If you bought physical games from EA’s Origin store, you won’t be able to do that now as the service is only going to offer digital games from now on.
EA made the following announcement in regards to the change in Origin:
Starting April 4th Origin will be going all digital. This means the entire Origin game store will be entirely digital downloads for PC and Mac.
What does this mean for you? If you’re among 99% of our users, absolutely nothing. Your shopping experience hasn’t changed one single bit.
But if you’re that 1% who still desires a physical collection, we want to let you know that Origin won’t be able to fulfill that need beginning April 4th. We’ll still be here when you transition your gaming habits to the wonders of digital downloads.
Digital is fast and convenient. Origin’s focus is to give gamers the best experience, and going all-digital will make that possible.
EA will still offer physical games. It’s just that you won’t be able to buy them via their Origin store just in case you got a bit confused by the announcement.
