Battlefield 3


 

THE BUZZ: At the moment Battlefield 3 is only available digitally via EA’s Origin service, however a few hints may point towards a Steam release occurring at some point.

The first clue comes from a competition currently being held on the Sapphire Select Club’s website which lists one of the prizes as, “[o]ne (1) PC Game code for Battlefield 3, redeemable for the game on Steam,” this could just be a mistake on their part though.

The second comes from the Battlefield 3 PunkBuster install file, a few lines of code mention Steam:

C:Program Files (x86)Electronic ArtsBattlefield 3
C:Program Files (x86)SteamSteamAppscommonbattlefield 3
C:Program FilesSteamSteamAppscommonbattlefield 3
C:Program FilesElectronic ArtsBattlefield 3

Again this could just be the team not bothering to remove the original lines of code.

EGM’s TAKE: It appears that all the evidence points to a Steam release for Battlefield 3 at some point.
