Origin officially launches on Mac


Origin has had an alpha client on Mac since back in September, and today the service officially launches. Origin features on Mac are pretty much the same as on PC – you can upload saves to the cloud, interact with friends and the community through Origin's social feeds and, uh, play games.

Select EA games that are compatible on both Mac and PC will also support cross-platform play – if you purchased a game on PC and it's also compatible with Mac, you also get access to that. Sound familiar?

EA launched its digital distribution platform Origin in the summer of 2011. During its first year, the service garnered 12 million downloads and signed 50 publishing partners. As of October 2012, Origin has accrued 30 million registered players, 4.4 million of whom have forked over cash for content.
