Battlefield 3 Beta Release Date Revealed
DICE, the developer of hotly anticipated war sim Battlefield 3, has just lifted the lid on when the official beta of the game will go live. It’s rather soon!
Set to begin officially on Thursday 29th September, the beta will include access to game mode Rush, while the featured map is entitled Operation Metro. The beta itself will be available on all of your major platforms, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
If you’re lucky enough to have pre-ordered the title through Origin or have the Limited/Tier 1 edition of last year’s Medal of Honour, you can get exclusive access two days earlier than everywhere else. Naturally the beta is only available for PC via Origin, which EA is pushing as the new place for all your digital distribution needs. Meanwhile, Xbox 360 and PS3 owners will be able to download the beta via your console’s online platform when it goes live.
The beta will conclude officially on 10th October, and DICE has confirmed that anything you earn in the beta will not continue forward into the main game, as they’re still tweaking things ahead of the 28/10/11 release date.
