Origin is a digital distribution platform developed by Electronic Arts for purchasing and playing video games. The platform's software client is planned to be available both on PC and mobile.

Origin contains social features such as profile management, networking with friends with chat and direct game joining along with an in-game overlay, streaming via TwitchTV and sharing of game library and community integration with networking sites like Facebook, Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, and Nintendo Network. In 2011, Electronic Arts stated that it wanted Origin to match Valve Corporation's Steam service, Origin's primary competitor, by adding cloud game saves, auto-patching, achievements, and cross-platform releases. By 2013, Origin had over 50 million registered users.

The Origin store allows users to browse and purchase games for full price from Electronic Arts' catalogs. Instead of receiving a box, disc, or even CD key, purchased software is immediately attached to the user's Origin account and is to be downloaded with the corresponding Origin client.

Origin guarantees download availability forever after purchase, and there is no limit to the number of times a game can be downloaded. Users can score sweet deals in the Origin store and rest easy knowing they can return their purchase with the Great Game Guarantee. From Battlefield to The Sims, FIFA to Mass Effect and more, there's something for everyone. The recently most popular game Origin offers is Apex legends, a semi-realistic battle royale game that strongly rivals Epic`s Fortnite. The game is also free to play.

Users may also add certain EA games to their Origin account by using CD keys from retail copies, and digital copies obtained from other digital distribution services. However, the addition of retail keys to Origin is restricted to games from 2009 onward and older keys will not work even if the game is available on Origin, unless user contacts customer support.

The Origin client is self-updating software that allows users to download games, expansion packs, content booster packs and patches from Electronic Arts. It shows the status of components available. The Origin client is designed to be similar to its competitor, Steam. The Origin In Game overlay client can be disabled while playing games. The client also has chat features such as a Friends List and a group chat options. Client and download performance has been patched and improved in past updates.

At E3 2018 EA announced a premium tier for Origin Access called Origin Access Premier, that allows to play future EA games early, the games will be full version in contrast to the "First Trials" giving to basic Origin Access members.
