At least one user has reported receiving a free game in response to pre-ordering Battlefield 3 through EA’s own digital distribution platform, Origin.

The lucky gamer received an email notification of the deal, which he flagged with Ars Technica:

“As a special thank you for pre-ordering Battlefield 3 early at Origin, we’re offering you a bonus PC digital download game. Please apply the code below at the shopping cart to redeem one PC Digital version of one of our recommended shooter titles: Mass Effect 2, Dead Space 2 or Medal of Honor. The price will be reduced to $0 after applying the code at your shopping cart. Hurry—this offer is only good for the month of August, and is exclusive to Origin customers only.”

Origin pre-orders also net access to the game’s multiplayer beta along with the usual extras.

Battlefield 3 launches for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in late October. An Origin account will be required to play the PC version.
