EA’s support wing has confirmed that you can expect Battlefield 3’s BETA to kick off in October this year.
I bought MOH. It's wasn't that good but atleast I have access to the BETA. Can't wait. Wonder if the PC beta and console ones will start off simultaneously?
i was expecting something sooner but i guess betas and game releases are always close together
Ahhhhh damn. I was hoping for we would get to see some kind of gameplay footage soon, but it looks like we will have to wait until E3 probably.
I was expecting it to be alot closer then the release date.Thats terrible.I think alot of people bought MOH just to get early access to the beta but thats not an early access at all.Im glad we will get the beta but seriousley what a sham just to get people to buy there game.
Medal of Honor? Oh, you mean that game that came with the Battlefield 3 beta?
They probably will be a private beta just before it. This one is most likely the public beta. Also if this is a true beta test and not just a demo then I don't see how BF3 will launch this year. It seems it'll be an early 2012 game.
I was hoping it would be sooner. Oh, well. Can't wait and all that.
It's not even true: http://n4g.com/news/699385/...
I'm always down for a beta. Can't wait.
This is still unconfirmed, just an EA slip up but most likely is inaccurate. Ignore.
Well, according to what MoH's BF3 beta offer said, it should be within 12-months after MoH's release (i.e. Oct 2010 -> Oct 2011) So... I guess october makes sense? Maybe they're going after CoD more strongly than I thought.
holy crap thats a long way off.
Enough time to build a new rig.. Oct, 4th bring it on my b-day c'mon dice!!
So why couldn't Treyach provide a closed or public beta for COD:BO? Seems most reputable devs are putting the public first. For this reason alone i respect the devs enough to try their games before i pass judgement.
just remember one thing people....its Battlefield 3 not Bad Company 3....ive talked to sooooo many people who think its bc3 when its not....its a sequel to bf2 which is completely different to bad company.
cant wait for this :D
While I really liked BF:BC2 and am looking forward to BF3, I dislike how Dice releases betas only a few weeks before release. At that point isn't the game pretty much done and ready to ship? I guess it could be beneficial to find small bugs and stress test the servers but they seem to really cut it short with their scheduling.
They do it to stress test servers and whatnot. Bug testing is probably internal and balancing issues are usually a long-term process after the game is shipped.
I'm so pumped for this game!
Glad to hear that there is a beta coming! It just sucks that its 8 months away...:(
From DICE: "The announcement for the #BF3 beta will be communicated through our Official Channels. Not by any other channel on Saturday...." http://twitter.com/zh1nt0/s...
So this date is bull? Good to hear, hope it comes out sooner.
It's "bull" but since it's an official EA twitter account, it's kind of a curious date...it might be true which sucks but I expected it in August or September so one more month isn't horrible
I don't know I'm kinda weary of this @SupportEA account. The official @EA account recently started following them, but there is also a @AskEASupport account too. Why do they have all these support twitter accounts?
I would just wait zh1nto or DICE to be the final word....leave it as: The beta starts in October....maybe? when referring to the start date
MoH had the best campaign in FPS history in my opinion. But yeah, BF3!!!!! :D
mark my words the beta will be on the ps3 first since ea and dice have sided with sony....I hope ea learned their lesson since the MOH beta didn't show up for two months on the 360 and gamers lost intrest that hurt MOH sales. I hope the beta is better than that MOH.
how do you join the beta?
i have medal of honor but i didn't get the beta .....
why does everyone hate on MoH? The game is pretty good.
... still too far away lol. I want it know
What? October? I wish I could hibernate through summer >_>
