Is there anyway to change my in-game name, not entirely happy with showing my real name, as per my account name.

Yup, under Basic Information you should be able to edit your ID, and this should update your in-game name if you play on PC.

In your Origin account you can decide what is shown in the My Account ---> About me on the Site

And Account and Privacy on the Origin App

Hey Stuart,

 

Your Origin ID is your in-game name for many newer EA titles.

If you do not like your current Origin ID, you can change it (once every 7 days) here: http://www.origin.com/change-id

 

It can take a few minutes once you change it for it to cascade through the various services, so a good rule of thumb is to ensure you log out of any persistent web-logins as well as restart your Origin client.

Is this still true?  I don't see any way to do that, and following the provided link simply sent me to the edit profile screen.

Well, let's say someone is playing from Steam? Which name would appear on the game? Steam or Origin?
