Fans who go to the game’s Steam page will be met with the option to play for free.

Downloading a free copy is pretty simple, as players only have to go to the game’s Steam page in order to find the download link. If you’re confused, however, here’s some simple instructions.

  1. Go to Steam and search for Titanfall 2.
  2. Scroll down until you see the “Play Titanfall 2” section.
  3. Click “Play Game” and the download should then start.

Titanfall 2 normally costs around $30, so this deal is pretty nice. While it’s not available on both Xbox and PlayStation, it’s important to remember that it is included with EA Play, so if you have a subscription to that or Xbox Games Pass Ultimate, you’ll have it available to you for free already.
