Time to game everyone. Origin’s has just released the new set of freebie trial games that they hope will entice you enough to get hooked so you open up that wallet and buy. The last Origin’s Game Time release was for Titanfall, needless to say, I played the crap out of it and recently bought it about a week ago. Today you have two games to choose from.
Battlefield 4 is the hottest titles of the two. If you haven’t picked it up yet, now is your chance to find out for yourself if it is worth having in your collection or not. EA and Dice have had a lot of negative press surrounding the game since it launched, but a lot of things have improved a lot since the start-up of the CTE (community test environment) with plenty more fixes on the way. Being a casual gamer I find it enjoyable. I have witnessed a few issues here and there, but since I don’t take gaming seriously, none of the issues ruin my gaming. The Game Time exclusive will give you 7 days to duke it out in the multiplayer battlefield. I assume it will be like the Titanfall Game Time experience where the time doesn’t start until you launch the game the first time. They make mention that “This is the entire Battlefield 4 experience.” We assume that means you will have access to all the current game modes and maps. Already owning Premium, I can’t confirm that for you though. The Battlefield 4 Digital Deluxe version of the game is also on sale to help you ease into the purchase. It only offers up the China Rising DLC and 3 Gold Battlepacks though, but for $26.39, it isn’t a bad deal. If you go all out, the Premium deal with all current expansion and the next Final Stand DLC is on sale for $51.98.
Next up is one I know nothing about. Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. This is an action RPG title that is also from EA, but is a bit older, being released in February of 2012. That doesn’t make any less great though as that was just the release of the first title. It picked up a few DLC packages during its time that adds more exploring space, weapons and a heck of a lot more. This one only allows you 48 hours of play time, so you will want to open it when you plan to sit and put in the effort to give it a solid chance. If you like it, the standard edition of the game is $9.99, on sale apparently from $19.99. You can expect to spend another $25 on DLC packages with new chapters and goodies.
To snag these, you can head to the Origin ‘It’s Game Time’ page.
