What better way to celebrate V-Day than with a horror game! Dead Space is now available for… FREE, on EA origins. Yea, sorry console gamers, but I think we got it for either free or super cheap with Xbox Gold at some point.
(You are Isaac Clarke, an engineer on the spacecraft USG Ishimura. You’re not a warrior. You’re not a soldier. You are, however, the last line of defense between the remaining living crew and deadly reanimated corpses. The undead have become Necromorphs; horrific zombie-alien hybrids that won’t succumb to traditional means. Fortunately, your offense is equally unique, as the high-powered mining tools at your disposal provide the means to fight against the threat.)
Dead Space is almost always listed on sites that have top 10 lists of the best horror games.
The EA Origins Dead Space game is 100% free, but I would download it now if you really want it because EA Origins is always adding new free games and there is no telling how long Dead Space will be available for.
This free option is from the On The House section of the app. A few FAQ if you have no idea what EA Origins is:
Are these just trials or demos?
Nope – you’re getting the full versions of the games or expansions that are currently On the House.
How long do I get to play the game?
Once you download anything from On the House, it’s yours to keep.
Why is Origin doing this?
Our goal is to provide a great gaming experience and a way to discover awesome new games. Having a game in your library, for free, is a fantastic way to see what Origin is all about.
