EA Launches Origin For Mac

EA has released the much anticipated Origin client for the Mac platform, bringing EA’s games to Mac as direct downloads.

The Origin store has been updated with a Mac section, majority of which involve The Sims 3 and its expansion packs. Other major titles like Dead Space 3, Battlefield 3 and FIFA 13 do not appear since they don’t have Mac counterparts in the first place. PC and Mac compatible games, however, offer themselves up as a one-time-purchase playable on two platforms, similar to SteamPlay on its digital distribution competitor, Steam.

Origin for Mac was previously announced at a press conference during last year’s gamescom, promising the release of Simcity on Mac OS X.
