Title: Mass Effect 2 for free
Post by: Venicius on January 07, 2017, 09:32:36 am
Origin is giving away Mass Effect 2 for anyone who will sell their soul to the origin launcher.

The origin launcher isn't bad at all. It's competent in every way, whilst steam is great in some aspects and terrible in others.

But hey! Free Mass Effect 2! If you have never played ME2, you really don't have an excuse now :) - It's great.

Yeah, shame it probably doesn't come with the dlc's.... but even without them, it's amazing.

Though... I really doubt anyone around here hasn't played it.

It, in fact, comes with every single DLC.

I grabbed this, but I need to finish Mass Effect first!  I haven't played since at lease two windows installs ago and don't know if I grabbed the save files, so I may be starting over.

No, it doesn't come with all DLCs, I don't know what gave people that idea.

So, I'm curious, given the timing of the giveaway:  Who's going to import their ME2 save into Frog Fractions 2?

So... does it come with DLCs or not? I just registered on Origin for this, so I don't really get the interface yet, but it seems to be the "Standard version" and both the Deluxe one and add-ons (including DLCs) are still buyable (no "free" or "assigned to your account" label), so...?

It comes only with the free DLC's like Project Hephaestus, Zaeed, Cerberus Network and some minor stuff. Only way to get other DLC's like Kasumi: Stolen Memory, Arrival, Project Overlord and Lair of the Shadow Broker is through Bioware points. And these don't seem to get any cheaper over the years. Perhas they will make another sale just before the Andromeda's release but it's just wishful thinking.

Ah. Now that's sad.

But it's free! :P

I think I had everything already from some ancient Steam sale, but I haven't even touched the game as of yet.  Might as well chuck it on my never-used Origin install too.

But I grabbed it and now have everything, including those $5 sunglasses DLCs. Iunno, maybe I just broke something.

Well, had it on Steam and now on Origin too.
