Updated: Game Time is over for Battlefield 4. But Electronic Arts has added Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare to its Game Time program now. You have until August 25th to add the game to your Game Library.
Electronic Arts (EA) has added Battlefield 4 and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning to its Game Time program on Origin. For those who don’t know, Origin Game Time is a new promotional service that lets you play full version EA games for free, albeit only for a limited time. So how is this service different from the demo? Demos typically only let you play a specific slice of a game but the “Origin Game Time” program gives you full access to the entire gameplay experience.
First off, you’ll be able to play the popular first-person shooter Battlefield 4 for 168 hours, which is one full week via the Game Time program. You’ll be able to grab Battlefield 4 on Origin Game Time until August 14 at 10:00 AM PT, but once you’ve snagged it, you can download the game and start your 168 hour Game Time clock whenever you want.
Alongside Battlefield 4, Origin users in select countries can also play a free, 48-hour trial of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning! This Reckoning free trial is only available in North America, Great Britain and Australia to start, stay tuned for more games and a wider reach in the coming months.
Your Origin Game Time clock begins when you first launch the game after it’s been fully downloaded and installed. Once started, the clock will continue to run whether or not you’re actually playing the game.
Origin will automatically save all your progress during Game Time. If you decide to buy the game, you’ll be able to pick up right where you left off with all of your unlocks and levels intact.
