EA is all set to revamp its Origin platform for the better. The company is seeing strides from companies such as Steam and Epic Games Store and really wants to be part of the cake as well. So, in order to actually make something more than just a gaming client, the company is focusing on making an all-in-one client. they would be calling it the Origin 2.0, for now.
In an article on the German Website, ComputerBase.de, they explain how the company aims to go for this. Right now, both the platforms will coexist as the Origin 2.0 is currently in Beta. The company has really taken user feedback into account to make something for the users, by the users. In an effort to do that, they have launched a closed-Beta program. What this would mean is that users with EA accounts would sign up. Then, out of those people, selected users would be a part of the Closed Beta. This would ensure quality is top notch. They must have a way to filter out which users to go for. In the beginning, Origin Access Premier member would be given preference with more users added with time.
According to the company, they mention in this quote below that they want an all-in-one platform which would function well and it would function fast: something Gamers want. So they want feedback from the gamers themselves.
We hope that you will tell us the things you like, the things you don’t like, and everything else that you notice, so that we can create a PC gaming platform that really suits you.
There is still no certain date when Origin 2.0 would be launched. Currently, it is just in a very early Beta mode and would take some time to get to the standard.
