If you are planning to buy a retail copy of Battlefield 3 on PC then you probably won’t be surprised to know that you will be required to download Origin before you can play it.
DICE community manager Daniel Matros confirmed as much on Twitter, saying: “Yes those “rumors” are true.”
We are presuming that this means even downloaded versions of the game will also require Origin.
Battlefield 3 is out on October 28, for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. You can pre-order a copy here (PC), here (PS3) or here (360).
