The Battlefield 6 reveal is right around the corner (opens in new tab), and in the run-up to the June 9 presentation, Amazon Prime members can snag a copy of Battlefield 4 for free. Between June 1 and June 20, you can grab a code for the standard edition of the game via Prime Gaming on Twitch. You can only grab an Origin code (sorry, Steam purists) but hey, it's free.

Battlefield 4 takes place six years after the fictional "War of 2020," though that term feels a little too close to real life these days. Evan gave the game a score of 84 (opens in new tab) when he reviewed it back in 2013, calling it a "visually and sonically satisfying, reliably intense FPS," even if it didn't stray too far from Battlefield 3.

It seems strange to pass over Battlefield 5 in favour of its predecessor, but Battlefield 4 generally had a better reception. It's a nice way to entice newbies into the series or give fans a chance to dip their toes into an older game. If anything, it'll hopefully keep people busy long enough for EA to plug all the holes in the dreadfully leaky ship (opens in new tab) that is Battlefield 6.

It's had a hard time keeping the newest game under wraps. While we won't know anything for certain until the June 9 reveal, rumours are already swirling around the game's potential theme and alleged screenshots making the rounds on the 'net. EA and DICE remain relatively unbothered by it all, playing into the cheekiness and, apparently, thinking about spaghetti a lot. (opens in new tab)

A fresh writer in the industry, Mollie has been taken under PC Gamer's RGB-laden wing, making sure she doesn't get up to too much mischief on the site. She's not quite sure what a Command & Conquer is, but she can rattle on for hours about all the obscure rhythm games and strange MMOs from the 2000s. She's been cooking up all manner of news, previews and features while she's been here, but especially enjoys when she gets to write about Final Fantasy, Persona, The Sims, and whatever other game she's currently hopelessly fixated on. There's a good chance she's boring another PC Gamer writer about her latest obsession as we speak.
