EA hikes prices of its old games on Steam

American publisher Electronic Arts has increased the prices of many of its old games on Steam outside the US.

On Steam DB, you can see that games such as fantasy RPG Dragon Age: Origins - Ultimate Edition have seen an increase of £5 ($6.46), it used to cost £19.99 ($25.84). The Euro, Swiss Franc and Norweigian Krone prices have also been increased.

Reddit user MJuniorDC9 also showed an increase in costs for certain games. For example, SimCity 4: Deluxe Edition - which came out in 2003 - had its price jacked up from £9.99 ($12.91) to £17.99 ($23.25). However, not all currencies are affected for all titles.

In October 2019, rumours began to swirl that EA would bring its games back to Valve's storefront. A week later, the firm confirmed the rumour to be true.

Last week, the publisher revealed that it aims to launch 14 games in the next financial year.
