This isn’t a trial or restricted version, it’s the complete product. The only “catch” is you’ll need an Electronic Arts account and a copy of Origin to download it, but that doesn’t involve much more than providing your email address, and everything else is handled more or less automatically.
The game should work on any modern PC – and most ancient ones, too – but keep in mind that it expects to be running full-screen and exclusively. If you Alt+Tab away to some other application, the game screen may not be displayed correctly when you switch back.
