EA are giving away Battlefield 3 for the next few days, as part of their “On The House” promo.
Unfortunately they are not giving away the Premium Edition of the game but still the Standard Edition is worth it, especially when you can get it for free.
The Battlefield franchise needs no introduction, but I’ll describe it for you anyway. BF 3 is a renown first person shooter game, with the story set in modern Iran and Iraq. You get to play as different characters throughout the Singleplayer campaign, including a U.S. Marine like the one seen below.
