2009 was the year that gamers everywhere were introduced to the kingdom of Ferelden, and the menace called the Darkspawn in the game Dragon Age: Origins. Created by the same studio that made Mass Effect, Origins took a medieval take on a political-centric game. Players had to build up karma with companions, NPCs, and the different aspects of the kingdom while trying to find a solution to an ancient enemy that had not been heard of in four centuries.
With Dragon Age: Inquisition right around the corner, EA is happily trying to remind people why they loved the series. To that extent, the company is giving away Dragon Age: Origins for free on the PC as part of their ‘On The House’ promotion. Download it before October 14th to add it permanently to your Origins library.
Note that you have to have an Origins account to add it to your library. There’s no strings attached, just sign up using your e-mail, and once you do, voila! Another game on your PC that has to wait because you spent far too much in the Steam Summer Sale!
