Game publisher Electronic Arts (EA) will begin rolling out a new app for Windows users which will replace Origin, two years after announcing its intention to replace its Origin PC client.
The publisher claims that the app is the fastest and lightest PC client yet.
Having just completed its beta phase, the new app has promised a streamlined design and easier navigation by EA. The app will allow users to connect their EA accounts to platforms like Steam, Xbox and PlayStation.
A special individual EA ID will make users distinguishable by their pals as well.
EA stated in its blog, that it will soon invite all Origin users to switch to the new app which will have transferred all user data including the friends list. The new app client is only available to Windows users currently.
