Mass Effect 3 requires Origin, not available on Steam.

/ 7 years ago

Dear god, not again.

Origin will be required to run all editions of Mass Effect 3 on PC, BioWare has revealed – including copies bought from shops.

Mass Effect 3 won’t be available on Steam, says community man Chris Priestly on the BioWare forum.

“During initial release, Mass Effect 3 will be available on Origin and a number of other third-party digital retailers, but not on Steam at this time, Steam has adopted a set of restrictive terms of service which limit how developers interact with customers to deliver patches and other downloadable content. We are intent on providing Mass Effect to players with the best possible experience no matter where they purchase or play their game, and are happy to partner with any download service that does not restrict our ability to connect directly with our consumers.”

While it’s not a outright no to Steam, it doesn’t look like you’ll be able to play Mass Effect 3 without Origin.

However, on a slightly brighter note, Mass Effect 3 on PC will require one-time online authentication before the single-player game can be played. Multiplayer will obviously require a constant internet connection.

There will be no limit to Mass Effect 3 game installations.
