As part of the program, EA will offer up DLC and full games for free. It doesn't sound like EA is going to publish a schedule for when new games and content will be available, as the publisher said these deals can "appear and disappear at any time."

The most recent entry in the Dead Space series was 2013's Dead Space 3. After that game underperformed, it was reported that EA had killed off the series, but this later turned out to not be the case. Visceral Games is now working on an unannounced title in the Star Wars franchise.
