There’s currently a giant sale on at Amazon UK, with several EA games going for the price of a cup of coffee or two (thanks to Eurogamer for the heads up about the sale!)
Naturally, there’s a couple of catches: firstly, these prices are available for today and today only.
Secondly, the games are all digital download codes that require an Origin account to redeem and play.
Lastly, you have to be located in the United Kingdom in order to make a purchase.
The cheapest game on sale is the famously controversial Star Wars Battlefront II, with the Standard Edition going for just £3.99. That’s a low price to pay to get a sense of pride and accomplishment for yourself.
The Sims 4 and many of its expansion packs are also on sale, with the base game going for a fairly decent £12.99.
Some of the Game Packs, including Parenthood and Vampires, are going for around £13.99 with a few 50p differences here and there. It’s not the biggest discount, seeing as they usually retail for £17.99, but if you’re planning on buying plenty of Game Packs then it’ll add up eventually.
Expansion Packs, including Get Famous and Seasons, are going for around £17.99 instead of the usual £34.99. That’s a considerably better deal than the Game Packs, so if you’ve been looking to add some real oomph to your Sims 4 game, now may be the time.
The exception to the Expansion Pack rule is the recently released Island Living, which is going for £26.99. Personally, I think £26.99 is a good price for what the pack contains, but if you’re not super into Sims 4, mermaids, or island culture, you’d probably be better off waiting for a bigger price drop.
Dragon Age: Inquisition – Game of the Year Edition is also on sale, going for just £7.99. As someone who’s extremely into Dragon Age, I can confirm that £7.99 is a steal for the GOTY edition.
The GOTY edition includes all the game’s main DLC, including Jaws of Hakkon, The Descent, and Trespasser, with the latter including the real ending to Dragon Age: Inquisition. It also has a Deluxe Upgrade pack which gives you the Spoils of the Avvar and Spoils of the Qunari items.
Dragon Age 2 is also on sale for £2.99. Even though it’s often considered the worst instalment in the Dragon Age series thanks to recycled assets and questionable plots, 2 is still an incredibly good play, and £2.99 is an incredibly good deal.
While Dragon Age: Origins isn’t up for sale, its standalone DLC Dragon Age: Origins: Awakening is, and it’s going for just £3.99. The Amazon reviews for Awakening claim that something might be wrong with the code, though, so be wary.
