Battlefield 4 beta access details clarified

News has already been been handed down that gamers with a “Battlefield 3” premium membership will be getting access to the “Battlefield 4” beta. This has left fans now inquiring about how to get their beta code. The developer today reassured players that “Battlefield 3” premium members will indeed be sent a beta code for “Battlefield 4” once the beta has actually begun. They went on to state the following, "You won't be receiving a code or beta access until the beta has been released! Don't worry, you won't be left out!" (Battlefield 4, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Definitely looking forward to the Beta and Battlefield 4!! I loved Battlefield 3 and I expect that Battlefield 4 will continue to impress and bring it's A game in the FPS genre.

Because if people tried out a cod game before launch they won't buy it. Bad company 2 had a beta when mw2 came out and it was a ps3 exclusive. And as sucessful as mw2 was more people on ps3 played bad company 2 beta than mw2. Having a beta is risky. Cod games have major patches weeks after a game comes out because of their flaws and failure to test them properly.

Bad Company 2 beta wasn't PS3 exclusive. The Xbox and PC got Arica Harbor and was released on January 28, 2010, and the PS3 got Port Valdez and was released on February 4, 2010.

so why the HELL DO CoD GAMES NOT HAVE A BETA????
HeavenlySnipes  +   353d ago
This is relevant to this article how?
marcoskids  +   353d ago
The final version of CoD games are the betas, y do u think the final versions are always so buggy :P

I wouldn't go defending Battlefield too much though since BF3 is on its 9th patch already and the game is still flawed.

Note: I'm not defending CoD, that s*** is as broken as it gets.

No multiplayer game is perfect, but I think BF3 is as good as it will ever get.

The Beta was pre Cod4 - after that it's just been map packs :)

Hopefully there won't be any server issues on launch day like BF3 had.

Now heres the question. If a person has premium and then bought MoH Warfighter for Battlefield 4 Beta access does that mean that mean that one gets two different iterations of beta or are they screwed and received no real value to their pre-order of MoH because they would have received beta invite anyways since they are premium members? Just some food for thought
famoussasjohn  +   353d ago
They haven't said much, but perhaps MoH buyers will get in early like 2 days or something like the BF3 beta.
DarthJay  +   353d ago
Like everyone else, I want to know the deal for Medal Of Honor: Warfighter owners. They promised early access and it BETTER be different from whatever happens for Premium members. 48 hours, 72 hours, whatever.
NegativeCreepWA  +   353d ago
They were promised an invite nothing more, just because they're naive enough to by a crap game for beta access does mean they deserve anything.
DarthJay  +   352d ago
Actually, the box clearly says it is an "exclusive beta." The case also says for full details I can go to www.medalofhonor.com/bf4-beta, which redirects you to an EA page for the game. So yes, they put language out there that specifically implies there will be something different about the beta Medal Of Honor: Warfighter owners have access to.

The first Medal Of Honor also gave people access the the Battlefield 3 beta and the language on the box was way more shady and talked about the offer expiring in 12 months. The end result was people that had Medal Of Honor had a 48 hour head start on the beta, which people complained about then.

The precedent has been set. They put specific language on the box in very specific words and as to very specifically draw attention to try and get people to buy the game. That language is even more specific than the first game, which gave people a 48 hour head start. That is the expectation, and it is 100% reasonable. Yes, they deserve something, because they were promised something. Why do you think they said people with Premium would get early access AFTER Medal Of Honor: Warfighter was released?

I would have bought the game either way, but I don't see how it is unreasonable to expect what was promised. And yes, it very specifically promised something "exclusive," and with the last game, that was 48 hour early access. Everyone will have access to the beta. So what's the point of saying you'll get a simple invite?

So yes, MOH:W owners deserve something. Anything less is blatant false advertising.

leogets  +   352d ago
