EA's Origin Launcher is easily one of the worst that PC gaming has to offer, having received relatively few updates in recent years. In its current state, Origin is known to also hamper the performance of some games. most famously impacting Mass Effect 3, as we covered earlier this year.

Thankfully, EA has confirmed that they are working on updating their Origin client, as now, the company is ready to showcase its new client to end-users, starting with an Origin Closed Beta for Origin Access Premier members. 

With their new Origin client, EA plans to deliver PC gamers a "fast, stable, and reliable app", and through their beta client, users will receive new features and improvements as the beta progresses over the next few months. 

Looking at the beta signup page for EA's new beta client, we can see that Origin will gain what appears to be a "Dark Mode", and a redesigned user interface. Below is what EA has to say about their Origin Beta. 


    Origin Players,
