yes, just the premium service:

http://store.origin.com/store/ea/....249982800


you do not need the one that is $34.99, that includes a vanilla (that you already have) key and the premium service key.


BF2 is still a solid game, still a solid population. Still populated mods too, Forgotten hope 2 is an awesome WW2 mod, Project reality is still regularly populated as well. Well worth the $5 if you don't have it.

Awesome. thanks for clearing that up. Yeah i have BF2 also but dont play it anymore since i have BF3. It was an excellent game though, spent many many hours unlocking weapons and gaining rank.

vip00 02-19-2013 02:55 PM

That's funny, wasn't it the guy who runs Origin that was railing on Steam for running 75% off sales? Oh yes it was. [gamesindustry.biz] Gotta love hypocrisy!

bobbyg27 02-19-2013 03:18 PM

I miss the commander system from BF2... although I've heard a lot of people hated it. I dunno why? I was a great commander, spent the whole round on the command screen and only did UAVs, resupply/vehicle drops and artillery strikes when my squad leaders called for it. They would then (generally) follow my orders on points to hold.

So sad they removed that from 3!

Premium edition is now already 5 bucks less than what I paid for two weeks ago? This whole software pricing shit is pissing me off! Seriously!
That's it no more!
I will never buy another game unless it is < $30 with all expansion, DLC, included! Period!

dhaliwalranj 02-19-2013 03:53 PM

Psssh $30? I usually wait til it's below $10. :lol: If you do that for some of these multiplayer games though you're guaranteeing a dead population by the time you get the game.

Backlogger 02-19-2013 04:03 PM

Origin/EA? No Thanks. Good deal though.

rev2221 02-20-2013 11:03 AM

Woooooooo finally get to buy premium. Not being able to buy though greenman was heart breaking because of the debit card BS. Thought I would have to wait a lot longer for another deal on this. See you all on the battlefield.

xfachx 02-20-2013 11:18 AM

I bought the Russian CD Key for BF3 a while back. Would I be able to convert it to the US version if I purchase the Premium Pack from this sale?

randomtofu 02-20-2013 07:22 PM

Still too much. Needs to be $20.

flecko 02-20-2013 09:01 PM

dangit, I got BF2 for 9.99 the other day. How does it compare to BF3? I heard BF3 is buggy.

Battlefield 2 is a great game.

I would never buy it from Origin though. You can get a CD version with the manuals and everything for ~$8. Much better deal imo.

Greenmangaming had BF3 Premium edition for $30 so I guess this is a good price.

i got BF3 basic a while ago. and if i get the premium, can i sell the basic BF3 with key on ebay?

thanks in advance.

depends if you've redeemed it in origin client yet.
if not, i suppose you could, altho i'm not sure if its allowed. (I dont deal with ea/origin personally)

Ryuk 02-20-2013 10:09 PM

I don't have neither BF3 Basic nor BF3 premium, so is it worth it to spend $20 more for the premium edition?

also does Origin client (with this game installed) has offline mode like Steam or I have to be online whenever I wanna play this game?

Thanks in advance...

Why don't you just wear a headband that says "Nothing holier than CoD" while you're at it lol.

I don't think it's a problem of losing or having trouble gaining people, I think it's a way to let people try new games they may have not played. I picked up Crysis 2 recently on a sale....just because it's old doesn't mean I won't try it. Everyone has their own opinion, but I've been a huge fan of the BF series and play some of the older ones when I have the urge.

Perfect example: Rome Total War, released in 2004. It's my favorite RTS of all time, and it still pulls new players in to this day. The release of RTW2 later this year will be an epic event people have waited years for.

sketchfactor 02-20-2013 10:22 PM

I wish the DLC for battlefield 3 would go below $30 already lol

ArthurStreeter 02-20-2013 10:34 PM

So when this is purchased on the Origin website, it's forever attached to your account? Wanted to pick up a copy for my brother as a gift.

Slashinhobo 02-20-2013 10:42 PM

Wish it was on steam. I like to have my games all in one place.

Can't comment on getting the premium edition as I'm pondering whether or not to get it. But BF3 has to be played online. Even to launch the game you have to use their stupid online interface. I haven't heard of or tried to do any offline playing so perhaps it would work but I doubt it.

newroyale 02-20-2013 11:38 PM

good deal, the jerk from origin ran his mouth about steam dropping prices and he does the same, sad. I would buy this, great deal! but too bad it's not on steam! thanks for posting

trimethaphan 02-20-2013 11:42 PM

So, I don't really care to play this game online. I just wanted to play the campaign. I'm new to all this pay as you go type games since I only deal with steam. Do I buy just the original game for 9.99 or do I buy the expansion packs to get the full game play?

QuestorJones 02-20-2013 11:44 PM

Is the Vietnam expansion pack worth $5? I ask because sometimes I find the expansion packs for games don't really add a whole lot (and also seem a bit disjointed compared to the original release).

