Battlefield 3 drops to $5 on Origin, Close Quarters DLC is free

Battlefield 3 Sale Free DLCIf you’ve been holding off on buying Battlefield 3 for PC because of the price or because, let’s face it, Origin isn’t as user-friendly as Steam, maybe this latest deal will convince you. A poll recently went live on Origin asking gamers which title they’d like to see drop to $5 today, and Battlefield 3 came out victorious over Mass Effect 3 and The Sims 3. EA is further getting into the E3 spirit (and trying to build hype for Battlefield 4) by offering the Close Quarters DLC pack for Battlefield 3 for free during the week of E3 when you redeem the code ‘BF3E3’ in Origin.

The Close Quarters DLC will also be available for no cost in the in-game store for the console versions of Battlefield 3. Both offers are valid until June 19th, when the E3 rush will start to die down. Many other titles on Origin will also be marked down for the week, you may want to have a look through the rest of the store.

Breanna has been gaming since infancy, if gnawing on an unattended controller counts as playing a game. One of the younger members of the Gaming Trend family, she dabbled in PC games as a kid but wasn't fully consumed by the hobby until the sixth generation of consoles. Now an avid PC and console gamer, she looks forward to the day when she can scape together enough cash to join the next gen club.

In the last week of middle school, a math teacher taught her how to program a calculator; she was pretty much hooked then and there. Currently working towards a degree in Computer Science and Applied Math, Breanna hope to someday make games instead of just writing about them. Other hobbies include playing guitar, binge-watching Netflix, and cooking delicious food.
