EA Steam Return Hint

A tweet from Electronic Arts adds fuel, or at least steam, to the recent indications that EA Games will be making a return to Steam (thanks DSOGaming). In a bygone time Electronic Arts games were sold on Steam, but that ended when EA launched Origin as their own online store back in 2011. The new tweet offers a visual hint at the return, showing an EA mug emitting wisps of steam. This seems like a pretty straightforward clue, though it could just mean that they really like coffee.

Wasn't the main [stated, at least] reason they pulled out back in the day the inability to sell DLC directly, rather than going via Steam and give Valve a cut? Did something change in that regard lately?

Sort of. Steam changed their rules so that any DLC for a game sold on steam must also be able to be bought on steam. They did not care if you could get it elsewhere as well just as long as a user could get it on steam too. Crysis 3 I think was the first to run afoul of the rule change.

Makes sense. So you don't have to go to different places to get your game then get the DLC. Like you had to with Mass Effect 2. DAO at least downloaded them in game.
