There's less than a week to go until the PS3 beta of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 ends. Today DICE shared some statistics about the beta, which 300,000+ players have played since November 19th.
awwwwwwww well looks like i made a mistake just renting uc2, gotta go buy it to hold me over till either gow3,modnation,me2,splinter cell,gt5, or heavy rain come out. EDIT: a new syphon filter announcement would make my entire year.
There's always the MAG beta too, if you're looking for multiplayer shooting.
the MAG beta ended though. awhile ago actually.
im going to get mag its a fun game but its way to static compared to bad co 2. Mag will tie me over till the release of bad co 2 though.
awe. I thought we'd have this until feb. atleast the beta file says that it expires in Feb. =/
It's for the best. People would get burnt out playing it for three months. As is, it's going to be annoying have to level up all over again when the game is released.
Yeah. I guess your right... but 3 MONTHS!? lol >.< lol @ # Total Repair Tool kills = 15.58K # Total Defibrillator Kills = 12.69k stats. The Revive stats are highly inflated due to people abusing it to level up medic class fast. People would just suicide and then let their medic friend keep reviving em =/ Here's to hoping they release their MP demo somewhere in Jan lol
I was hoping they would add some stuff in during the beta, but i guess not.
:'( Awwww, man. I was having a lot of fun with it. Well, hopefully they fix some of the problems between now and it's release, like tank spawn time.
Could I still sign up for the beta? Where?
i couldve played the beta on my ps3, but i despise MP FPS's on a console since ive been bred on PC FPS's since DOOM. i envy you guys. :( im chomping at the bit to play this.
I feel bad about getting a beta key for this game. It's great fun and looks awesome, but I just can't stop playing Uncharted 2. That just might be the best game I have ever played.
Here's a spare beta code i didn't use if anyone is interested. GKRF-QHBG-6HMN
OH HELL NO. You made a damn amazing game. I can't wait till next year DICE.
NOOOOOOOOOOO! This is my crack.:(
I'm glad, the beta was a success for me< i totally enjoyed the game and i'll have to get back into it before it closes get the last minute kills from it. ^^ hopefully when the next Bad company drops they'll do a beta for 360 and PS3 and we'll both be playing this game in Harmony ^^ This game is absolute fun. cant wait to buy the game..
the beta will be on going for the 360 and pc its in their news announcements slated for the beginning of the year :0 Edit I meant demo:
I got into a game last night mid threw and was wondering where my squad was. because i hadnt seen them. These guys where up on the mountain with a mountain of ammo and health trying to level up. Im like wtf that takes skill they told me to beat it and get out of there pile. i cant stand noobs like this @ all. btw i love the game play everyday and ive seen its faults but the beta should help. i just wish you could capture a glitch ingame and send it off instead of trying to run over to the ea forums. And I hate falling inside the map noo
Yeah, falling inside the map sucks. I've only encountered it in one spot. I was trapped there with a medic and he kept rezzing me when I tried to kill myself :/
I'm glad I'm not the only one who has seen this I hope they fix this before the game releases. I was in a game and 2 of my squad members were doing this and I told them if I could kick you out of the game I would. Noobs like this ruin games like this (MW2 anyone), I'll never understand how people would take the time to look for this type of crap only to gain a point or 2 in a video game it only makes you look pathetic.
Yeah, I don't get why people were so eager to level. It's the beta, for crying out loud - all that data's gonna get wiped when the game is released.
Did you guys report the problem to DICE? If you report it, they can fix the issue before launch.
Bring on the PC beta dammit.
Nope, got pushed back a bit.
Nope. They were planning to have it in December but I believe it was postponed. Can't remember where I read about the delay but I'm pretty sure that's the case. So hopefully our PC's will start a new year with some full on Battlefield online madness! :D Edit: Panda's a fast one.
ya they said somethin about wanting to up the player amounts on the servers. Probably also to use the ps3 beta to give pc gamers an updated version with fixes in place. All in all. The ps3 was probably a beta for the pc beta. I limited by time on ps3 so that I could fully enjoy it on pc.
I really like the Beta i cant wait till the full version
There is already a good amount of skill levels of people involved as well as some healthy competition. I can't pick this game up and stop playing after 20 minutes, partially due to the maps last longer than that but also because I just lose track of time and have loads of fun. Can't wait for the PC demo though, mouse and keyboard ftw!
That sucks fancy ending the BETA just before christmas They could have got alot more players and possible future sales if they'd just hold out a little longer, most of the new consoles purchased wont be swtiched on untill december 25th
They might possibly playing it that way. Close the beta for now, debug and play with some of the requests and after the holidays, start it back up with all old and new beta keys. At the beginning of the year the other platforms will start being involved.
I enjoyed the beta very much and I'm going to miss this game until is release.
Than the MW2 final release. The beta has been really nice. Can't wait for retail!
That's a shame. I unlocked all the engineer equipment. :) Engineers FTW!
I finally unlocked the M416 I'm satisfied. Awesome beta.
Played it a few times and that was enough for me to preorder it on Amazon ! Can't wait , till then I'll be enjoying Mass Effect 2 , Conviction and Bioshock in the mean time .
this is by far the best beta i have ever played. i hope they make a mp demo to replace the beta because i am addicted to this game. i have played all of bf games and this one is the best one i have ever played. second to battlefield 2142 to me.
I played ~10 hours in this beta and all I have to say is that I will buy it. But I think it will be the PC version.
I was not overly impressed with MAG and I am less impressed with this game.. Most def NOT a buy....
lemme guess Call of Dooty! best GAME EVAR!!!11!
Yea..you called it right dooty... I despise COD MP...to me one of the worst MP games ever...(I did buy COD for the first time this year since the 360 was launched)
And after playing with unstable and less than 30 fps and jaggies all around, I was completely turned off. You can say its a beta and all, but the final product is almost always a bit better but nothing more.
They might be able to fix the frame rate, but I know that DICE's Frostbite engine doesn't utilize any sort of AA (on the console, at least)
If they don't give it some AA or something to get rid of the jaggies that is a deal-breaker for me.
Hopefully they listen to feedback. Not knowing your health was a big issue for me. Also, the tank situation is bullsh!t. People keep tanks all game long because stingers and RPGs don't do d!ck if you have an engineer hiding behind it repairing the whole time. The fact that you can see outside the tank from a 3rd person view makes it almost impossible to plant C4 on it. Mortar strikes take too long to reload compared to other perks. It actually takes 2 minutes and 2 minutes in this game is like eternity since you can mark your targets(select button) w/o using a mic.
Did you need a code to get into it? That seems like a low number.
Its a private beta, code only
... And it's been awesome... I love the game, already pre-ordered it.. -Still have 3 codes left if someone needs to get in.
i am getting burntout on playing on one map only. it is for the best to ended the beta. thx EA for the memories....
only 6 days left. Gonna play so much of this till the 21st now, wanna try and get most upgrades/gadgets for my weapons.
