Play PC Titanfall for Free

Origin News announces a new program granting gamers free time to play games they haven't purchased. They kick this off with an opportunity to try this out on Titanfall, their recently released mech shooter. Here's how this works:

Itís Game Time! This is a brand new program on Origin: itís free time with full games. Origin Game Time isnít a demo, itís the full game playable for free for as long as thereís time on your Game Time clock. And weíre kicking off Origin Game Time with a truly massive experience: Titanfall on PC.

This weekend youíll be able to download Titanfall and play for free for two days straight. Weíre launching Origin Game Time for Titanfall across the world over the next several hours, so if you donít see it available yet in your territory, you will soon. Origin Game Time games will appear on our Free Games page when theyíre available to download.

Havenít felt the thrill of dropping an 18-foot tall metallic beast on your opponent? What about the rush of leaping from wall to wall through the war-torn alleyways of a devastated compound? This is your chance to really see for yourself what Titanfall is all about. Play it for yourself. It wonít cost you a thing.

For Titanfall youíre getting 48 full hours of Pilot/Titan action. Itís 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 youíre fighting your friends or taking a break, the Game Time clock will continue to run.

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.

If you already own Titanfall, this weekend is a great time to get back into the game. Origin Game Time will bring new Pilots into the fight Ė help your teammates or swoop in for some easy points.

Titanfall is only the beginning for Game Time and thereís more on the way. Each Game Time will be unique: different game, different time on the Game Time clock. Weíll keep you posted on Twitter and Facebook (and here!) when your next Origin Game Time game begins.

Had plenty of fun with Titanfall when it first launched. With the exception of some VERY minor dabbling with Halo on 360, it's the only online FPS I've played since Quake 3 Arena and Enemy Territory, really.

A major gripe I have with these new games, is matchmaking causing a complete lack of community. Back in the day with dedicated servers, even though they'd be empty half the day, you'd eventually get to know the people you played with. In a game like Titanfall, while finding full games is as easy as pressing the PLAY button, there's just an endless stream of random faces to play, which gets boring for me fast. I suppose if you get really into it you could join the competition scene (which I assume exists in some form) but I was never *that* into it.

Somebody just needs to buy an Unreal license and kickstart a 24-64 player online shooter featuring vehicles, destructibility, and NO FUCKING DLC. Open it up for anybody to host their own server and anybody who has an Unreal license can make maps for it. (Hey, they're only $20 a month) Instant success.
