The Origin New Year’s Resolution Revolution

It’s the end of the year. This is the time where we take a moment and look back at all the things we could have been doing, and vow to do them better next year. You know, New Year’s Resolutions.

But keeping New Year’s Resolutions is hard, right? Not if you make the right resolution it’s not.

There were some absolutely fantastic games released this year and you may have told yourself, “I’m totally going to play that one.” And then before you know it, another fantastic game comes out. And another. And it’s soon clear that you’ve run out of time for that first game you really wanted to play.

So make your New Year’s Resolution one you can keep. “I vow to play more games.” We’re going to help make it stick.

Starting December 23rd and all the way until January 7th, nearly the entire Origin store will be on sale. Franchises like Battlefield, Need for Speed, The Sims and SimCity will have big discounts so you can knock out those games and take pride that you’ve kept a New Year’s Resolution in 2014.
