BioWare Sequel Celebration: Dragon Age II Owners Get Mass Effect 2 PC for Free!


Extending an olive branch to angry PC gamers still steaming over the ‘consolization’ of Dragon Age II — or maybe they’re just in a really happy mood! — BioWare has kicked off a ‘Sequel Celebration’ promotion offering gamers a free digital copy of Mass Effect 2 for PC with the purchase of Dragon Age II.

If you’ve already purchased Dragon Age II, fear not. If you kept your Online Pass code like a good little gamer, you can use it to generate a code to download Mass Effect 2 (minus The Cerberus Network DLC portal – you have to pay the extra $15 if you want it) from EA’s online store. And if you lost or threw away your Online Pass, there are steps to take to have the system check that you already registered the code.

Only the PC version of Mass Effect 2 is available in this offer, but it doesn’t matter which version of Dragon Age II you buy/own. As long as you have an Online Pass code, you can register for the free game. I just used the Online Pass from my PS3 version of Dragon Age II and got a redemption code with no issues. Now I just have to figure out what to do with the game, because I doubt my PC will run it. If it’s a transferable code (which I highly doubt it is), maybe I’ll run a quick giveaway.

This offer will be available through April 30th. For steps to redeem your free copy, click here.
