If you bought 'MOH Limited Edition'. There are a couple of different versions and if you bought from Steam, very high chance you've got the plain Jane MOH that doesn't include early beta access.

Pre-load from Origin, I'd be surprised if it wasn't available - seems to be pretty common on their large releases. If no change of heart on Steam availability, it's where I'll be getting it from.

I've only had experience with Shift2, which at the time wasn't listed on Steam's catalogue. I went ahead and bought it when pre-load was ready from Origin and still no word on Steam. Turns out a couple of hours later, it was made available from Steam.. but I already had it down off Origin's service.

I installed origin to see what its like, which was a bad idea as I couldn't resist purchasing BF3 LE on it

Pre-order details confirmed from the source:
Battlefield Blog

Perhaps someone could edit the original post to add that link?

Pre ordered looking forward to it. Now the question is do I need to upgrade my pc for it? Hope not the bank balance is not that healthy at the moment.

What I have read although not official (specualtion) is that if you can run BFBC2 then you should beable to run BF3 - depending on the system maybe not on high settings.

Should beable to get an idea on the performance when the Beta comes out.

I have a couple of questions. These may have already been answered somewhere but thought I would ask anyway. I have only ever used Steam or bought games by way of CD.

1. To purchase through Origin do I need to have Origin software on my pc, like Steam? I'm guessing yes but am not entirely sure.

2. When buying on origin I take it that it is a download and not a CD sent to me through mail? If this is correct. What happens if my pc dies and i rebuild. Can I then download again from origin like Steam without repurchase.

Just want to make sure I have the correct answers before handing over the cash.

cheers
