EA ends free Battlefield 3 offer with ME3 Origin pre-order early
Earlier this week, EA was offering Battlefield 3 as a free digital download to those who pre-ordered Mass Effect 3 through the firm’s Origin service. The offer wasn’t supposed to expire until March 5, but it looks as though EA ended the deal a bit early, around 2:00 PM EST on February 16 to be exact. Those who got in on the deal before its early demise will receive a code to download the shooter via email by by March 8, which two days after Mass Effect 3 launches in the US. Thanks, Joystiq.
