EA’s online store, Origin, have recently announced a new service they are offering to their customers. The are calling it ‘On the House‘ and this new feature allows customers to claim a selected free game or downloadable content (DLC) to download. Unlike Steam’s Free-to-Play weekends where they release a game to download and play for a weekend, Origin’s On the House games remain in your Game Library for good and you are able to download and play however many times you wish. The game is yours!
Origin haven’t released any information on how or when these games will be updated but have said that games ‘can appear and disappear at any time’. So be sure to act fast if something comes along that catches your eye. The game which is currently free is the first entry in EA’s successful Dead Space series which is a single-player, action survival horror title set in space.
