Hello there @Avesteris ,

 

The easiest way to link your Steam Account is by logging in on the EA Helps website and then signing in through Steam.

 

Here's How:

1. Navigate to the EA Help Website.

2. Click log in at the top right of the page. (If you are already signed in, sign out and then click log in)

3. When it pops up with the: enter your login credentials, click Steam at the very bottom. 

4. Login with your Steam Credentials and then you are all set!

 

Happy Gaming and Stay Safe!

@The_other_Rare Hi,

Thanks for solution, it seemed to work, but I still cannot play SW Squadrons via Steam, it ask me to buy it on Steam even though after receiving email that accounts are linked. Am I missing something?

Hey, no problem at all. So just for clarification, do you own the game on Steam or on Origin? Because if you own the game on Origin you should just be able to download it through your Game Library and then launch it through there.

@The_other_RareYes I do own it on the Origin, I bought it yesterday, like 18h ago. I also checked the other games I own on the Origin, and they are also unavailable to play through Steam.

What happens when you try to launch your game through Origin?

@Avesteris 

So what is the issue you are having with Steam? Because if you don't own the Game on Steam you wouldn't be able to play it through that platform.

So what's the point of linking both accounts? I was hopping it can be detected in the steam so I can use the same features what steam gives when you own the game.

@Avesteris 

And what features were you hoping to have access to by linking your Steam and EA Account if you don't mind me asking?