I think its a pretty good expansion and i paid about 10 few months ago. Definitely worth 5 bucks. I got a better value out of the expansion then i did out of bf3 for $15.

Agreed. Typical EA. I loved BF2 and played BF3 for a few months. But did not care for the perk system or the buggy nature of the Origin client.

EA really shot themselves in the foot when they left steam. Like they said on South Park, in order for society to thrive we need gods and clods. Guess which one EA Origin is...

You just need the base game. They have not made any changes to the single player game since it came out, other than bug fixes.

Premium only applies to the multiplayer.

Be warned, the single player is not long at all.

Yes, you can play the single player campaign in offline mode. You just have to switch Orgin to offline mode before lauching battlefield 3.

You might be good, but bad commander ruin things.

I got one trying to kill me because I try tell him where to launch airstrikes, he seems doesn't want suggestions. I ended up throwing him a grenade to kill him and left the game.

Fair warning - BF3 online is full of hackers. Just youtube BF3 multiplayer on pc it to find out. There's still a good amount of legit players but the hackers ruin the game.

Just as long as any other 5 star shooter out there, 5.5 hours(On exper/hard)...

Dasmittyman 02-21-2013 04:11 AM

Origin client is just like steam. If your computer is that bad to not be able to switch in between clients(hint double click of the mouse button) then why bother commenting in the thread? EA hasn't been on steam since Mass effect 2, no change there. Resource issues? Shut down steam and only have origin open or the ladder.As for the EA complaining about the sale, ya inset foot into mouth. Then again, DICE has a say some where when BF3 goes on sale.

dqniel 02-21-2013 04:42 AM

I absolutely hated Origin when I was playing the beta. Has it improved at all since then?

It's alright. They are trying to emulate the interface that one would get if you threw GoG.com and Steam in a blender. Cloud storage, buddy list, chat options, etc. BF2 is still heavily played online for the fanbase. Lots of good servers on there that are near capacity.

EDIT: BF:V is not up on Origin that I can find.

BF2 is still a solid game, still a solid population. Still populated mods too, Forgotten hope 2 is an awesome WW2 mod, Project reality is still regularly populated as well. Well worth the $5 if you don't have it.

is that link for the PC, or will it work on consoles too? i need to get Premium for the PS3, but i don't want to shell out the cash for a second game copy.

Just PC.

RyneP 02-21-2013 05:20 AM

I'd recommend BC2 + BC2 Vietnam over BF3 any day. BF3's extremely groggy in-game, not to mention having to deal with Origin and the web browser is a complete pain in the ass. The only thing it has on BC2 are jets, so unless that's a selling point for you I'd recommend the predecessor over it completely.

bah, if that's the case. although, when you add it to the cart, it does not say PC under the console/system column, unlike the $9.99 version of the game.

trying to post on #battlefield3 for an answer, but it seems that twitter's having issues at the mo.

Absolutely correct. Its really bad. When I gave up on BF3 a couple months ago it was when a hacker was in god mode and about 4 of us surrounded him shooting and he didnt die. Just bounced around as the bullets hit him.

I don't understand why game companies have gotten so bad at stopping hacks. Especially now when all games can be instantly updated at launch like BF3 does.

I've always wanted to get into these games.

Should I save a few bucks and get BF2 to start off, or go straight for BF3?

Sweet, I wanted to try this on the PC. I got it for xbox but I don't have premium.

If you don't mind old games then you could start off with BF2. To me I'd rather play the newer game.

TheLoCoRaven 02-21-2013 10:46 AM

BF3 for pc is the best!! I've never played BF2142, its pretty much the only one I don't have. Does anyone still play that?

NOOOO!!!! haha. I have all of them but 2142. BF2 is good. But BF3 blows it away if you have a PC that can take it. Spend more for the real deal. BF2 isn't even the Frostbite engine let alone Frostbite 2 . . .

And that comes from someone that played BF2 all through college.

gian2ooo 02-21-2013 11:04 AM

Thanks OP, purchased BF2 yesterday.. and purchasing 2142 today.. I don't even know why..

Now I'm reading this thread and hearing all these great comments for BF2.. and so I got it.. But I'm wondering.. Did anyone even play BF2142?? I LOVE that game!! It's soo awesome. It had this certain something that.. I purchased a bunch of recent other games(natural selection2, forge, CS:GO, Chivalry) and really I know I am just trying to relive the experience I had with 2142 - but i'm still looking...

I guess I'm kinda hoping BF2 totally blows BF2142 away.. and that's why I haven't seen any comments on it.

Anyway like I said, I don't even know why I'm purchasing BF2142... I doubt I'm going to play it with all these games I have in my queue.. especially with BF2 downloading.. I really think I'm doing it as a 'pledge' or donation to such an awesome game and good times!

Nope, I just added the BF3 premium edition, it added three items to my cart then it checked out fine like that. Only reason maybe why its doing that for you is that you already have that game on your account?

