Release group puts out patch for Battlefield 3's EA 'Origin' DRM EA's new hit shooter "Battlefield 3" for PC has been plagued by criticism due to the publisher's forceful inclusion of the "Origin" account, a DRM required to play the game online.
Origin, which is still in beta, has been in the news as it gives EA the rights to access your personal info and practically spy on you. That's without mentioning that Origin is prone to crashing and customer service issues.

Gamers who decided to purchase the retail edition of the game have been having issues, as well, with Origin.

Warez group Razor 1911, patching games since the 1990s, has come to the rescue with a patched .exe.

Says the group:

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.

Install Notes
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1. Unpack
2. Copy bf3.exe to your install folder
3. Have fun!


The fixed .exe is verified working, but it is likely EA is working on an update.

Somehow when I head, "BF" I don't think battlefield; what comes to mind is a kind of rape...very appropriate for this title.

lol how they gonna patch it without origin >.< so likely ea can't do anything and doesn't care because it doesnt affect online players who have to use origin.

Hello,

Do you have anyone who can look over this site fpscheats and fix the problem with EA and these Battlefield 3 Hacks? I have four people in my clan using the hack and its simply not fair the way these guys can see every single enemy on the screen. The last guy using it had 17,000 points and was ranked 50 already. Im currently serving in the Marine Corp and Battlefield 3 is what I do to relax (believe it or not).... but these cheaters have made me so mad. What can I do? It doesnt seem like anything.

I called EA support FIVE TIMES (was on the phone for 90 mins total) and every person I talked to said the game had no hacks out for it. I even sent them to the website and showed them the videos and screens and they said they were fake... cmon, are they serious?

I also tried to post asking for help on the EA Forums and every single time they delete my post. After spending $60 and EA made $5 Million in sales the FIRST WEEK I think a deserving LEGIT player like me deserves some sort of answer about a fix. Can you help?

Regards,
Chris Johnson
