6.25 FAQ-27 Does my computer always need an internet connection to run?

Last Update: 2/3/2015

No. You only need internet access for completing the node-locked licensing process (you can also license from a different computer, if your Origin computer does not have internet access). In addition, you need internet access to run Help:Check for Updates. This command allows you to check Origin's update center to see if a patch or updated Help file is available to your Origin.
