A few weeks ago EA announced that Dead Space Ignition and Dragon Age: Origins would join the EA Access Vault as free titles for subscribers. We didn’t know when they would appear on the service so today’s discovery came across as a surprise. This morning, when EA Access members booted up their consoles, they were greeted to both games appearing in Ready to install.
Dead Space Ignition is an interactive digital graphic novel melded with three tense hacking mini-games that takes place on the Sprawl, allowing players to witness the initial Necromorph outbreak before the events of Dead Space 2. Gamers guide engineers Franco and Sarah as they desperately race to stem the monstrous tide using a trio of quick-thinking tests. Each hacking challenge offers a fun and satisfying arcade experience that will test players with puzzles and twitch gameplay alike.
What can be said about Dragon Age: Origins that hasn’t already been said? The game is from the makers of Mass Effect, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and Baldur’s Gate. The survival of humanity rests in the hands of those chosen by fate. You are a Grey Warden, one of the last of an ancient order of guardians who have defended the lands throughout the centuries. Betrayed by a trusted general in a critical battle, you must hunt down the traitor and bring him to justice.
Both Dead Space Ignition and Dead Space Ignition and Dragon Age: Origins are fantastic games and represent some of the bigger titles available on EA Access. Hopefully EA will continue this trend with popular titles because, while we all love Zuma, it’s Dead Space 3 we really want!
