There are several competing PC video game storefronts out there, but Steam commands the lion’s share of attention, purely through the inertia of being the one most relied on. There’s also GMG, Humble, and the Epic Games Store, plus the e-markets built into your computer like the Microsoft Store and iOS. At the bottom of the list is Origin, the storefront from Electronic Arts, which consumers only use begrudgingly when one of EA’s own games forces them to.
But there are a number of good games on Origin. Not nearly as many (the PR they just handed us boasts of “200+ games”), but they’re there. Last month Origin gained Madden NFL 20, Sea of Solitude, A Plague Tale: Innocence and Moonlighter. This month they’re adding Warhammer: Chaosbane Magnus Edition, Vampyr, Overcooked, The Escapist, Yoku’s Island Express and more.
Warhammer: Chaosbane Magnus Edition,the first hack-and-slash entry in the renowned Warhammer franchise, with an emphasis on action-packed co-op play (and humour). Choose a hero from four character classes and prepare for epic battles wielding some of the most powerful artefacts of the Old World. Additionally, Premier members can experience the Magnus Edition, which comes with a gold boost, unique character emotes, unique character pets, a fragment boost, and the season pass.
Origin Access Basic and Premiermembers can jump into one of the most requested and best action games of 2018,Vampyr.
