Battlefield 4 beta open to all Battlefield 3 Premium subscribers

Battlefield 4 enters beta later this year and word from Origin Russia is that all Battlefield 3 Premium subscribers will receive access. Swallow some salt and judge the evidence for yourself.

Russian Battlefield fan site MyBattlefield grabbed the above screen from Origin Russia. Note the timeline of unlocks on the right side. It goes through all subscription goodies, starting with all Battlefield 3 DLC and ending on Battlefield 4 beta access. (Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Enjoy your 2 day early beta access with limited number of servers which will be full and laggy.
But no worries, you'll have a full week of public beta after.

Someone sounds salty

Very Salty with a side of vinegar.
MurDocINC  +   733d ago
Yes, it's a side effect when dealing with EA.

Premium was one of the best deals around.

And as the short paragraph mentioned, someone really swallowed some salt rofl

Now all the people who said Premium wasn't worth buying will shut up. Getting all DLC for a lower price, alot of Premium exlusive stuff and now the BF4 beta! I'm glad I purchased Premium

Ditto, I don't know why people have such a big problem with season passes

Because the game was £40 and customers shouldn't have to pay extra for more content, i'm sure EA and Dice don't need the money my friend. You've basically paid £100 for a game if you have premium.

I am personally very happy with my purchase for premium but lets be fair here. EA did go an change what they were offering with premium which meant most of the people who originally picked it up weren't getting what they paid for.

I think each map pack was meant to come with 10 new weapons and they stopped after Close Quarters I think. Unless you count the crappy Xbow... I dont.

My issue with Battlefield Premium was that I preordered the game assuming that they would not do that after EA's CEO publicly mocked Call of Duty Elite and promised that EA would do nothing of that sort.

Then, I see Battlefield 3 with Premium being sold for $60 several months later. If I had known, I'd have waited. Unfortunately, I was expecting a similar DLC model to Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

Also, there are now season passes that do NOT include all of a game's DLC (like Uncharted 3). Selling a season pass that does not include all of a game's DLC is about as dishonest as it gets.

Now they say this. Glad I didn't buy Medal of honor just to get access to BF4 beta.

A little sad that no new players won't be able to get to the beta, but I'm not complaining. Premium here, and ready for action!
Zha1tan  +   733d ago
The people who bought MOH warfighter for this are already getting screwed.

Typical EA.

My PS3 is ready!

No need to worry here. Just like BF3, they advertised the beta with MOH. By the time the beta rolled around there were so many ways to get in it, it was pretty much open to anyone who could work a controller.

This premium stuff is starting to piss me off.
I own the 3 DLC packs i like, and now I'm missing out...
Detoxx  +   733d ago
Dont make the same mistake with BF4 and get Premium on launch
artdafoo  +   733d ago
Aside from the turds that are CTF ( thanks for allowing the othet team to spawn 30 feet from the flag DICE ) and Scavenger ( you know a game mode sucks when you have to spend more time looking for a damn gun than PTO ) the DLC was decent enough.
FunkMacNasty  +   733d ago
lets hope BF4 has an actual 'Beta'
..and not just a multiplayer 'Demo'.

let's be honest here, DICE's BF3 'beta' released two weeks before the actual game released. That's not a beta, that's a demo. I'm just hoping that they either drop a legit multiplayer beta build this summer if they plan on launching the game in the fall.

Don't get me wrong, I have loved BF3 since the moment I brought it home last October, and I feel my premium sub has def been worth the money. But all those bugs and issues that BF3 released with could've been minimized had the 'beta' been released in June or July of that year, not the last week of september (when the game came out in Oct!)

So basically everybody who got Medal of Error - Bugfighter paid $60 for two day exclusive access :P
Plagasx  +   733d ago
Please god be true.

I would be an EXTREMELY happy Premium member now.
yodawins  +   733d ago
This is such bs, why did i even buy warfighter? you win this time you deceiving bastards.
OneAboveAll  +   732d ago
So I purchased MOH for no fucking reason.
