Just a quick public service announcement to let the three of you haven’t played it yet that Mass Effect 2 has become the latest game to be available free on Origin via EA’s On The House deals.

With Mass Effect Andromeda just around the corner, it’s probably the perfect time to catch up with Shepard and co. It’s also pretty widely regarded as the best in the series and probably one of the finest sci-fi RPGs of all time.

Way back in the mists of time, 2010 to be precise, GD’s own Chris Barraclough said “the hugely enjoyable original has been overhauled and improved in some key areas and the result is Mass Effect 2 is one of the most addictive and enthralling gaming experiences of recent memory.” It’s fair to say he was probably right. 

To redeem your copy just head over to Origin and click ‘Get It Now’. Simple.

Just in case you missed the Mass Effect Andromeda release date announcement, BioWare has said it’s coming to North America on March 21st and Europe on March 23rd. We also got treated to a brand spanking new Mass Effect Andromeda trailer running on a GeForce GTX 1080.
