Play Battlefield 4 Free On PC Right Now

You can play DICE's 2013 shooter free for 168 hours through Game Time promotion available now on Origin.

DICE's 2013 shooter Battlefield 4 has returned to EA's "Game Time" promotion on Origin, meaning PC users can now play the game for free. EA is offering up seven days of free play, though that clock begins when you launch the game and continues when you're sleeping and eating.

But don't worry, the time needed to download and install Battlefield 4 is not counted towards the 168 hours of free time. Once you get the game running, the clock will begin, and you'll be notified in-game with how much time you have left.

Gamers who decide to buy Battlefield 4 when the Game Time ends won't have to worry about starting over, as all of your progress will carry over. You can add Battlefield 4 to your Origin game library here.

Battlefield 4 is not the only game available now through Game Time, though its duration of 168 hours is by far the longest. Others include Respawn Entertainment's shooter Titanfall (48 hours) and role-playing game Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning (48 hours).

While it's not completely free, Xbox One owners with an EA Access membership ($5/month or $30/year) can currently play Battlefield 4 all they want without paying anything extra.

Cool. I always wanted to play the SP campaign but I never thought that it was worth the money to buy the full game for it. :)

I don't like this practice. I either want a game, or I don't. I don't want to be able to play a game only for a few days.

So this is why I have been seeing a huge amount of players getting banned in the servers I regularly play...

@ECH71 Ha no I just think Origin and everything to do with EA is sh*t. Just having that thing on my computer feels like I'm contributing to EA.

Unless I'm contributing to their downfall I won't be interested. EA were a good company but they have passed the point of no return for me. Now I won't be happy till they are gone.

Well this is good news. I wasn't able to finish the campaign last time around, so assuming my progress carries over hopefully I can finish it this time and maybe even have time to try the multiplayer and see how a year's worth of updates have improved the game.


Oh, and no I have no intention of buying the game, but I love Origin's various free game promotions. These free game trials I enjoy a lot more than Steam's because it starts when you launch the game, not only during specific dates.

All because of COD AW, you can bet EA will force dice to make a WW2 BF game if a WW2 COD comes out.

If you're looking to play the campaign, don't. Just trust me on this one.

I enjoyed BF4 for PC for a while, but it can be frustrating playing with all the extremely good people who have played this continually since launch. I pity anyone trying to start now.

<< LINK REMOVED >> I started playing BF4 a week ago. Normally in top 5 in 32-64 matches. That being said, I played plenty of BF3 when it was released.

It's a great idea. If it was anyone other than EA people wouldn't say anything bad. If Nintendo gave out a 100+ hour demo of SSB everyone would be praising them. This is a good thing, get off the hate bandwagon.

@Oozyrat Yeah because EA are scum and their games suck.

Playing an EA game for free is like having someone pelt your front door with sh*t. It might be free but just completely beside the point.
