Hacker Group Releases ‘Battlefield 3′ on PC With No Origin Requirements

Battlefield 3 EA Origin Hack Released

While Battlefield 3 itself is a great game (read our Battlefield 3 console review), it’s no secret that for the PC (read: the better) version of the game, EA is on a bender to enforce EA Origin accounts on those who want to play the game – even to users who purchase Battlefield 3 retail editions and not through the digital service. Origin, while required, is still in “Beta” and is well-known for being plagued with problems and customer service issues, and most don’t want to make the transition – a few, even, have boycotted the game because of this.

Now, however, longstanding game hack group Razor 1911 have come up with an executable file fix for Battlefield 3 which completely bypasses the requirement to have an Origin account, allowing gamers all around the world to play without one.

The group – only three years younger than Electronic Arts themselves – have been releasing cracked versions and fixes for loads of video games for over twenty years now, and are recognized worldwide as the number one go-to source for such items. They’re no stranger to the Battlefield series, having released the full version of Battlefield 2142 four days before it was out in stores. They’ve got a tough stance on brutal DRM and EA’s ‘control’ over gamer’s information, unleashing some choice words in their official release statement:

“Razor1911 doesn’t accept and support the online DRM “Origin” from EA. This release is dedicated to our fans worldwide who bought this game [the] legal way and don’t want to install the trojan from Electronic Arts to play online.”

While the crack has been verified to be currently working, it’s likely that Electronic Arts will be working alongside DICE to discover a way to remove the users who aren’t tied to a legit EA Origins account. There’s a chance that players using the crack my get banned from using the client if they’re detected, so if you decide to go out and search for the Razor 1911 fix, be aware.

Regardless of whether you’re playing by EA’s rules or not, here’s some great Battlefield 3 multiplayer tips to enhance your experience on the front lines. There’s probably going to be an influx of users coming in while the Origin bypass is in place, so there’s bound to be some newbies to torment on each server. Let ’em have it!

As Razor 1911 said, “EA Trojan – It’s in the game… ehm… It was in the game!”.

What is your stance on the release? What do you think about the Origin and its requirements?

Of course, this in no way affects those of you who purchased Battlefield 3 for your consoles.

    lol, I hope for those who try this out they don’t lose their online privileges from EA. That is, if EA and DICE figure this out and unleash the banhammer.

    I really don’t like the Origin setup.

  • Daniel Carlson

    How do you ban someone without an account? They could block the IP’s but that would create a pretty big community backlash, especially when future titles through EA are released. GO RAZOR1911!!!! you guys are my freakin hero’s. No one should be forced to use a third party service to play a game. Its as bad as forcing players to be online to play single player diablo.

    • Rad

      I’m sure someone will fix that too…;)

  • DarthMalnu

    I rarely support hacking of any game, but this is one of those moments. Break the shackles boys… just try not to steal anything while you’re at it.

  • ATG

    Gamer’s are a whiney bunch. Idk what to say about this though, doesn’t seem bad really.

  • Rad

    And when they create one for ME3, I will use it on my legally purchased copy since I do not want to play ME3s multiplayer or install EAs spyware. Great work Razor1911!

    occupy EA?

    Honestly? with the whole Origin debacle and the requirement to launch the single-player game through the web-browser… i’m inclined to boycott EVERYTHING EA publishes from now on… period, including all of Bioware’s future releases.

    Do you have anyone who can look over this site http://www.fpscheats.com/topic122941.htm and fix the problem with EA and these Battlefield 3 Hacks? I have four people in my clan using the hack and it’s 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. I’m 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 doesn’t 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… c’mon, 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?

    Today it stopped working… Freakin EA must have found a way and asks for activation if no Origin is open… Anyone else?

    I simply had the awc.dll file in my BF3 folder and working pefectly so far…

  • Dems

    Sorry, it’s still working perfectly. Obviously I had deleting some EA files through a 3rd party cleaner and needed to join just once normally, with Origin open. Then, I re-pasted the awc.dll and everything is working fine.
