[DEAL] Get Plants vs. Zombies FREE for PC and Mac for a limited time

Electronics Arts has recently begun an "On the House" initiative, offering premium PC games free of charge through their Origin games service for a limited time. The latest games to be treated to this offer are Battlefield 3 and Plants vs. Zombies. EA is also offering The Game of the Year edition of the original Plants vs. Zombies for free on Origin through June 16, and it is free on both PCs and Macs.

In Plants vs. Zombies, a mob of fun-loving zombies Zombies are invading your home, and the only defense is your arsenal of plants. Armed with 49 zombie-zapping plants like peashooters and cherry bombs, you’ll need to think fast and plant faster to stop 26 types of zombies dead in their tracks. Obstacles like a setting sun, creeping fog and a swimming pool add to the challenge, and with five game modes to dig into, the fun never dies!

Conquer all 50 levels and achieve new bonus content like the ability to make your own zombies. Plants vs. Zombies usually costs $4.99 and will revert back to its original price on June 16.

“Even if you’re not ready to download it yet, just add it to your Origin game library,” the company’s Craig Harris said in the announcement. “Once you do that it’s all yours for keeps and you can install it whenever you want.”

Between these two offerings and the recent giveaway for the original Dead Space, the method to EA’s madness is becoming clear. These free games are older titles that have since been supplanted by sequels such as Battlefield 4 and Plants vs. Zombies 2. EA’s no doubt hoping that a few free tastes will whet your appetite for more, perhaps encouraging you to buy the sequel or maybe a dash or two of downloadable content for the free game. Plus, you’ll need to install the Origin gaming service on your PC to use the free games - another win for EA.

It’s a pretty clever way to put older games to good use, if you ask me. But more importantly for you, free games! Sure, it’s getting a bit grey around the edges, but Battlefield 3 is still no slouch. Head over to Origin’s On the House page to claim the games while you can.
