If you are playing any of our games using the legacy version of Origin you may have seen this notification on Origin already, but just in case we wanted to share it here as well:
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.
If you don’t upgrade to the current version of Origin by then, you will keep all of your purchases, 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. Origin requires Windows 7 or higher, or macOS X Mavericks (10.9) or higher – check this link for more details.
