Today’s Wednesday, which means we’re getting closer to a bunch of awesome deals on EA’s game depot. Almost time to kiss your spare time goodbye!
There are some tantalizing bargains on Origin right now since EA shaved off up to 75% on some titles; among them Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2, FIFA 17 and a boatload of others.
Classic titles have also received a price drop: the Crysis trilogy, Dead Space (now $1.99!), Dragon Age: Origins are all in the green zone at the moment.
The best value for your cash seems to be Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2, both of which will set you back 40 bucks. If your midichlorian count’s up, you could get yourself a copy of Star Wars Battlefront. You’d still have to fork over $15 since EA doesn’t fall victim to mind tricks. Believe me, I’ve tried.
Several Need for Speed titles are clocked under $5 at the moment and short of pirating the game, that’s about as cheap as it gets.
Other notable bargains are:
- Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 Deluxe Bundle – 50% off at $74.99
- Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2: Standard Edition – 75% off at $9.99
- Mirror’s Edge Catalyst – 60% off at $15.99
- Battlefield 4 Premium Edition – 60% off at $19.99
- The Sims 4 – 75% off at $9.99
- Mass Effect Trilogy – 50% off at $14.99
It’s not just their own titles that are being discounted: The Division is on sale with 30% off while Rainbow Six Siege is half price.
As an added bonus to their Black Friday campaign, EA announced that Origin users will now be able to gift games and create their own wishlists. Honestly, it’s about time they did this –the Steam kids were starting to crack jokes and flaunt their fulfilling wishlists.

To wishlist or gift a game on Origin, you only need to visit the product page and click on the drop-down menu attached to the Buy button. You can then select the option you want.
Your wishlist is accessible from the View menu but if you do that, you’ll probably disappoint yourself at the number of games you wanna play but can’t. So make sure the ones who love you see it first *wink wink*.
