Mixed reviews be damned? If you're a Mass Effect fan and you've decided that you can live with the various quirks of Mass Effect: Andromeda , then you can score some heavy discount this weekend on the PC Origin key of BioWare's (and EA's) latest.
Current Best Mass Effect Andromeda PC Deals
- Mass Effect Andromeda (Origin Key) - $43.99 at GMG (27% off)
- Mass Effect Andromeda (Origin Key) - $49.99 at DLGamer (17% off)
- Mass Effect Andromeda + $25 eGift Card (PC) - $59.98 at Dell (42% bonus)
The deals are arriving in multiple forms, both in digital and "physical" copies. At digital retailers GMG and DLGamer, you'll be able to pick up the Origin key at up to a giant 27% off. GMG is currently selling Mass Effect: Andromeda for as low as $42.99, while DLGamer has the game for $49.99. Price discrepancy at DLGamer will
still bring you the pre-order bonus items (which are still available as of writing) - so your call if that's worth the additional $7 price tag. Most people will probably agree the in-game Deep Space Explorer Armor, Nomad skin, and Multiplayer Booster Pack aren't worth it at that price difference.
If you're more in for a physical copy, or if you want the largest cash incentive on the table, there's Dell Home's $25 bonus gift card offer. You are paying full price for the game, but 10 - 20 days after it's shipped Dell will email you a $25 eGift Card (more of a gift code actually). The bonus is worth about 42% the value of the game itself and effectively makes it a $35 purchase.
The gift card at Dell should have a small asterisk by it. It's technically a promotional gift card, so it carries a 90-day expiration to it after issued. That's kind of weak sauce, but if you use it within the allotted time, it'll work on anything sold at Dell including more upcoming Triple-A titles.
Note that being an EA Origin title, the "physical" copy being sold at Dell is actually just a box with the Origin game code inside without a DVD copy. So unless you're a frequent shopper at Dell or you don't mind waiting for the shipping time frame, we honestly don't see too many upsides in picking up this particular Mass Effect: Andromeda deal.
