After months of wondering whether the whole debacle between Valve and EA would mean no Battlefield 3 on Steam, we’ve finally got it confirmed: EA has announced that BF3 will not be on Steam, and they’ve given their reason in a forum post to fans:

Quote
“Gamers can pre-order Battlefield 3 at Origin.com as well as over 100 digital retailers worldwide. EA offers games to all major download services. Unfortunately, Steam has adopted a set of restrictive terms of service which limit how developers interact with customers to deliver patches and other downloadable content. No other download service has adopted these practices.”
Steam’s terms of service were the reason why Crysis 2 was removed from the digital retailer earlier this year (later, more games were removed). Many speculated, including us, that it was simply EA trying to promote Origin, but this proved to be false, after Battlefield 3 was revealed to be available on many digital retailers across the globe.
 Many gamers were waiting to pre-order Battlefield 3 until it was available on Steam, but this looks to have been a waste of time. Despite the bleak news, EA says that they are hoping to work out an agreement with Steam.
 Last week, game analyst predicted that the lack of Battlefield 3 on Steam would cost EA 100,000 BF3 copies less sold.

EA confirms: Battlefield 3 won’t be on Steam

Pretty obvious but some good points:

DICE has documented the five Battlefield 3 multiplayer modes. They are Team Deathmatch, Squad Deathmatch, Rush, Squad Rush and Conquest.

Each of the five modes can be played on each of the nine Battlefield 3 maps available at launch.

Team Deathmatch supports two teams of 12 players (24 in total). The goal is to reach a kill-count before the other team. There are no vehicles in Team Deathmatch.

Squad Deathmatch is for four teams of four (16 in total). Again, the goal is to reach a kill-count before the other squads. An Infantry Fighting Vehicle can be used. An Engineer can repair it.

Rush is for 24 players on console and 32 players on PC. The goal is for the attackers to destroy all M-Com stations, and for the defenders to kill all the attackers. Defenders have unlimited tickets (respawns). Attackers gain tickets by destroying M-Coms.

Rush has lots of vehicles, including transport vehicles, armoured vehicles, helicopters and jets.

Rush was available in Bad Company 2 but has been tweaked for BF3. You cannot use explosives on or shoot at M-Com stations, you can only arm or disarm them. If all the attackers die after an M-Com is armed, the game continues until it blows up or the defenders disarm it. If a defender begins disarming just before the timer runs out, the explosion will be prevented until the disarm is finished. If a defender is shot and killed while disarming, the M-Com will instantly blow.

Squad Rush is for two teams of four (eight in total). It's the same as Rush but more intimate. There are only two bases with 1 M-Com station per base. There are no vehicles in Squad Rush.

Conquest is for 24 players on console and 32 on PC. This is the famous all-out Battlefield warfare mode. Big maps, all the vehicles. The idea is to capture and hold flags. Doing so drains the opposing team's tickets. The first team to run out of tickets loses.

Those are the base multiplayer modes. But you can tweak them. You can opt for Infantry Only and get rid of vehicles; you can select Hardcore Mode to remove the game's interface help.

I like the sound of the new features i.e not being able to blow up the mcom and having more time to defuse if in the middle of doing so.

Ive never been a massive fan of conquest since the Bad Company days though.

nice changings, but they forgot about the most important
destroying a house = no more mcom station inside

people will now use helis, tanks and even planes to destroy them, not sure if that should be good lol



gabba what about the warfare mappack?
are they included in the 9 maps or are it more maps when you add them to it

also what about the 64 players? all i can read is 32

I assume you cant blow up the house either. I imagine it would surive in the rubble.

Not sure how the map packs will work. Do you get it on pre-ordering? Id of thought that was in addition to the 9 maps.

64 players was confirmed for PC for Conquest. 32 for Rush I believe. Smaller maps and numbers but jets still included for console.

i see

yeah when you preorder the game you get the physical warfare mappack or how its called automatically
maps like strike at karkand, gulf of oman and wake island from bf2 / former bf titles should be in there
i guess they will add to the 9 current maps

there are also other additional pre-order packs you can get
a dogtag customization pack
a starter weapon pack (means you start with a few higher unlock weapons right from the start)
a camo-pack coming with some camo-suits to hide

well neither of the 3 is worth it except the last one
i need to mention that all 3 of them will be unlocked for everyone either through playing the game (starter weapon) or through ea a bit later in the game
so theres nothing you really miss out and definitely no reason to order at gamestop for higher prices just to get those "exclusive" packs which everyone will have after a certain time ;)
