The gameplay of Battlefield 3 includes Cooperative and Multiplayer modes. It has been shown that if you play this game in the Co-op mode you can unlock the additional content of the game. You will see maps in this game which cover Paris, Tehran, Sulaymaniah, Wake Island, Oman and Kuwait also New York. It also includes some urban areas in which you will see some Vehicle Combat. This game has a special set of armory which gives vision to the future weapons also there are lots of missions included in this game. Altogether with awesome graphical detailing this game is a better choice for first person shooter fans. Battlefield 2 Bad Company is another game that you can download.
So I tried to contact EA Help for the first time, where I was told to do all those "may-fix" things (reinstall Origin, clear it's cache etc.) so I did exactly what was requested from me, but it didn't resolved the problem. I was requested to try restart the computer (they went really professional with this one) so I did and it did not help either and after I rejoined the live chat, I was assigned to different advisor so I had to confirm my email and explain everything again. I was requested to reinstall the game to have "fresh" copy, because you know, two days ago my game, which was not updated for quite a while was not fresh enough. So I uninstalled the game and since then I'm not able to download it, I can see either "Details" or "Download" button, which does nothing when clicked (it should open download confirmation dialog). I've checked my other games and I was able to download them without any problems so I said to advisor, that it's something wrong with the game - Battlefield 3 Limited Edition, not with my computer.
Then I've tried to play today but the problem was still there so I contacted EA support again, explained everything again. Then I remembered that I claimed my free copy of Battlefield 3 Standard Edition from the time it was available for free so I was like I'm going to try it. Logged in to that account, hit "Download" button and the dialog popped up and it worked. Went back to my main account, tried Battlefield 3 Limited Edition on my other account but it didn't - same problem - other games work but this doesn't. I've explained everything to advisor and he was still twisting the same BS (check your antivirus, firewall, internet connection, free space, blood pressure etc). I was still repeating myself over and over with fact that other games work fine and even the same one (but not Limited Edition) is working on my different account. After hour of doing pointless things I literally begged the advisor to try add Standard Edition to my account for testing instead of Limited Edition one (we tried to remove Limited Edition and re-adding it but it did not work). And guess what? We tried and it worked, game started to download (Standard Edition) but the Premium Edition was still not working. Advisor asked when if I have another question, I said sure - when I'll be able to play the game I've paid for. Said I need to create another issue with UOTrace and MSInfo logs included,said goodbye and left the chat. I was like OK, I'm going to do it with the links he sent - I've checked the title "Troubleshooting connectivity issues" and literally laughed, how I have connection issues when I'm downloading the game of different edition right now? But as a weekend joke 10/10.
Basically open Origin on your browser and start the download from there. It's downloading here. We probably won't be able to play the game anyway since lots of other people have the game installed but can't start it or connect to servers. Some have said venice unleashed is working fine.
I'm trying to download Battlefield 3 Limited Edition in order to play with a friend and when i press download nothing happens. I tried to close origin and relaunch it and still nothing... I even tried reinstalling origin and the problem is still there.
Had an update to origin yesterday Version 10.5.90.46284-767180 and now BF3 will not download. Download button is there but does nothing. After the update when I went to play it had details instead of play for the button. Clicked on details and nothing came up. Uninstalled the game and now it wont download. Also uninstalled origin and did a fresh install. Other games are fine.
It's not all games, as other games download just fine. Only BF3 appears to be affected in this way and it's defininitely due to recent Origin client changes, as I successfully downloaded it via the windows client in December, without issue. I uninstalled today, to try and figure out why I can't download the Karkand and immediately found I couldn't download BF3. Same issue as the OP.

Several game modes are present, including Conquest, Rush, Squad Deathmatch, Squad Rush and for the first time since Battlefield 1942, Team Deathmatch. However, more game modes are available through the purchase of extra downloadable content packs. The PC version of Battlefield 3 is by default launched via a web browser from the Battlelog web site. A server browser is present in console versions of the game.
During Sony's E3 2011 press conference, Jack Tretton of Sony Computer Entertainment of America announced that the PlayStation 3 version of the game would be bundled with a free copy of Battlefield 1943, however, at launch, the game was not included. EA then said that Battlefield 3 PlayStation 3 owners would receive timed-exclusive DLC for the game instead. On 20 November 2011, Law firm Edelson McGuire took EA to court on behalf of disappointed gamers. The complaint focuses on EA's communication of the change of plan, second proposal with early DLC that had already been announced. Shortly after EA was threatened with being taken to court over its failure to deliver the free game as announced at E3, EA announced they will offer owners of the PlayStation 3 version of Battlefield 3 a free downloadable copy of Battlefield 1943.
Trailer releases gained momentum in the week before the release of the game. EA released a multiplayer trailer which showed the variety of maps available in multiplayer, with short scenes of actual gameplay. It also featured shots of a map that is included in the "Back to Karkand" downloadable content (DLC). EA released a launch trailer, showing off the various missions in the single-player campaign.
EA CEO John Riccitiello stated that Battlefield 3 is aimed at competing with the Call of Duty series. EA planned on spending over $100 million on a marketing campaign for Battlefield 3. Electronic Arts stated that Battlefield 3 is a "flat out superior" to Call of Duty. EA has said it is going on the "offense" in regards to its marketing on Battlefield 3, saying that it started its campaign early to establish a "beachhead". Anyone who had watched a trailer for the upcoming film Act of Valor through the official Battlefield 3 website could receive free downloadable dogtags for use with any version of the game.
Alongside key changes to the gameplay and UI, a new day and night cycle will be introduced, as well as models, maps, and plenty more extra content for the original game. Despite the modding team promising a more tactical experience, Battlefield 3's Reality mod will also allow for over 100 people on a single server, meaning some of that typical Battlefield chaos could also feature should players be so inclined. With fans still disappointed over DICE and EA's handling of Battlefield 2042, they'll likely be glad they can turn to these community projects if they want a Battlefield experience more tied to the franchise's origins. Anyone looking to download the Battlefield 3 Reality mod can do so now from the Venice Unleashed website.
"EA offers games, including Battlefield 3, to all major digital download sites. In doing so, our goal is to not only reach the widest possible global audience with our games, but also to provide ongoing customer support, patches, and great new content," a post to the company's official forum stated. "We are intent on providing Battlefield 3 players with the best possible experience no matter where they purchase or play the game, and are happy to partner with any download service that does not restrict our ability to connect directly with consumers."
EA has claimed that Steam has added a "set of restrictive terms of service" that limits how the company can provide patches and other content. "No other download service has adopted these practices," EA explained. Reading between the lines, it sounds like EA wants to offer patches as well as for-pay content directly to gamers through the games itself. Valve seems to have rules in place that state such content must be sent through the Steam servers.
