    I guess they desperately want to do something about the image of the game, after its completely failed launch. They did similar things with BF3 and it worked miracles.

    It's on discount as well. It was 26.99 last week, now it's 24.99. And they just announced a big game-changing patch coming in September.

    The game is doing terrible, they need to turn things around somehow.

    With all the server crashings and hope dashings, I didn't even know you could play Battlefield 4 for a week, let alone at all.

    Make it free on PS4 and I'll think about it.

    Meh, I know there's supposed to be some big patch coming to fix the game, but they've said that so many times I just can't be assed to give a shit about BF4.

    Playing Battlefield games a year after launch just annoy the crap out of me.
    Everyone has good guns and I'm stuck at a low level.

    It's a nice deal, really. But my PC backlog is so huge I really have to pass on this.

    So basically the game is dying. Not really surprising...does it still use that god awful battle log browser BS instead of a real server browser?
    I remember trying to get into beta, and as usual the game didn't run on my PC. Didn't even bother trying to get it to, I just uninstalled and moved on to real games.

    Also it's hard to say it's free for a week when I have to run and likely update the horrid pile of garbage, Origin.

    Same.

    It might last a little better if I didn't throw it against the wall so hard...

    They've already updated the netcode, it's apparently much better atm than it was 3 months ago. This game is FINALLY getting the updates and fixes it needs.
    I'm so glad I didn't pre-order it, was really contemplating it because I love BF3. But from what I've played in the free BF4 week, BF3 is just better... Feels so much better, plays more fluently, guns are more fun, jets are 10 times as fun.

    Nice offer, longer than Steam free weekends.. My good old PC can only handle "normal" settings, stuttering every few seconds by "high", still very well done game, I like it and the little squad command.. However, I am victim of the infamous sewer bug in Singapore mission 4, so.. To help out potential unfortunate tempers like me, by some google results.. I have yet to restart the mission and try..
