No. You do not NEED Steam. Steam is just an option. You can purchase a retail version and it will be stand-alone just like BF2/2142.

No you don't need Steam. You can purchase it on Steam however.

I played one game and the graphics look amazing. Gameplay is also very fun.

You don't even need steam if you preordered it there (for the beta). I just launch from the .exe and it runs perfectly fine.

EDIT: Btw, it's so nice to be able to alt-tab out of a game and not have to worry about it crashing...even in beta.

Awesome, appreciate it!

Now, time to test out this beta.

I got a key, got the game downloaded. But now I'm having random crashes in the main menu. Can't even select a server to play. Any ideas what's going on?

Awesome, thanks for clearing that up guys.

Steam can be sketchy at times from my experience.

I kept telling people that the game isn't that amazing. But noooo, I'm just a CoD fanboy.

I loved the PS3 Beta... thats what got me excited about the computer one... <,<

+1 Game is amazing never dropped below 60fps anywhere on the map and I''m maxed out 1920x1080 all high, 4x AA, 16x AF. I hope future ATi drivers improve performance.

Anyways, anyone knows what HBAO is?

I guess some of you dont realize that aside from developer using us to test their product in beta, we use beta to see if want to spend $50 on the game. If there is no crouching while sniping, and the sniper scope stays foggy/blury...then I may decide not to buy it. Thank GOD for betas!
