EA's Next Free On the House Game Now Available

Nox and a Battlefield Hardline DLC pack are free for a limited time.


EA continues to give away free games through its On the House program, with the latest being made available today.

Action RPG Nox is the latest title to be offered for free. Originally released for PC back in 2000, it was developed by Command & Conquer creator Westwood Studios. It features both a single-player campaign (where you play as either a warrior, wizard, or conjurer) and an online multiplayer mode.

However, being such an old game, the official online servers are no longer available. That means your only option for multiplayer is resorting to a LAN setup or looking online for solutions that fans have come up with.

You can grab Nox for free now through Origin. While it does require you to use EA's Steam-esque service to get the game, adding it to your library permanently makes it yours--you don't need to stay subscribed to anything, as is the case with Games With Gold or PlayStation Plus.

Additionally, On the House is offering one of Battlefield Hardline's expansions, Getaway, for free. (It's free on consoles, too.) You don't need to own the game in order to claim it, so you can grab it for use with the Origin Access version of Hardline or in case you end up with a copy in the future.
