Thought i'd share the sale I found in r/GameDeals. A Russian website called Yuplay is selling a region free version for 1199 rubles/monopoly money, which exchanges to $33.78USD/real money. Just go to the site, select the PayPal option in the drop down menu, and pay with the security of knowing that PayPal might get you your money back if things go tits up and EA decides to ban your account (which I highly doubt will happen).
I know a lot of people were hesitant on getting a $60 multiplayer game, so a ~$30 multiplayer game is probably a lot easier to swallow. I've already gone through the process and I'm currently pre-loading the game on Origin.
