So you'll finally be able to buy Bioware Points on Steam sale. Right?

This is actually great news. And maybe they'll also bring mass effect 3 to steam.
Great to hear their Jedi Fallen Order is also coming

Coming back home to Steam for a major name games company, that is good news.

That sounds like Electronic Arts actually

How about all games have a single huge lootbox you pay for up front that contains all the options, items, skins, unlocks etc? I'd pay for that!!

So in future, I don't need Origins to play Bioware games? Or do I still require Origins access like I need Uplay for Assassin's Creed?

Like for Ubisoft it seems. From Jedi: Fallen Order pre-order page: Incorporates 3rd-party DRM: EA on-line activation and Origin client software installation and background use required.

Requires 3rd-Party Account: EA Account (Supports Linking to Steam Account)
