Those who have not yet pre-ordered the PC version of BioWare RPG sequel Mass Effect 3 have been offered a free copy of DICE shooter Battlefield 3 as an extra incentive to do so.
Two conditions apply, however. Firstly, you have to live in the US. Secondly, you have to buy the game through EA's online content portal Origin.
The deal is all the sweeter when you consider that Battlefield 3 remains a financially viable product – in this week's UK charts EA's game holds a higher position than Activision's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
Sadly there's no sign yet of the deal being offered in Europe.
Mass Effect 3 will be released in the UK on March 9th.
