You have until the 29th of May to snag your free copy of Plants vs. Zombies.
Plants vs. Zombies may have already spawned a sequel and a weird third-person shooter spinoff, but EA isn't forgetting the game that kicked off the franchise, celebrating the original Plants vs. Zombies 5-year anniversary by giving it away for free. That's right, if you add Plants vs. Zombies: Game of the Year Edition to your Origin library before May 29, you'll unlock it permanently, for free.
To claim the game, simply go to the Official origin website or boot up your Origin client. The game, which usually costs $5, has been made free as part of Origin's "On The House" program, in which select titles are made free for everyone to add to their libraries for a short period of time. Previously, we saw Dead Space kickstart the program.
"There's no catch," EA explained when it launched the On The House program. "Grab full games, expansions and more at absolutely no cost. Just make sure to act fast because On the House specials can appear and disappear at any time."
Some would say that the "catch" is that you have to download and install EA's Origin client, but to be fair, it has been steadily improving since it launched back in 2011. And hey, who's going to complain about a free game?
