Dead Space Free On Origin March 31, 2014

It looks like EA wants to finally get their users an excuse to download their Origin program, as they have decided to offer the original Dead Space for free .  I honestly consider the original Dead Space to be one of the best games of 2008, which is quite an impressive feat as it came up against other major titles that year including Resistance 2, Mirror’s Edge, and Gears of War 2.  EA threw a lot of weight behind marketing this game, releasing an animated graphic novel series online, and a full length animated feature called Dead Space: Downfall on DVD and Blu-Ray that was pretty great.  However, EA was actively including anti-consumer DRM in all of their PC games that year, and because of that, I consciously decided not to buy the game on PC, and instead picked up the console version of the game.

That said, once I did finally play the game, I found it incredibly enjoying.  In fact, I actually listed its opening in my list of the Best Game Openings Ever.  If you have a PC and an Origin account, you really should give the game a look!

You will need to download the Origin client to play the game.  If you don’t have it currently installed, you can install it here.  You will also need to create an Origin account, but if you already have an Origin account through EA (for games like Sim City, Battlefield 4 or Simpsons: Tapped Out), you will be able to use it to download the game.  The game should continue to be available to purchase free until the month of May, but once you do purchase it, it will be yours to play forever.
