I hope you haven’t got anything planned for this weekend, because EA has announced that Titanfall is now completely free to play for 48 hours, thanks to a new program dubbed Origin Game Time. The program begins with the mech-toting multiplayer shooter, and gamers will be able to play the full version of Titanfall for a two whole days, commencing from the moment they first boot it up.

While EA is yet to have anything that could match Steam’s usually mindboggling Summer Sales, this looks to be the answer to drag gamers away from Valve’s store. Steam is already in the practice of offering up free weekends, but rarely on titles as huge as Titanfall...

Once you log-in to Titanfall the 48-hour timer will begin ticking down regardless of whether you’re playing or not, after which your access will be revoked. All the progress made during the 48-hours game time will carry on over to the full version of Titanfall should you stump up for a copy.

Boot up Origin now and you should find Titanfall available to download under the Free Games tab, but be be warned it’s a pretty hefty 48GB install and 21GB download. As I type this it’s not actually available in my Origin client, but the update should be rolling out throughout the day.

Origin Game Time isn’t the only kind gesture EA has shown as of late, with its Origin store also recently giving away free copies of Battlefield 3, Plants vs Zombies, and Peggle. There’s no word yet on what other goodies EA plans to offer for its program, but we wouldn’t mind betting Battlefield 4 will rear its head sometime soon…

Are you preparing to Titanfall? What do you make of EA's new-found generosity? Let us know!

You know, after reading some of these posts, I have to say, that there are some whiny little bastards on this site. It's not EA's fault that you guys either don't have decent internet in your area, or you're too cheap to pay for it. Me, it took half a day to download it, which I did while I was away at work, so it was ready to go when I got home. I do think it is a bit boring, but hey its free.

If its a 21 Gb download why did i download 50 Gb? But it did not bother me with my 25MB/s internet speed.

So they ARE giving the game away. I didnt see anything in the Beta which might require more than 1 hr on each map to experience. So thats 30 hrs max. 48 hrs is just overkill for this game.

that's...actually better than Steam's free weekends, since they count regardless if you're downloading or not (as far as I know) and this is an interesting direction for Origin.

Download speed: 55 kbps. So 21 GB might take a complete week to download.

Does the Origin store crash for you guys? I can't get it to stay open for more than a few seconds.
