Battlefield 3 for PS3

If you’re a PlayStation owner and curious about the all-out warfare in Battlefield 4, you’re in for a treat.

PS3 owners with a PlayStation Plus membership in North America can experience DICE’s action shooter for free. A trial version of Battlefield 4 will be available for download starting tomorrow, May 27th, on the PlayStation Store.

The free trial version contains the full Battlefield 4 base game and will be available for 20 hours from the first moment you boot up the game. To download, simply head to PlayStation Store, search for Battlefield 4, and locate the trial version.

Why you should give Battlefield 4 a try:

Intense Multiplayer: Nothing compares to the scale and scope of Battlefield 4’s multiplayer. Enjoy the all-time classic Conquest or Rush modes, plant a bomb in Obliteration, or show your skills in the fast-paced world of Domination.

Vehicle Warfare: Tanks, boats, jets, and helis — the vehicular warfare delivers all that you need to dominate multiplayer matches.

Destruction: Change the face of battle with levolution and experience destruction both big and small. Take down an entire skyscraper or kill the lights in a building to shroud your enemy in darkness.

Battlefield 3 for PS3

Stunning Visuals: The Frostbite 3 engine ensures breath-taking vistas and total immersion in the varied sceneries you’ll encounter in the game.

Only in Battlefield 4: The dynamic multiplayer gameplay ensures that no two matches are the same. Whether you’re parachuting down to an enemy control point or attaching C4 to a tank, unpredictable Battlefield moments will keep you on the edge of your seat.

To learn more about Battlefield 4 and the basics of the game, visit our Boot Camp, or subscribe to the Battlefield Facebook page to find out tips on how to play better and see cool in-game stunt videos.

Thanks for playing.

    We hope you can join us on the Battlefield. 20 hours should be good to give you a taste of the game, and let you experience some really crazy moments. If you happen to test it out, let me know what part of it you liked the most?

i hope this isn’t taking the place of out ps plus discounts this week or something. I have no interest in this after experiencing how boring BF3 was when it was free for plus last year. It had one of the worst single player campaigns i’ve ever seen in a shooter. Even the worst CoD games (Ghosts, MW3) had more life in their story modes.

is this already the weekly update?


13

+ ChaseHammerJ on May 26th, 2014 at 7:57 am said:

Booo. First, very misleading title.
Second, 20 hours from first start? Not accumulative?

Meaning you start playing at 4:00pm and get to play til 5:30 when dinner is, put kids in bath, kids to bed its 8:30 get to play for another 1-1 1/2 hours until bed because I have to get up at 3:30am come. Get off work come back to play at 3:00pm only to find out that it expired at noon. Got a whooping 2-3 hour demo.

WOOT what a deal. That makes me want to buy it even more now.

+ GummyCore on May 26th, 2014 at 7:58 am said:

I would rather they take out the sp part of the game and give that as IGC.

For that matter, EA/Activision should take out the sp from BF/COD and sell them as standalone games ($5-10). Surely if someone likes the sp, he is more likely to buy the mp, rt? (Sp is basically an afterthought in these games anyway – as an extended tutorial or showcase, to create maps that people can play on mp, and to attract people into the mp.) This is tapping into the market of people who would otherwise not buy the whole game at all.

What is the file size some 30gb or so?

For a second I thought it was totally free to keep than read the article and saw that it is for only 20 hours. Just wondering would that be enough time to finish the single player and achieve some trophies or the trial wouldn’t have this option?


21

+ TYruler50 on May 26th, 2014 at 9:41 am said:

Size is 11gb

Trophies don’t show for trials, you get the notification but nobody can see them but you.

+ GummyCore on May 26th, 2014 at 9:50 am said:

Technically the title isn’t wrong. It says you can play it for free tomorrow – just “tomorrow”, not “starting from tomorrow”, not “every day after tomorrow”. All they did was shortchanged you 4 hrs :D


23

+ SpaceOddity87 on May 26th, 2014 at 9:56 am said:

Not a big fan of these sorts of games, but free is free. Sounds like 20 hours should be more than enough time to play through the campaign.

+ DoutorPierre on May 26th, 2014 at 10:48 am said:

20 hours should be enough to run all the campaing and take some hours of multiplayer but all in a intense marathon bf4 day.

The campaign for BF3 did suck immensely, not even really worth remembering. But BF4 is actually pretty good. Has 3 endings, although they aren’t really too big in themselves, but getting each one gets you another gun for use in multiplayer.

20 hours is fairly weak considering how peoples’ schedules may be, but it’s still better than the usual hour for trials. Worth trying if you haven’t played it yet.

+ bigdaddy_Rich on May 26th, 2014 at 11:40 am said:

This is a pretty good deal considering the game trials are only an hour long. I’m also guessing it’ll work just like the trials meaning once you start your 20 hours, it’ll run through continuously even if you’re not playing the game, so make sure you have a good chunk of time you can set aside for the game.

Haven’t played it in a while but, aren’t jets & helis locked to DLC or is it just certain ones that are locked?

@Vincent Vukovic (blog author). Please confirm how the 20-hour trial timer works. Is it a running timer once you start the game, regardless if you’re in the game or not? Or, 20-hours of actual time spent in the game that can be spread across multiple days?

Very disappointed! Last night I wanted to try Battlefield, but I had to download a 600+ mb update that took almost 50 minutes. In the mean time, something came up, so when the download was finished I turned off my system thinking that since I didn’t even bring up the title screen, I would be able to try the game tonight. Now I go to play it and it says that my time has expired. Never even got a chance to see the intro menu! What a waste. I was really looking forward to trying this because I wasn’t sure if I would like it. Lokks like I don’t have to worry about it now. Worst “trial” ever!
