that you have to install it just so you can play EA games, it’s not a bad program. It downloads things quickly, it’s easy to use, helps keep your games up to date and even shows you when new games come on sale.


  • Easy to Use Origin is a surprisingly easy to use download manager.
  • Downloads Games Fast Games are downloaded torrent-style in multiple parts from multiple sources, making your downloads fast.
  • Keep Your Games Up-to-Date Games downloaded with the program will be kept up to date with patches and new content automatically, no effort required.


  • EA Games Won’t Work Without It Games from EA won’t work without this program, so if you’re playing Mass Effect, Dragon Age or other AAA titles you’ll need to download it.
