How to Buy Games for Cheap from Origin’s Mexico Store

Almost all EA games are released on Origin and available through its online store. Origin has exclusive titles like Battlefield and Need for Speed. However, Origin doesn’t conduct sales as often as Steam.

If you want to try Need for Speed Rivals without spending $60, Origin Mexico is the solution. Game prices vary by region, and Origin’s Mexico store often has lower prices. However, buying from the Mexico store is not as simple as selecting the region on the site. Follow this guide to learn how.

Setting Up the Proxy Connection

You can’t directly access the Mexican store, Origin servers identify your country from your IP address and redirect you to your country’s store. To circumvent this, we use a proxy. Depending on your browser, the procedure for setting up proxies will vary. Here, I will explain the procedure for the two most popular browsers: Firefox and Chrome.

For Firefox:

Finding free proxy servers is not difficult; a simple Google search will yield plenty of sites. I recommend Proxynova. To set up, you’ll need the proxy server’s IP address and port. Choose a server with a high uptime and fast proxy speed from the list of servers. Once you’ve chosen a server, copy the IP address and remember the four-digit port number.

Open Firefox and go to Options > Advanced > Network Tab. Click the Settings button under Connection.

In the Connection Settings window, select Manual Proxy Configuration and enter the IP address in the HTTP Proxy field and the port number you copied. Click OK to finish.

To set up a proxy on Chrome, install the Proxy SwitchySharp extension from the extensions store. Open the SwitchySharp Options by going to Settings > Extensions, and enter the IP address and port number in the HTTP Proxy and Port fields. Save to finish.

To load the profile, click the blue globe icon in the top-right corner of Chrome and select the saved profile.

I will demonstrate the next steps in Firefox, my primary browser, but they should be the same in other browsers.

Check out Origin’s On the House for free games and the Game Time section to try certain games before buying them.

After setting up and enabling your proxy, go to origin.com. Your URL should look like: “https://www.origin.com/en-mx/store/” with “en-mx” indicating the Mexico region. If Origin still redirects you to your country’s store, clear cookies (in Firefox or in Chrome) and disable all scripts.
