It’s always good to be the bearer of good news, and this good news is 60 hours of awesome. On the house. Completely free. Nada. Zilch. Well what is it, pray tell? It’s BioWare’s last great masterpiece of course, Dragon Age: Origins, which is available right now to be grabbed on Origin for the princely sum of nothing.

You know what nothing gets you? A rumbling stomach, a parched throat, or a free copy of Dragon Age: Origins. You take your pick which one you want. When Dragon Age: Origins arrived back in 2009 it got the rare honor of grabbing a perfect 10/10 from GD, so this is one is definitely worth your time if you haven’t played it yet, particularly with Dragon Age: Inquisition just around the corner.

If you want to get Dragon Age: Origins for yourself then you need to get yourself on over to EA’s Origin store and click the ‘Get it now’ button splashed all over Dragon Age: Origins and it’ll automatically be added to your Origin library. You’ve got until October 14th to take advantage of EA’s On the House deal, so don’t delay if you’re interested in grabbing it. I should add it's yours for free forever once you grab it, you don't have to cram in 60 hours of dragon slaying into the next five days of your life. Oh, and Bejeweled 3 is free as well if that sort of thing takes your fancy, but I’ve seen many people become slaves to its addictive match 3 gameplay. You have been warned.

Grabbing either of these titles for free off of EA’s Origin Store? Are you intending on playing through both Dragon Age titles ahead of Dragon Age: Inquisitions launch on November 18th?

Everyone pisses on EA but EA is the only one giving away free games every month!

I am guessing EA is doing this so people who have never played the series play it and like it and pre-orders Inquisition

Thanks for answering! hehe. I though that the "You don't have to cram in 60 hours of dragon slaying into the next five days of your life" means I can only play the game for 60 hours. :D

This is the basic edition, so you would still have to buy the DLC you get in the Ultimate Edition. I got Ultimate Edition on Steam a few days ago, so I know how you feel.

They even released a free update for the Sims 4, instead of puting those things in a DLC, one can only hope they are trying to get back on the right path

Thank you both very much (and EA for this amazing deal). I jus started playing Mass effect so I didn't really want to start playing another game anytime soon. Dragon Age always looked like something I might like, but I never thought about buying it so this might give me the push to get into that series :)

I have one other question, I was just looking at the dlc's and this game has one big expansion (awakening) and a lot of other dlc's. Are any of them worth getting?
