Origins is the first game in the Dragon Age series, having launched on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC back in 2009. It was very well-received upon its release, earning a 9.5 in GameSpot's review thanks to its enjoyable combat and excellent story.
This free copy of Origins comes in time to give you just over a month to play it before the arrival of Inquisition, the third game in the Dragon Age series. That game brings back a major aspect of combat that was abandoned in Dragon Age II, the tactical view. It will also feature a way of importing your choices from the first two games, though you won't do so by importing a save file (so don't worry if you play Origins on PC and Inquisition on consoles).
Some will bemoan needing to use Origin, EA's Steam-like digital platform, but this is a free game (regularly priced at $20) with no strings attached. Previously, we've seen games like Dead Space and Wing Commander III given away, and you can still get the most recent On the House game--Bejeweled 3--for free right now.
The offer on Origins last only a week, so if you're interested, be sure to claim your copy before October 14. Doing so will permanently add it to your Origin library.
