These People are Playing Battlefield 3 Right Now!

If you are anxiously awaiting the release of Battlefield 3, then you are definitely not alone. However, some people are lucky enough to be playing the game right now in what is being called the Battlefield 3 Alpha Test.

Aside from the numerous stages of development, a video game goes through something called a beta test before it can be officially launched. The beta test phase is usually very high profile and the public is generally invited to attend, although it is a very small smattering of people who get selected to participate. Battlefield 3 will going through the beta phase later this year, but as for now, people are testing the game in what is known as the ‘alpha phase.’

Many people may have confused the alpha phase with the beta phase set to kick off later this year, and those claiming to be part of it are more than likely full of it. In a post on the Battlefield blog, Daniel Matros, Dice Community Manager said:

It [the alpha test] is a highly tech focused period where the main purpose is to do a number of server related tests in preparation for game launch requiring a set amount of players online to ensure the final experience is much fun and easy as possible.

So there you have it. The game is still not in its beta stages, but come September, it will be and more people will have the opportunity to play this upcoming blockbuster.
