EA announces partnership with Valve – EA’s returning to Steam!

Following last weekend’s Steamy EA teaser, Electronic Arts has announced that they have partnered with Valve to bring EA games into the hands of PC gamers on Steam alongside a new subscription called EA Access.   

This partnership will start on November 15th with the release of Star Wars: Jedi – Fallen Order, which will release on Steam and Origin. Over the next few months, The Sims 4, Apex Legends, FIFA 20 and Battlefield V will also appear on Steam. 

EA Access will be the first game subscription service to arrive on Steam, offering discounts across EA’s entire game library, access to EA’s game vault and other, unknown benefits. 

Below is EA’s official announcement of their partnership with Valve. 


    Electronic Arts and Valve have partnered to put EA games into the hands of the players on Steam. Starting next spring, EA Access—our ever-growing subscription service powered by great games and member benefits—will be making its way to Steam. EA Access is the first and only gaming subscription service available on Steam, and the fourth platform featuring an EA subscription.

The partnership kicks off with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order launching on November 15—and available for pre-order today. In the coming months, players on Steam will also be able to play other major titles like The Sims 4 and Unravel Two. Multiplayer games—like Apex Legends, FIFA 20, and Battlefield V—will become available next year, and players on both Origin and Steam will have the ability to play together.

A library of titles awaits you in The Vault, but beyond the games themselves, EA Access enhances your gaming experience with a medley of rewards. Get the red-carpet treatment with exclusive catalog-wide discounts, and in-game member benefits for some of our biggest franchises.

Keep an eye out for more news and updates on this partnership in the coming weeks and months!
