Dead Space free on Origin as the first title in EA's "On The House" promotion

Electronic Arts launches new free game promotion with Visceral Games' 2008 horror-action game.

Electronic Arts today made Visceral Games' 2008 horror-action game Dead Space free to download on Origin as part of its newly launched free game promotion called "On The House."

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."

Once you've claimed your free game, it's yours to keep forever, EA said. Why is EA doing this? "We're gamers, too. We appreciate you making Origin your gaming home...and besides, who doesn't like free stuff?" the company said.

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.
