Welcome to Origin

Origin helps make gaming better. With it, you can connect with the games you love and discover more games you’ll "accidentally" play until 4am.

Chat with friends, broadcast your gameplay, and show off achievements so everyone will know how awesome you are. Get your hands on exclusive deals and bonus content from some of the world’s best video game publishers. It’s all just a few clicks away.


Wherever you are, all you have to do is sign in to have your whole game library at your fingertips. Enjoy your favorite games from your gaming rig at home or anywhere else you play (we won’t tell if it’s at work). And with cloud storage, all those long hours of gaming you snuck in at the office won’t go to waste—you can pick up right where you left off.


Find your friends, see which games they play, and invite them into the game you’re playing. With Origin for PC, you can also broadcast your gameplay easily—show off your most glorious run, game-winning goal, and victory dance—for gamers around the world to watch.


Whether you want to be an elite soldier, a superstar soccer player, or an everyday guy trying to protect your garden against zombies, there’s something for everyone. Whatever you’re up to—heated late night tournaments, lazy Saturdays foraying into the depths of space, and everything in between—gaming just makes everything better.
