Yes You must be on line to start Origin but you then get the chance to go offline after you login. I have my PC remember Name and Password for this game (I never do usually but did it for this game) So I open Origin, the game connect itself to EA, then I get the choice to go offline to play. Start the geme and it says you are offline, all day if you wish until You turn off your computer. Each time you restart your machine , then you must reconnect to EA site but after that, it is up to you to stay online or not
Yes you must connect to internet first then login for Origin after, it is as I said.
