Battlefield 3 Hacked to Work Without Origin?

Hackers have worked out a way to play Battlefield 3 without using the Origin service that EA requires of players of the military shooter sequel, reports Gamasutra. They have apparently acquired the cracked version of the game, saying it includes the following statement: "This release is dedicated to our fans worldwide who bought this game on [sic] legal way and don't want to install the trojan from Electronic Arts to play online." They also say EA has not yet commented on this situation. Thanks Destructoid.

Awesome... Now if only I could get the game to progress past the "Initializing" status. Worked the first day and hasn't since.
Maybe you could try the crack? hah!

Just remember though, you'd be a filthy pirate then. Even though you already own the game.

Do you notice that it opens up Battlefield on your taskbar? Try clicking that on your taskbar.

As much as I admire the sentiment, it seems like a good way to end up banned from playing the game at all. Assuming EA can detect who is doing it and close the loophole.

Sure but to me this news story is as much about protesting the Origin requirement as it is about the actual Origin workaround. Thanks Blue!!

I know this is not the only site reporting this, but it amuses me that a PC game getting cracked is news in 2011. I get that the hubub about Origin is what makes it somewhat of a special mention, but still... of course it was cracked.
