EA / Origin is currently offering three juicy On the House free downloads for PC owners. Joining the current headlining Medal of Honour Pacific Assault full game for free download, there are a couple of pieces of DLC that will be free for anyone to download until 10th May.

Both the Battlefield 4 Dragon's Teeth DLC and the Battlefield Handline: Robbery DLC are available for free download now, to celebrate the soon to be revealed new Battlefield 5 game. From the official blog post, this looks like a trend that is set to continue as it says "Over the next few months we'll be giving away previously released expansion packs for both games to anyone playing on Xbox One, Xbox 360, Origin for PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3".

The infantry focussed Dragon's Teeth offers "intense urban battles across four dense Asian Pacific maps". There's also a game mode called Chain Link, and a remote controlled gadget called the R.A.W.R. with a machine gun and rocket launcher, in this expansion.

Battlefield Hardline: Robbery provides four expansive maps including The Docks, Break Pointe, Museum, and Precinct 7. Player can enjoy a game mode called Squad Heist which is a tribute to BF3's Squad Rush. Again you will get your hands on new weapons and gadgets to flesh out this DLC.

Currently both Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline are priced at $9.99 (£7.49) on Origin for PC, or can be bought through the Xbox One and PS4 stores. While you need these base games to access the DLC you can still claim the free DLC now and even try it out, via the free game trials available, says Origin. Whatever the case, these DLC packs, once claimed, will be yours to keep - like all previous On the House offerings.

Remember Battlefield 5 is to feature in a 'world premiere' event tomorrow.

That will be 99% then.
at the half price and the promise of the free DLCs being trickled out over the next few months its a good time to buy the base games… I have BF4 premium and HL standard, so i'll benefit from the free DLC for HL… just got to remember to check every couple of weeks and get them during their (shortish) window of availability… good way to drum up a little more business (base games) and keep people focused on Battlefield and Origin in general. Clever bit of marketing this. As long as BF5 is good, this could pay dividends for EA etc
I have neither Battlefield game in my Origin library, but it turns out you can just “download” either DLC anyway. You'll get an order receipt in your mail, as you would when doing any other purchase on Origin, including getting “On the House” titles. I guess the free DLC will be waiting for you if and when you decide to get the base games.

Thanks, I just added it to my Origin account!
