As I've said before, I don't know whether to trust Origin
as people used to say it contained spyware/scanned your computer.
EA might have changed it by now (or not)
but I'll have to find out.
But if you don't care either way,
or you already willingly use Origin,
or if you just want to redeem it now and investigate later,
go to Origin's "On The House" page to add it to your Origin game library.
I don't know how long the offer will last,
could be a month, could be a day, no idea.
But once you redeem it, it's yours.https://www.origin.com/gbr/en-us/store/free-games/on-the-houseWARNING:
Mass Effect 2 contains swearing, blood/gore, violence, inappropriate themes, etc.
If you're too young, you may want to redeem it
for free and then check it out when you're older.
I'm forced to use Origin because I have BF3 on PC,
(hopefully the NSA doesn't have my files by now,
I've heard of a way to bypass Origin but I'm not sure
if it's safe (from a "no virus" point of view)
or from a "has anyone ever been banned for bypassing Origin"
Well, I redeemed the game and when I actually have time
(free time? what is this dark magic?
then I'll investigate that method and whether Origin still has spyware or not.
(Or if it ever did.)
It's nice we're getting all these free games.
Mass Effect 2 isn't even that old,
and it's been critically acclaimed too.
