Anyone who's been around for Battlefield 4, Need For Speed: Rivals, and Titanfall knows the score by now. Dragon Age: Inquisition DD is on the Mexican store (£27.51 for us Brits).

Step 1. Download Hola Unblocker for Google Chrome, and choose a Mexican proxy.

Step 2. With the proxy active, go to the Dragon Age page, and add to basket. Go to your basket, and proceed to checkout.

Step 3. Once here, turn off Hola, so you're back to the US/UK version (change your language to English at the bottom if you want). Sign in, and the game will still be in your basket at the reduced price.

Step 4. Checkout with PayPal.


Origin offer their Great Game Guarantee, so if it turns out to be another Dragon Age 2, then you can get a refund.



6 month later edit: There might be some issues paying by PayPal now, but some people have apparently got it to work with credit card

Edit 2: Time until it unlocks in Hong Kong



Use a VPN like explained here to unlock it.

Thanks for the tip :)

didn't get an error on the website, but I got no e-mail from paypal.
In my origin order history, the status is 'failed'.
Don't know what would cause that, used paypal a few times on origin already

When I click the link it opens my own country Origin (spanish). ;_;
That's why you need to use Hola Unblocker, or a VPN.

Hmm... Not sure, it went through fine for me.

I want the game very much but I'm waiting for the inevitable $40 PC price after one week on Amazon. Or a Super Dragon Age pack on amazon for $50 which will give me DA II dlc since I got all of DA1 dlc/expansion + DA2 with that emporium for $7.

Anyone jump on this deal for $45 for the digital deluxe package or think it will be cheaper closer to release date?

I'd be highly surprised if you found anything as cheap around launch. This is $25 bucks cheaper, even if GMG had a 25% off that worked it will still cost you 52 bucks plus tax. this is over 35% off.

Standard edition is 60$ and this is deluxe. Also not sure from where you are referring to that inevitable 40$ on Amazon. This game's price ain't dropping easily.

Yeah, pulled the trigger earlier this week, when Battlefield 3 was set as free.
The DA:I Standard version is even cheaper, for those that do not care for for the extras (which so far, look quite irrelevant).

Are you supposed to change country back to US? I don't want to get stuck with a game on mexican origin or something.

Are EA actually ok with this, or will it put my account in danger? Seems kinda shady...

I take from OP, that this has been a recurring practice for some time now.

I was just about to buy it with this deal and I noticed that it releases on the 17th. Think it would be possible to unlock it early with a VPN?

I don't know what I was thinking when I posted this. Getting the game day 1. Especially since not much new other than Drive Club has interested me, and nothing after until well into 2015 most likely. I don't even think I'll try messing with that Mexico Origin thing. I don't want to get burned trying to save a few bucks.

From what I saw in the demos, it seems they made a real effort with the PC version of this game.

Isn't the 18th the release date for this game across all platforms? Or are you saying would we be able to use the Mexican street date instead?

Apparently not in Mexico. Just checked after another person suggested checking the South Korean and New Zealand release dates, and they both don't release as early as Mexico apparently does.

Hoping this'll get me the game a day early.

Edit: Just to clarify, hoping I can use a Mexican VPN to get it to unlock early.

When I switch back after adding the mexican version to my basket, it presents me with an empty cart. =/
Can I check out with a non-mexican paypal and play it on my non-mexican origin?

You have to switch back or disable Hola after you sign in.

What's a good VPN to use so I can unlock on Monday/Tuesday?
Also, I did it like it said in the OP and worked fine. I actually went to the UK Hola rather than turn it off because I had an issue with the store page loading when I turned off Hola. Also I had to turn off my Kaspersky who doesn't like Hola very much!

Edit; I found FlyVPN and they seem to work fine.

Done. Thanks OP. I was waiting for the right price and under 30 quid is that price. So pumped.
