Lutris game manager adds support for Origin integration

By - | Views: 19,509

The free and open source game manager Lutris continues expanding the stores it supports installing games from, with Origin now being added into the mix. Currently Lutris supports installing games (both native Linux builds and Windows games with Wine) for Humble Bundle, GOG, Steam, Epic Games and Emulators so adding Origin sounds like a good idea.

No new release is actually out with it yet, as the code has just been added into the current development area on GitHub. Lead dev Mathieu Comandon teased it on Twitter: "Origin integration for Lutris is now available on the development branch!".

Nice, I hope they are able to add Amazon Games some day, since that's currently not possible to use on Linux.

maybe it's a stupid question, but... what exactly does integration mean?

Will it be able to have a single install of origin and launch the various games using game specific configurations?

It means you can view, install and launch your Origin games directly from Lutris, it will open Origin in the background if the game needs it open, and should shut it down when you exit the game, like it does with Steam.
How's the itch.io integration coming along?
very great news, that EA Origin is now integrated in lutris. they should also integrate itch.io and Amazon Prime Gaming in the future and also an Steam Deck optimized UI would be fine

I assume this is done similar to the Epic integration where it installs the Origin client in Wine. I've recently tried Origin to try and play Dragon Age Inquisition, which came with Prime. Game itself runs great, but Origin took a few restarts because it simply wouldn't complete its task. May have to give this a try since Prime also gave Star Wars Fallen Order and Squadrons. Seems like EA is trying to pull more people into Origin directly.

The few times I have tried to run Linux as my only gaming platform, it's almost always been Origin that stood in my way. I have high hopes for this to make running Origin games easy.

Would be nice. Now you have to do some fiddling to get your Prime games in the Twitch App. I wonder if there is a know api that can be used for it directly.
There's also a full Flatpak integration in-progress, which I'm super hyped about, though that one isn't done yet. I think it was targeted for 5.10 as well, but it looks like they've moved it down.

Are there any similar apps made with Qt? This modern GTK interface looks completely alien in KDE and I find it very inconvenient as well.
