Free Shooter Bonus for BF3 Preorders on Origin

Though the Origin Website lists a number of perks for preordering Battlefield 3 through Electronic Arts' online service, an unannounced bonus is also available for this advance commandment to the military shooter sequel, according to Ars Technica. They report "a friend" who preordered the game tells them he received a code from EA for a free copy of either Mass Effect 2, Dead Space 2 or Medal of Honor, and that this offer is only valid through the end of August. Update: Several of our readers have confirmed receiving this offer as well.

Well if anyone has a spare code they don't want or can't use let me know.

I got this offer for being in the bf3 alpha test.

Me too! Got Dead Space 2 and have already played through it once.

i guess it is safe to assume the game will ship in alpha phase.

Makes me wonder how many preorders they are getting, if the numbers are lower than expected so they toss this bonus in.

And why in the world wouldn't they announce this bonus? LOL, they should be publicizing it to get more PR.

The email stated that it was a reward for the Alpha testers.

I got this offer last week. I had 3 days to make my purchase or lose the bonus. I don't want any of those games though since I already have 2 of them. :/

If they allow a bonus of not having origin required or offer on steam that would catch my drift

I was so looking forward to BF3. And now...I'm just not sure anymore and even removed it from my must-haves, replacing it with Bastion.

Too many bullshit hoops to jump through to play a game. But we'll see. Still 3.5 months until release to make a decision.

I picked Mass Effect 2. Not because I liked Mass Effect 1 but because I didn't want to play Medal of Honor and I'm already playing Chronicles of Riddick so I didn't want another dark hallway crawler.
