PlayTM writes: "The latest in the phenomenally successful Battlefield series, Bad Company is something of a departure for developers DICE. Not only is it the first in the series to be designed specifically for consoles but it'll also be home to the strongest single player campaign element found in the series so far. However, for the purposes of this preview we're going to be focusing on the area the series is famous for, online multiplayer.
It's becoming almost expected now for high profile shooters to offer some kind of multiplayer beta and Bad Company is no exception. For those lucky enough to have access codes the beta offers a tantalising look at one of the game's multiplayer modes, Gold Rush, and two of the maps."
