EA is in the headlines again today, but this time it’s not for their lackluster business practices.
Digital distribution service Origin has had a major change imposed for users with suspended accounts.
According to their official website, banned users have had access to purchased single player content since December 15, 2011. In order for one to access their content, they must simply activate Origin’s offline mode.
It’s fairly popular within PC gaming circles to gripe about Origin, especially when digital distribution competitor Steam is seemingly more popular platform for downloading games. Allowing users access to purchased content while suspended is a step in the right direction for Origin.
EA’s reputation has been tarnished in light of recent events.
Perhaps these new improvements in player relations on Origin are to make up for being named The Consumerist‘s “Worst Company in America 2012.”
The heat over the Mass Effect 3 ending surely didn’t help either.
