EA’s Origin service may have been met with some derision among PC users and their dependence on using Steam for the primary source of their gaming, but EA is offering a little bit of incentive to get these gamers over onto their game selling portal. Also it doesn’t help that they’ve been pulling their games off of Steam… but moving on.
If gamers pre-order Battlefield 3 from the Origin store they will be able to get early access the open beta when it is available in September. Also those who pre-order will receive the Back To Karkand DLC, two exclusive items for Battlefield Play4Free and the Physical Warfare Pack. Sound good enough to make you think twice about the Origin store? Maybe so, maybe not, but if so you can pre-order using the service here.
