Electronic Arts' recently launched digital distribution platform Origin will soon offer PC titles from outside publishers including Warner Bros. Interactive, THQ and Capcom, the company announced today. Titles like WB's Batman: Arkham City, and THQ's Saints Row: The Third will be added to the service some time in November, EA said today, alongside undisclosed "top new releases" from the publishers. "We are very pleased to partner with EA and have Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment's key PC titles available on Origin," WB senior VP for digital games Greg Ballard said in a statement. "In growing our digital offerings for consumers we want to give fans increased access to critically acclaimed titles such as Batman: Arkham City." EA has been hinting that third-party content would be joining EA's Origin offerings since at least July, and in September promised that third-party content would be coming to Origin 'very soon. Origin now claims over 6 million registered users who can currently download a library of over 100 of EA's PC titles. By contrast, Valve's segment-leading PC game download service Steam boasted over 35 million active users choosing from 1,800 titles as of September.
