EA retreats, offers free Battlefield 1943 after all

PS3 gamers to get promised freebie

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

EA has changed its tune and pledged to give all PlayStation 3 Battlefield 3 customers a free copy of Battlefield 1943, all to avoid embarrassing legal entanglements.

The company issued a statement to say: "There have been some misunderstandings around Battlefield 1943 and Battlefield 3... to address this we are making Battlefield 1943 available free of charge to owners of Battlefield 3 on the PS3 beginning this month."

Earlier this week, a US law firm threatened to take EA to court on behalf of disgruntled gamers who accused the publisher of bait and switch tactics.

The initial promise of a free game was made at E3 earlier in the year.

In order to claim their free copy of Battlefield 1943, customers should visit EA's website from 26 November. ®
