Cheapest deal for EA Battlefront

Post by AnthonyBF2 »

I want to try EA Battlefront but I do not believe I will actually play it often, so I do not want to spend too much money. Also how much is DLC and other stuff that we didn't have to pay for in 2005?

Can anyone mention some ways to get deals and discounts?

As of right now, the base game is $39.99. Origin is also running a 30% off promo that'll slice the cost even further down to $27.99, which is the cheapest I've ever seen it without getting into sketchy VPN stuff.

That's good to know, but don't I have to pay for something else to get multiplayer? If I can get the base game with multiplayer under $30 that will be cool.

No, multiplayer modes are included in the base game, the expansions just add extra maps/modes.

So, I don't need any DLC or "Season Pass" correct?

Also - does the Origin software have a function to pause downloads? I know the game is large and I would not be able to download all of it at once.

They aren't necessary to play any of the base maps or modes, no, only to access the new stuff. And yes, pausing downloads is possible.

Not sure if this is still active. But you could try the game for 4 hours once.

I see the option but I won't do that as it's going to take me several days to download it. If it were a 24 hour trial I would but 4 hours isn't worth the wait for me. I get paid in a few days so I will probably just get the promo thing for $28.

Is it possible to buy an activation key separately? It took about a day but I downloaded the main game files (torrent) just to get that out of the way, I didn't expect the game to work (and it didn't) - so all I need now is to find out how to buy a key instead of the game, if it is possible.

Thanks anyone who knows!

but you won't get the origin price. You better get it on origin and download it there. Maybe you can put the files in the origin's game folder, so origin don't need to redownload.

When I setup the game files it told me it needed Origin, so I installed Origin and then started the game. Origin then wanted a product activation so am I sure I already have the Origin game, it just needs activation, and probably more updates. I also will not buy anything yet, until I get paid this week.

I will, I was just wondering if there was other ways to buy keys (hoping I don't have to download again)

I am pretty much done with this topic now.
