The lights are on
Update: EA has announced its new "On the House" program that will offer free games from time to time. Dead Space is the first of the these titles.
EA warns that "On the House" offers, which will include games and expansions, will appear and disappear without notice. If you see one pop up, don't hesitate.
We’re not sure if this is an error or intent, but Dead Space is free right now on EA’s Origin store. We went through the process of redeeming the 100 percent off, and it works.
In case this is an accident, we suggest moving quickly. You can get your free copy of Visceral’s frightful space survival title here. The page says the offer is good until May 8, 2014, but we wouldn't procrastinate.
