In a rather obvious attempt to court a more demanding PC gaming crowd, EA's Origin service today announced it has signed up eleven new publishers for its online marketplace. Among them are CD Projekt, of The Witcher fame, and Paradox Interactive, of hardcore historical strategy game fame.

Joining them will be Trion Worlds, Robot Entertainment, Freebird Games, Recoil Games, Autumn Games, 1C Company, inXile entertainment, Core Learning Ltd. and N3V Games.

Trion's Rift will be the first game from these publishers to be made available.
