EA's Origin digital distribution client is receiving an overhaul. Currently available to test in beta form, it boasts a softer, sleeker look over the current client, which, while nice, doesn't come off quite as professional.

The new design isn't just for aesthetic purposes, either; it's more functional, too. The store and library are more natural to navigate between, download progress is now more readily displayed, and the store is much more intuitive to browse, among other changes.

If you want to get it on it early, go to Origin > Application Settings > General. Then, check "Update to beta version when available" and reboot the client.
