Titanfall Goes Free To Play

Respawn Entertainment’s mech-styled first person shooter, Titanfall, was generally well received with people appreciating the perfect balance of humans and robot warfare. If you haven’t played the game yet and you want to give it a go, then you’d be glad to hear that the game has just gone free, albeit a catch.


Following in the footsteps of Steam’s Free Weekend, EA have just announced that their shooter is absolutely free to download and play during the weekend. All you need is EA’s Origin client to get a hang of the action.

As posted on the official news page,

It’s Game Time! This is a brand new program on Origin: it’s free time with full games. Origin Game Time isn’t a demo, it’s the full game playable for free for as long as there’s time on your Game Time clock. And we’re kicking off Origin Game Time with a truly massive experience: Titanfall on PC.

Titanfall is only the beginning for Game Time and there’s more on the way. Each Game Time will be unique: different game, different time on the Game Time clock. We’ll keep you posted on Twitter and Facebook  when your next Origin Game Time game begins.

It should be noted that this would be a 48-hour active full version of the game and not some demo or beta version of the game.

For Titanfall you’re getting 48 full hours of Pilot/Titan action. It’s the entire game. The Origin Game Time clock begins the moment you start the game for the first time, and ticks down in realtime. Whether you’re fighting your friends or taking a break, the Game Time clock will continue to run.

If you really like the game and end up buying it (just like EA planned) then you’ll be glad to hear that all your progress will be transferred to your profile when you purchase the game!

Love the game after playing during Origin Game Time and want to continue? Your Titanfall progress is saved and you can pick up right where you left off if you purchase Titanfall.

EA are certainly trying hard to avoid being nominated for the notorious “Worst Company In America” after winning the award two times in a row during the last 3 years. The “Free to Play” offer comes after EA had started the “On The House” which offered some great games for free including Dead Space and Battlefield 3.

So if you have a weekend to kill, then this might help you do that! This offer is available only for the PC version and you can avail it by going here!
