REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

Star Wars: The Old Republic Does Not Require Origin

Posted on Wednesday, August 24 @ 16:35:45 Eastern by


Coming not too long after a public outcry against EA's Origin service, for its invasive, spyware-like policies in its EULA agreement, Senior Online Community Manager Stephen Reid for Star Wars: The Old Republic via the official forums has stated that, unlike Battlefield 3 for PC, it will not require players to download the client:

You are not required to use the Origin desktop client to download, patch or play the game client for Star Wars: The Old Republic.

There are still various consumer benefits to the client itself, but it's not required for The Old Republic.
