Free Game Weekly: BattleForge

Remember when “card game” used to mean either something as innocent as gin rummy or as cutthroat as poker? Then, thanks to a little game called Magic: The Gathering, playing cards took on a more strategic role-playing flavor, and instead of baseball players, gamers were suddenly trading spells and creatures. If you’re looking for your collect-and-trade-cards-to-use-them-in-a-fantasy-setting fix, then we’ve got just that in our Origin Free To Play catalog: Battleforge.

We’ve already mentioned how you have both Battlefield Heroes, and even the original Battlefield 1942, to get your shooter fix for free.

Free Game Weekly: Wrath of Heroes

The multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) genre can be a bit intimidating. The most famous ones, such as DOTA or League of Legends, require you to have a good grasp of some arcane and technical rules and mechanics.

At Origin, we offer our own take on the genre with another selection from our free-to-play library: Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes.

Free Game Weekly: Lord of Ultima

We’ll admit it: when there’s a little bit of downtime at the office, we sneak off to play around with some browser-based games. Though, these tend to be superficial games that focused mostly on endless clicking without depth. For those of you who prefer strategy games with a bit more depth, you should look into one game from our extensive free games library: Lord of Ultima—a deeper strategic take on the beloved Ultima franchise.
