"If you find yourself with a disabled account, please note that you can still play EA games in single-player mode," the publisher stated on its site. "For PC games you will need to enable Origin's offline mode to play games with a disabled account. Go to the settings tab in Origin (the gear icon) and select Go Offline."

Previously, any users suspended or banned for misconduct in EA multiplayer games or forums were also suspended from access to their single-player games.

In August last year, EA changed Origin's End-User License Agreement (EULA) after it sparked privacy concerns among users.
