No. Only STEAMWORKS games use keys that can activate on steam regardless where you buy it.

This is EA we're talking about. None of their games are steamworks.

Curious how people that 'love' steam don't know a simple thing like steamworks.

i would love for it to be on steam but i wonder how battlelog will work with steam
post #94 of 205
I have a feeling it will require origin, battlelog as well as steam. This will just be one more drm you have to go through. Much like Ubisoft drm and gfwl, sure their on steam but their drms arent going anywhere.

It does require Origin, even if you buy a retail copy.

I knew it would happen, but Steam users will have to use BL and maybe Origin anyway.
We'll see the details if this happens.
