EA is giving away Battlefield 3 for free to PC gamers.
The publisher is making a habit of offering free titles to Origin users, having previously made the likes of Dead Space and Plants vs Zombies free to download.
Battlefield 3 will remain free until June 4th.
There’s also some good news for Battlefield 4 owners, with DICE VP and GM Karl Magnus Troedsson promising that the confirmation of the Visceral-developed Battlefield Hardline will not shorten its planned support for the title.
I want to be sure you all understand that introducing Hardline in no way means we’re done working on Battlefield 4,” he insisted.
Nothing could be further from the truth. The Visceral team is leading the development of Hardline, while the DICE team continues to drive BF4. We are committed to giving you the best BF4 experience possible.
There are dedicated BF4 teams in Stockholm, Uppsala and LA that will continue to address any issues that might occur. But more importantly will also look to make significant additions to the game. We are also working on a major update to the Battlefield 4 netcode.
The games we develop are services. We focus on taking care of the games post launch, delivering new content to those of you who want it and always working hard to increase quality of play. We also continue to work hard to keep investing in areas where you tell us you see opportunities for improvements and new features.
Yes, we’re very excited to partner with Visceral on the development of Battlefield Hardline, but ongoing work to refine and enhance BF4 remains a top priority.”
