Report - BF3 Premium Members Will Not Have Access to Battlefield 4 Beta

MP1st - Since the official reveal of Battlefield 4 beta access through Medal of Honor: Warfighter first print, EA has confirmed that there will be other ways to access the beta, but it seems being a Premium member isn't one of them. (Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Hard to tell
Is this rumor true? Rumor votes 14

Kinda shitty EA... I mean you ask your loyal followers to pony up cash equal to a new game for BF3 Premium and yet you give no future code to BF4 beta and instead I have to buy your shitty Medal of Honor game? Gotta love marketing.

I agree with you that Premium members should be getting a beta code for BF4 but at the same time we are getting so much DLC for BF3 it's crazy. I think that $49.99 is worth it for the premium if you are a BF fan.

But they should give us the beta. After all, whoever purchased Premium must be a BF fan. Casuals will not spend on it.

it will have open beta. the early access is 48 hrs only. doesnt bother me as servers will be horrid on the innitial opening. ;)

I disagree letting 800,000 people access the beta would be kinda bad
How are you going to get people's opinion?
Dlacy13g  +   1136d ago
Hold the phone... (If I am interpreting you incorrectly then I am sorry) Are you saying getting 800,000 BF3 Premium players into the Beta would be worse than getting XYZ number of players that get access because they bought a different game?

Being very honest, IF this was actually a real Beta then EA and Dice should be trying to get BF3 players into the Beta because they would have the most to add in terms of Beta feedback...NOT some joker who buys Medal of Honor and gets access as a perk.

Clearly this "Beta" is nothing more than what is becoming the norm and that is "Beta" offerings as pre-order / purchase incentives.

I agree with yoyo12121. Besides people bought BF3 Premium Membership and not BF4's.

Its EA can u expect better?
ChocalateDog203  +   1137d ago
Pretty much this, when I heard of a BF4 beta I didn't think for a moment I'd be getting anything for "free." And it wasn't in the promises Premium gave so I see no reason to be pissed.

Oh well, I'm sure it'll go public, and when it does we'll see if it can beat BF3.

Wow that just seems kinda messed up even though it wasn't promised for the premium service but it would make it more worth the price even though it already is.
MacUser1986  +   1137d ago
That's umm...kind of ridiculous to be honest.

I don't play either Call of Duty or Battlefield but that's kind of a stab in the back to there loyal fans who put down extra cash for that subscription price especially if they have Xbox Live which also costs money.

Glad I didn't buy premium.
AO1JMM  +   1137d ago
Why?

It is still worth it for the price of the map packs alone.

Lol get owned
Xx-ADITYA-xX  +   1137d ago
No.
KingOptimusOrigin111  +   1137d ago
BOOOOO!!!! It should be offered to BF3 Premium Members.

"Keep in mind, this piece is labelled “report” as this is in no way official confirmation since many different EA representatives handle the Battlefield’s official Twitter account."

One would hope this is false information or that is just pathetic.

When I signed up for Premium, I had no promises about a BF4 beta. Nothing gained, nothing lost.
ExCest  +   1132d ago
Pretty much
ginsunuva  +   1137d ago
Don't worry this is probably 2 days early access like all the other times. Are there people in this world who really need a beta 2 days early?

Plus what happened to betas being legit testing groups, not advertising.
Sainox16  +   1137d ago
Wow kinda shitty
Abdou23  +   1137d ago
That kinda sucks,EA reputation keeps getting one hit after another.
RedDeadLB  +   1137d ago
They kinda got enough already.
MiamiACR21  +   1137d ago
They are announcing that the only way into the early beta is through pre-ordering Medal Of Honor Warfighter. This is a simple marketing tactic, because if you read the article and their quotes, they do not confirm or deny that premium members will not be able to access it. But I will tell you right now premium members will be granted access, but ONLY after they have what they deem 'Appropriate' pre-order numbers for their new Medal of Honor game.

People are so stupid... Premium is giving people exactly what's Dice said it would give people. People got exactly why they paid for. Awesome content in the form of 5 dlc maps, guns and vehicle... Now stupid entitled nerds are trying to get something for nothing.
iamlegend9999  +   1137d ago
oooooh, people are gonna be mad. lol
NYC_Gamer  +   1137d ago
People who brought premium are getting what they paid for BF3 content...EA/Dice never promised anything other than that to be honest...
glennco  +   1137d ago
after the last MoH/BF3 beta debacle why would anyone preorder for the next one.
AusRogo  +   1137d ago
Doesn't bother me. Love Battlefield and I'm saving money with premium, and ill be pre ordering later on for Warfighter. Don't know why people are saying Warfighter will be shitty, the first one was good and Warfighter can only improve.
Huarle  +   1136d ago
What's the point anyway. I'm pretty sure it's going to be an open beta again, the MOH guys only have a headstart.
gamerpeeknet  +   1136d ago
And anyway why should the premium of BF3 game get the access to the BF4 beta. In my opinion this rumor is pointless, why would anyone even expect to get it this way. I wasn't even thinking this way... Premium is like the map packs and nothing more + they would said already if the Premium players will get it.
Emilio_Estevez  +   1133d ago
Did it say somewhere that they would? They'll prolly throw it in if people make a stink anyway
