Mass Effect 2 for PC is free right now through Electronic Arts’s On the House promotion. The free game can be downloaded through EA’s Origin service.
This is the standard edition of the game, and does not come with any downloadable content. All add-ons must be bought using Bioware Points, which are $10 for 800 points and $20 for 1600 points, and redeemed through Bioware’s website. The deluxe edition of Mass Effect 2 is available for $29.99, or $4.99 per month through Origin Access
On the House is an EA promotion where the company has been giving away a free game every few months. Past games include Dragon Age: Origins, Peggle, Battlefield 3, Dead Space, and Plants vs. Zombies: Game of the Year Edition. Last month, Mass Effect 2 was free for a few hours due to a price error.
The newest entry in the series, Mass Effect: Andromeda, was recently shown off at Nvidia’s CES keynote this week. The presentation gave a detailed look into the game’s skill trees and profile menus, alongside a bit of gameplay. Mass Effect: Andromeda is scheduled to release March 21, 2017.
