Origin, the much hated EA Digital distribution service trying to compete with Steam has left a bad taste in many gamers mouths as of late. Well, there is a way to play your precious BF3 without running it through Origin. I’m not saying EA approves of this method or anything, I’m just saying there is a way to play Battlefield 3 without having to run it through Origin. I am personally hoping and waiting for BF3 to come to Steam in the near future (please, ohh pretty please). Razor1911 is the mighty man behind this deal, here is what they say about Origin.
Razor1911 doesn’t accept and support the online DRM ‘Origin’ from EA.This release is dedicated to our fans worldwide who bought this game on legal way and don’t want to install the trojan from Electronic Arts to play online.
