Back at E3 earlier this year, Sony announced that PlayStation 3 owners who purchased Battlefield 3 would get Battlefield 1943 free. When Battlefield 3 was released this wasn’t the case.
Now, EA has officially announced that they will be allowing owners of Battlefield 3 on PS3 to download their free copy of Battlefield 1943. Beginning November 26th, Battlefield 3 users in the Europe with an activated online pass will be able to download the game. North America will be able to download the game on December 10, and Japan on December 17.
It is unfortunate that it took a lawsuit against EA for them to finally give in and honor their original offer.
