With the announcement of the release date for Mass Effect: Andromeda, EA has decided to celebrate with another free game release on the Origin platform.

From today you will be able to download what is widely considered to be the best game in the original Mass Effect trilogy, Mass Effect 2.

The standard edition of Mass Effect 2 is now available to download for free on Origin as part of their On the House offering, which does mean that you get the game, however, you get none of the extra content that you would get with the Deluxe Edition.

On top of that, it will only be available for no cost for a limited time.

Thankfully, you do get the game forever. To grab it simply head over to the Origin store and click the “Add to my library button”, then you are ready to fight the Reapers.

You can also grab the full trilogy (Mass Effect 1, 2, and 3) for half-off.