Highlife26 02-21-2013 11:40 AM

I'm debating purchasing the BF3 Premium DLC for $30 but is it worth it? Can anyone who currently plays the Premium stuff comment? Just trying to decide if the additional maps and gear are worth $30.

Me personally, played BF2142 a hell of a lot more that BF2. I will probably be buying 2142 during this sale. I have all BF2 content via steam, but have maybe played an hour total.

People can hate on 2142 all they want, but I thoroughly enjoyed it when it was big.

WhyYouLoveMe 02-21-2013 01:16 PM

In for BF2! :)

I just found out BF2142 was released after BF2... :confused:

So BF2142 is actually newer. I loved BF2142.. Now I don't know why I would go and start playing BF2..

I should probably go and jump straight to BF3.. and even though I have a 'gaming' laptop... It really sucks to play online multiplayer games when I feel like my computer is lagggging and I get killed a helluva more times than I think I should be.. Maybe I'm just no good. But its always in the back of my mind.

Anyway.. good thing I purchased 2142 then. I actually didn't even play the expansion so I'm still excited. I just hope there's still plenty of people playing it. :woot:

Absolutely correct. Its really bad. When I gave up on BF3 a couple months ago it was when a hacker was in god mode and about 4 of us surrounded him shooting and he didnt die. Just bounced around as the bullets hit him.

Oh please. There is not a mp shooter out there without hackers. Big deal switch servers I have tens of servers in my queue. Besides, I seldom see hackers its not like there's one on every server not more nor less than normal. Don't let this ruin your experience

dun dun dun....maybe it's the end of it's life cycle....*cough*BF4?? :D

Would totally do this if I didn't already own BF3 on PS3 and PC :(. I didn't have the premium but it would be nice. Right now I have the Russian Version of BF3 on PC from urlhasbeenblocked so I'm just gonna assume Premium itself won't work.. if it would, whatever, not gonna bother. The game indeed is near the end of it's cycle, with BF4 hopefully out by the end of the year. I may need to upgrade my graphics card! Only at a GTX 460 right now but yeah, Great deal none the less.

Who plays battle hack anyway? Wouldn't put it on my kids machine, even though kids are the only ones playing it anymore. Used to hop on bf1942 servers just to kamikaze my planes.

The only thing it has on BC2 are jets, so unless that's a selling point for you I'd recommend the predecessor over it completely.

And besides, in BC2 you can still fly helicopters. Or in my case, fly helicopters backwards and crash them into the ground.

Anyway, for people wondering if BC2 is any good or not, just a reminder not to mix up BF2 with BC2. BF2 has old graphics.

I'm out of the loop, I've never played anything on Steam or Origin yet. Do people with the DVD, Steam, or Origin access the same servers as one another? Do people still play the bonus content and add-ons enough to make the extra content worth it over the main game (BF3)? My nephew wants me to get in on some of this but I'm embarassed to ask him my noobile questions : ]

Not sure if I can take advantage of this deal or not since my machine is still about 2-3 weeks from being put together.

Slayn 02-22-2013 12:39 AM

Ok so Steam and Origins are like stores that sell games and allow you to access them. You have an account on something like Steam and basically you use that account to play games. Battlefield 3 is not on Steam, it REQUIRES Origin to play. So basically regardless of where you buy BF3 for the PC, you will all play together.

As for the add-ons, I actually only have the main game. I think people either play the original game or the newest add-ons. I have heard some of the earlier add-ons no one plays. I have the first add-on actually, the Karkand one. I didn't see many servers.

I bought the game the first day it came out and it was worth $60 for the original game, I would say the game+dlc is easily worth the $35. Good luck on the new computer! You can purchase it now and install it later.

How is the BC2 community? I want to buy the game but no point if the game is dying.

It really is a very active online community still. There are tons of servers and many of them stay full most of the time.
The game is well worth whatever it is on sale for.
I bought it at $19.99 long ago, then bought BF3 and stayed with BC2 because it's better, to me. I play both now, but more BC2.

That's BFBC2, not BF2.

Also, the Vietnam add-on is good, but that isn't anywhere near as popular anymore. Most servers stay empty. But for $5 it's worth it even if just for the few servers that stay busy.

I need to qualify the above: I play on Steam, I don't know if playing through Origin means different servers, or what. I'm not a big gamer.

I bought limited edition, preorder, and when I bought Premium edition ($29.99) I only installed the key for the DLC add-ons. Not the main game. So I had no problems.

I also have an extra key for the main game.

I completely agree with this. I have both and have tried hard to like BF3 but I still spend more time on BFBC2.

If they came out today, knowing what I know about both, I would pay $60 for BFBC2 over paying $30 for BF3.

What's the difference if you buy the deluxe edition BF:BC2 for $15 or buy both of the $5 ones?

Bad Company 2 Deluxe Edition: $14.99

Bad Company 2 - $4.99
BC2: Vietnam - $4.99
