Grab your free copy of Battlefield 3 right now on Xbox One and Xbox 360

It’s the middle of the month and for Xbox gamers the world over that can only mean one thing – it’s time for a new free game or two. And right now, the awesome Battlefield 3 can be grabbed for nothing.

A native Xbox 360 title, Battlefield 3 has been stripped of its price tag for the next two weeks. That means anyone with an Xbox Live Gold membership can take advantage of the generosity of those at Microsoft HQ, and will now get the chance to head into a great shooter. The fact that the game can be played and enjoyed over on Xbox One, thanks to the Xbox Backwards Compatible feature is just another plus.

So, with a decent story that ensured it was one of the last great shooters of the previous generation of gaming, and a tight multiplayer aspect which oozes quality, then Battlefield 3 is well worth a play – especially now that it is free. The issue however centres around exactly how many gamers will bother heading back to a game that has obviously aged, and will quite possibly be frowned upon by those who are now used to the stunning shooting experiences found in the likes of Battlefield 1.

But should you be looking for a new shooter, and haven’t played Battlefield 3, then now is your chance. Get over to the Xbox Games Store and pick it up now.

If you wish to know more about the Xbox Games With Gold scheme for September 2017, then get over and check out our in-depth article.

Game Description:

Battlefield 3 leaps ahead of the competition with the power of Frostbite™ 2, the next installment of DICE’s cutting-edge game engine. This state-of-the-art technology is the foundation on which Battlefield 3 is built, delivering superior visual quality, a grand sense of scale, massive destruction, dynamic audio and incredibly lifelike character animations. As bullets whiz by, walls crumble, and explosions throw you to the ground, the battlefield feels more alive and interactive than ever before. In Battlefield 3, players step into the role of the elite U.S. Marines where they will experience heart-pounding single player missions and competitive multiplayer actions ranging across diverse locations from around the globe including Paris, Tehran and New York.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One. A massive racing fan, Forza 4 was the daddy of all Xbox titles but Forza Horizon 3 now trumps that. Online first person shooters are my hell....probably because my reactions are so poor, but give me a little Indie title and I'll be in heaven. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
