Origin Client Update Coming Soon
Ah, Origin. The digital distribution platform that everyone loves to hate. While EA wasn’t busy unwisely picking a fight with Steam, it was looking for feedback about the service and with an eye toward making changes.
Though fans presumably let them have it with both barrels, the list of alterations announced for client update 9.0, which should arrive sometime in the next couple of days, seems like pretty small potatoes. Cosmetic changes like free-floating friends lists, UI changes, and re-sizable game icons hardly speak to the core gamer reservations about Origin. The in-game clock is at least a functional addition.
