Origin update improves menus, video broadcast support

New features for powerful 64-bit PCs

EA will release an update for Origin "in the weeks to come', that will improve its menu systems and introduced enhanced features for video archiving and high-end 64-bit PCs.


The update, version 9.2.1, will be released today for those who've opted into beta testing on PC (tomorrow on Mac), with a general release planning in the coming weeks.

EA detailed the update with the following statement:

"After downloading this update, you'll notice that we've revamped the look and feel of the Application Settings menu. For PC users, if you've been broadcasting your gameplay, you'll appreciate the new ability to auto-archive your broadcasts.

"For you power gamers with muscular 64-bit systems on either PC or Mac, the new multilauncher will give you additional options for taking advantage of your hardware when starting up supported games.

"Finally, you can now keep track of all the achievements you've completed in Battlefield 3, Mass Effect 3, and Dead Space 3 on your Origin profile page. Start playing those games after updating Origin, and watch your Origin Point total (displayed underneath your name) increase by completing their achievements."
