Learn how to upgrade your operating system (OS) on Mac and PC to enjoy all the features that the Origin client has to offer.

Are you playing your favorite EA games on PC? The EA app is now available for Windows – download it here.

To play our games and take advantage of all of the benefits that Origin has to offer, including shopping in the Origin Store, using the social features, and playing with Origin In-Game, you can upgrade to the most recent version of Origin.


To use Origin on PC, you’ll need to meet the minimum requirement of Windows 8. However, for the best experience, we recommend Windows 10.

Enjoy all of Origin’s features on macOS X Mavericks 10.9 or higher. We recommend that you always use the latest version of macOS available for your Mac.

What happened to the legacy version of Origin?

To keep up with the most recent technology and operating systems available on PC and Mac, the legacy version of Origin is going away on January 14, 2020.

You will keep all of your purchases if you don’t upgrade by then, but you won’t be able to use them. Upgrade now to the minimum requirements for your operating system and Origin to continue playing your games.

If you’re on Windows 8+, you should be able to run the newest version of Origin. But if your graphics card is older, it might not meet the requirements for Origin or your games.

To be able to play your games, you can upgrade to a new graphics card.
