Who says you need to spend a lot of money to play the PC version of Battlefield 4? As part of their “Game Time” initiative on digital distribution service Origin, Electronic Arts is offering the first-person shooter free of charge for a set amount of time. So anyone interested in checking out DICE’S 2013 game can download it and play it for 168 hours.
Take into account that while the game’s available for free for 7 days, the clock begins when you launch the game for the first time and continues even when you’re not playing the game. As you keep playing, an in-game clock will let you know how much time you have left. Nevertheless, that seems more than enough time to check out Battlefield 4 and see if it’s for you or not.
If you decide that the game’s for you, you don’t need to worry about the progress, since everything you’ve earned as part of the promotion carries over to the full version once you purchase it.
Other games that were available as part of the “Game Time” promotion include Titanfall and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.
