Battlefield 3 has just been released in some countries, while the European release is officially slated to be unlocked on Friday 28th. Well, if you can’t wait until then, let us tell you that you can use a VPN to unlock the game earlier. What’s more interesting though is that there won’t be any restrictions or penalties if you decide to use this method of unlocking your game. Yeap, that is coming directly from the EA Support Team – no, don’t laugh as we don’t think that this is a misinformation.
Additionally, the release of the game has moved on to 24th as some users got emails from Origin, saying that their release date was changed to today.
Of course EA won’t admit that everyone can pretty much activate the game via this method. If they officially did, everyone would rush and there would be an unusual overload to their servers. The official word right now though is that there won’t be any penalties.
Here’s how you can unlock the game:
1) Get FlyVPN
2) Used a Korean IP from the VPNA free password.
3) On Monday at 8am PST, sign into the VPN, choose a Korean IP, then activate your game.
As we all know, the activation is basically a time check. By doing this, the game ‘sees’ that you are “in Korea” and sends you the encryption key. This will unlock the game, and then you are free to play it.
