Seems to be a new move from EA to allow you to sample games free for a small length of time. BF4 is currently available on a 7 day free run

 

Clicky

Evil mimics good all the time, doesn't mean their intentions are the same.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning was added too.

 

And semi related, SimCity (5) now has a 4 hour SP demo available.

Meanwhile in the overnight, Battlefield 4 gives way to Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare for the weekend.  (The Game of the Year version of the original was featured in On the House in June - so the comparing is easy.)

Garden Warfare is super fun, so I recommend anyone who hasn't played it to try it out.

And it's using the Frostbite engine (same engine used by the Battlefield franchise) - should it be called the Warfare Engine?

Bejeweled 3 is the latest On the House game.  It's free until October 28.

Considering the Frostbite engine is used in at least 5 franchises at this point...umm...no.

It was OTH in June, so this is the first "repeat" for OTH.  (I grabbed BF3 the first time around - this should pull in the last of the stragglers.)

Also, Bejeweled 3 overlaps (I grabbed it Tuesday) at least through September.

 

And I DID count NFS Rivals as "warfare" - how many franchises use one form or another of the Frostbite engine?

NFS: The Run also used it, Garden Warfare, Battlefield of course, Dragon Age: Inquisition and the next Mass Effect.  I assume there are more that I haven't noticed yet.

 

I don't see why they'd change the name at all.  Your suggestion does not make any sense to me.
