Free Games, On the House

Origin's new On the House program is live. On the House is a great way to start or add to your Game Library with awesome games and great content, for free. No catch—On the House games are just that, full versions that cost you nothing.

We’re kicking off On the House with a free copy of Dead Space for all Origin users. If you haven’t played the game yet, Dead Space is a fantastic sci-fi third-person shooter with an atmosphere of visceral horror. If you’ve been holding back from picking it up, now’s your chance to play it.

It’s simple to get: Click "Get it Now" from the On the House page, and it’ll be added to your My Games library where it’s yours forever. You can then download it to your computer whenever you want.

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.

Keep checking the On the House page for updates -- On the House games are free for a limited time only, so be sure to grab them while you can.
