- Keys can be Copy & Pasted into Origin
- Battlefield 3 LE Key: XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX
- Premium Service Key: XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX
The 1st key contains Battlefield 3 Limited Edition, and Back to Karkand map pack.
The 2nd key contains Battlefield 3 Premium Upgrade, and all Expansion packs, and all extras.
I already owned Battlefield 3 Limited Edition when I purchased this
I used the "Premium Service Key" to upgrade my BF3 to Premium, it worked perfectly
just opened origin, clicked on Origin Menu, Chose Redeem Product code, pasted my code, and Viola, I have everything.
I pasted the "Battlefield 3 LE key" into my Son's Origin, and he now has BF3 limited edition, and the Back to Karkand Expansion.
All this costed me the same price as the upgrade alone.
I hope this helps.
Seriously - Origin is just plain bad, there is nothing good about it. It is like a broken version of Steam, with extra suck added in.
Even BF Bad Company 2 had a server browse in game, but this?? This is crap!
All it is is to advertise there products everytime you want to launch BF3.
First, I have to open Origin. and view an EA ad, exit out of ad.
Then, Open server browser in the web browser and look for a server. Once I find a server, I click play.
Next, an addin is required to launch the game??
Then the Origin client receives the data from the built in web browser addon and starts to "Sync" cloud data.
Finally, the game opens to the server you choose.
WTH EA! Why do you purposely make your own game a hassle to turn on. I'm telling you, its for the advertisement.
Even IW is smart enough to keep their game browsers "IN-GAME". God, EA, just leave already, your destroying your own game by design.
As of a few days ago Origin updated and allowed for offline play by selecting 'go offline' from within origin. Rating increased by one star. Also, it does come with a 'multiplayer head start' kit, labelled 'welcome pack' in the Origin addons. I didn't decrease any stars for that(I thought I didn't get a head start kit) so no increase here. The fact still remains that there is no in-game way to select servers and the game must be launched for each individual server you join, thanks to battlelog.

Unless you're a button-masher aficionado, this game is pretty much worthless. I gave it two stars because the graphics are fairly good, and the game runs very well without stalls... Read morePublished 5 hours ago by R. Dean Phelps
