With each passing year, the Christmas period often leaves gamers spoilt for choice as publishers run a range of enticing discounts across an array of titles. And so, hot on the heels of Valve’s expansive Steam sale, EA has kicked off its own promotion on Origin, which slashes the asking prices of a hoard of software including the likes of Dragon Age: Inquisition, FIFA 15 and the wonderful yet underplayed RPG gem, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.
Here’s the full list of those titles in question, which even include notable third-party titles such as Square Enix’s recent Tomb Raider reboot. These promotions will run from today through until January 6.
Battlefield 3 — $1
Battlefield 4 — $15
Dragon Age: Inquisition — $40
FIFA 15 — $40
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning — $5
Metro Last Light — $20
Need for Speed Rivals — $15
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare — $7.50
The Sims 4 — $30
SimCity — $10
Titanfall — $10
Tomb Raider — $10
Without doubt, Dragon Age: Inquisition is the most eye-catching of the bunch, given the critical acclaim that was lauded upon BioWare’s title when it roared on to the scene earlier this year. That said, there are still some great games on the list that offer players a second chance if you didn’t get the opportunity to pick it up the first time around, including Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall ($10) along with Need for Speed: Rivals (down to $15).
After all, what’s Christmas without kicking back and playing some video games while you recover from that inevitable food coma?
