Mass Effect 2 is free on PC right now

Electronic Arts is giving away Mass Effect 2 for free on PC at the moment through its Origin platform.

The outstanding RPG is currently free as part of EA’s ‘On The House’ promotion, which has given away plenty of free titles in the past.

You can claim your copy here right now and it’ll be yours to keep forever. No strings attached. You will need an Origin account, though.

This is the standard version of Bioware’s epic and doesn’t include any of the previously released downloadable content. They’re worth snapping up, though, adding an extra layer of depth to the sci-fi universe.
