Play Titanfall Free On PC for Two Days, Then Buy It For 50% Off

Respawn's shooter returns to Game Time promo, as full game offered for $20 now through Sunday; DLC on sale, too.

It's a good time to be in the market for the PC version of Respawn Entertainment's multiplayer shooter Titanfall. Not only has the game returned to EA's "Game Time" promotion on Origin--allowing you to play it for free for two days--but it's also marked down to $20.

EA launched the Game Time promotion back in June with Titanfall, and the publisher says the game has returned due to "popular demand." Anyone with an Origin account can play the game for a period of 48 hours, which begins immediately after you launch the game and continues whether you're playing it or not.

When the 48 hours is up, you can buy the game for 50% off its normal price of $40. In addition, all of the game's DLC is on sale. And everything you accomplished during free play will carry forward to the full game. While EA has not announced when the Game Time offer for Titanfall will expire, the 50 percent off deal and DLC savings will come to an end on the evening of Sunday, August 24.

Other EA PC titles available for Game Time right now include Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare (72 hours) and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning (48 hours).

I thought it was great when I played the last free game time. Content was low though so I didn't buy it. Can't seem to get another 48 hrs free time though since I've already had it before.

Actually I wouldn't take it if someone paid me to take it.

This game is not bad at all. It is actually really fun, and very polished as well. But it lacks some crucial stuff, like offline campaign, dedicated servers, Online leaderbaords, etc. and I hate the DLC, paying $10 for 3 maps, and nothing else. I'd say at $20 it is well worth it, tho. If you like playing Online shooters that is. I think its the best shooter game online right now. I play on PC.

I bit the Origin bullet because I wanted to play PvZ GW with my son on PC; so far no issues.

PvZ GW has been a blast, but I simply have no interest in Titanfall.

Respawn needs to add more game modes and a single-player expansion as a free download if they want to jump start this game on PC.

Got to take a look at this on an XBOX one a couple of days ago at a mates house and I was literally bored to tears with it after about half an hour - honestly, I really don't understand what everyone was jizzing over with this game - just don't understand it.

Its a poor game on PC that was designed for consoles in the first place. Played it on XBoxOne and it was fun for a few days until it became boring like most online fps's. Played it on PC and really didnt like the controls. Performance was all over the place.

The game completely is missing a story and resolution issues + empty promise, so, no.

I almost convinced myself to give it a shot, then I saw the DL size and said "eff it".  Then became depressed that I actually considered it.

Just bought the first map pack and love the forest level.  For anyone who hasn't played this yet and is curious try it out this weekend.  Ignore the haters and the huge file size.  The game is actually pretty fun and at $20 that is a good deal.  I say this as a guy who prefers single player games and really only does multi player with MMO games.  Although try to download it ASAP since you only have the weekend and it can take a few hours to download.   Also Origin is no where near as bad as people make it out to be.

I tried it on the last free weekend.  Was over 50 GB, took forever to install, (840 Evo), got bored in 20 minutes and uninstalled.

This game is awesome, I got hooked on the beta, and been playing it on the xbox one since release. And have learned a few things.

1. If a gamer says they played it at a friends house and was bored after an hour it means they sucked at the game and gave up. And other than admit they sucked, the game sucked.

2 it takes to about level 35 to really get the hang of the game, unless you are really good at fps, might be sooner or later depending of skill.

3 if you have have played Titanfall, and after the match your heart wasn't racing, and no adrenaline was pumping, then you have not experienced Titanfall.

It's a shame this game isn't on the ps4, it's just not doing this game justice to be a Microsoft exclusive.

No thank you. Played this game at a friend's. Was bored in an hour.

It's a shame most of the commenters below deny themselves the best arcade shooter to come around in about a decade. Especially over the pettiest of reasons.

Your loss, 'gamers'.

@ecurl143 because our dear gaming press hyped it up to be something it was never going to be

@shinjuki0 "all the better than every other gamer PC tools want to claim that their console is the only, logical even, console to be had"

A PC is not a console. Try not to look stupid yourself when you are trying to prove a point. It weakens your argument significantly.

@Genocide6sic6 It isn't that big of a deal.  It will take a few hours tops.  Just start the download before you go to bed or leave the house for a few hours.

@naughtygamer806 Same here.  I tried it last free weekend just to see what it was all about, but I normally could care less about MP as I only do SP.  However I loved it and bought the game after the trail.  The game was amazing and I have so much fun playing it.  I just got the first DLC pack today on sale.

Some nights, I can only get one or two games in because if I get in a good CTF game, everything afterwards would pale in comparison.

I also have 67 game clips recorded - 54 of them are Titanfall moments.

@Sevenizz lol. game was overhyped, man. glad you enjoyed it -- but calling it the greatest arcade shooter in a decade is completely opinionated, and a minority preference, at that. plants vs zombies has more playability than titanfail. thats actually a fact. google, my friend. or you know -- just look around in the comments, there's very few people here defending the game.. you, actually, of all people are the loudest voice. hmm..


lol


plants vs zombies...


titanfall sux

@Sevenizz And what is worse is many of them don't even take advantage of the free trial to see if they really would like the game.

You mean most PC gamers that play bf4 use it. It seriously blows. Bf4 is a mess too.

Yeah that happens, even tho it's only 6 vs 6 I find myself getting a bunch of double and triple kills. After a while it's easy to tell bots and pilots apart. Only noobs get confused by the ai.

Shouldn't you be playing your PS4 or something?

@BamaGoatt @Genocide6sic6

You're right, but assuming someone doesn't have limited internet they shouldn't let the file size affect their choice.

You show up in every Titanfall thread to trash it. Just another Sony fanboy jealous he can't play it presently.

There there, did you need a hug?

Oh, and you're a liar.
