Battlefield 3 Will Require EA Origin

Playstation 3 Xbox 360 PC News FPS EA

If you plan to buy Battlefield 3 for PC, then make sure you have Origin before putting that disk in the CD tray. It was announced that the PC version of the game will require the EA download service in order for the game to run.

DICE Community Manager Daniel Martos announced that the measure will affect retail versions of the game through BF3Blog. There was no mention of the downloaded version from Origin; however, it is safe to assume that both versions will require the constant Origin connection.

This announcement comes after Battlefield 3 was removed from Steam, thus unavailable for users of the service. It was widely believed that the measure took place after EA disagree with certain rules of the service, most notably that DLC and patches must be provided through Steam.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
