Mass Effect Andromeda Will Not Be Available On Steam

Although at this point, did anyone expect anything different?

I don’t know why anyone would have expected anything different, given EA’s stance on PC games for a good long while now, and also given that Bioware’s previous game, Dragon Age Inquisition, also did not see a release on Steam; but if you were one of the people who was holding out in the hopes that Mass Effect Andromeda will be coming to Valve’s service, which remains the largest PC gaming distribution storefront, then your hopes have now officially been dashed.

Speaking on Twitter, Bioware’s Ian S. Frazier confirmed that the PC version of Mass Effect Andromeda will be available only on Origin; a disc version of the game was also mentioned, but presumably, it, too, will require activation via Origin, meaning that for PC gamers who want to play the next Mass Effect, there really is no escaping EA’s service.

Mass Effect Andromeda is due out on Xbox One, PS4 (with PS4 Pro enhancements and support), and PC some time this Spring.

    Yes, this is what’s making the PC industry so sickening. It began with Steam. Everyone wants Steam, but other corporations don’t want Steam. It doesn’t matter what the user’s want, it matters, ultimately, in controlling your product and having a large chunk of the industry in your pocket. That’s EA. Nobody wants EA. Any gamer will tell you they just want Steam. That’s where most of their achievements are, friends etc. But these f***ktards think, “hey, we can keep our franchises on our own services and screw everyone over! Yay!” We don’t want EA Origin, in fact, most of us feel sick about having to have it in order to play certain games at all.

    Probably because there’s a LOT of white people using Steam and well, we don’t support racism…

    Some screwed up headlines out there.

    Shame, well I know they are going to require you to download Origin with game…so I guess i shant play this…shame…I were looking forward to it.

    I dislike Origin but its better than Uplay. I’ll stick to Steam and GOG. Andromeda would probably been a no go for me anyway from what I can tell.
