Mass Effect 2 is now free on EA Origin for a limited time

Nearly three months after Dungeon Keeper was made free on Origin, its time has come to an end and has been replaced by the standard edition of Mass Effect 2 as part of the "On the House" promotion.

Mass Effect 2 was originally released in 2010 for Xbox 360 and PC followed by a version for PlayStation 3 a year later. BioWare's action RPG was, on the whole, very well received with the PC version of Mass Effect 2 receiving a Metacritic score of 94/100.

By today's standards, the game has fairly modest system requirements, specifically:

  • OS: Windows XP SP3 / Windows Vista SP1 / Windows 7
  • CPU: 1.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo or equivalent
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce 6800 or higher or ATI Radeon X1600 Pro or higher
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Hard drive space: 15GB HDD

As always, being able to grab a game for free generally isn't a bad thing so make sure you grab your copy of Mass Effect 2 as soon as possible as it could disappear sooner rather than later. However, with its two immediate predecessors, Nox and Dungeon Keeper having racked up over six months tenure between them as the promotional title, one could question EA's enthusiasm for the "On the House" program.
