Battlefield 3 to Grace Steam After All?By Kyle Mann | October 4, 2011 | News | 6 comments | Share
Well this is heartening news to any gamers whose hearts are forever intertwined with the magical Steam platform: an anonymous source inside Valve has leaked info indicating Battlefield 3 will arrive on Steam, and just in time too. According to the mystery tipster, Valve and EA have been in talks to come to some sort of an agreement regarding the sale of DLC, which is apparently the crux of the issue.
If these whispers should prove true, one fine October day you’ll boot up Steam to see a nice, snazzy Battlefield 3 splash page gracing your monitor. Of course, based on the Battlelog and Origin integration in the beta version of the game, it is probable that even the Steam version will still require the browser launcher and EA’s new download service to play. Does this matter to anyone at all? While I think it’s a good idea for EA to get one of its most popular franchises on the PC’s most popular storefront, I can’t imagine Battlefield fans skipping out on the game just because there wasn’t a Steam version. All the same, it’d be nice if these rumors panned out and we can put the drama behind us.
