Origin client goes live for Mac

EA's digital delivery service kicks off on Mac with 50 games

EA has today launched its Origin digital delivery client for Mac.


The service has arrived with around 50 games - many of which are The Sims offerings - with Dragon Age 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum/City and Lego games in the starting line-up.

Similarly to the PC client, Origin for Mac offers users access to cloud storage to save and continue games elsewhere, social connectivity via friends lists and more.

Origin also offers "dual-platform play", which means purchasing a game on either PC or Mac will allow you to download that game on both platforms (depending on availability, of course).

Origin has nearly 40 million users across PC and iOS platforms, says EA, with over 500 games from EA and its publishing partners.
