EA’s next free game giveaway has begun on Origin, and this is a particularly good one.
Mass Effect 2 is now free through the On the House promotion. You can claim it here right now. As with past freebies, you’ll be able to keep it permanently. This is the standard edition of the game and doesn’t include any of the DLC, some of which (like Lair of the Shadow Broker) is well worth a look.
If you’re an EA or Origin Access member, you were already able to play Mass Effect 2 for free. Even for those people, this is still worth claiming to make it a permanent part of your Origin library.
BioWare and EA announced this week that the next Mass Effect game, Andromeda, launches on March 21. It also released a new gameplay video showing off combat on a volcanic planet.
