Battlefield 3 Beta Released Today!

Posted 27 September 2011 - 01:59 PM

Hey guys, in case you don't know already, that Battlefield 3 beta has been released on PC, Xbox and PSN. At least on PC, to get the beta you must have purchased Medal of Honor Limited edition when it came out. So, who's getting the beta? Since I was one of those who purchased MoH Limited edition, EA Origin sent me an email giving me a product key and told me to install Origin. I should have Battlefield 3 downloaded pretty soon. If you guys do plan on getting the beta, do note that it's a 3.9 GB file and will take a little while to download. I'll be making some gameplay videos and uploading them on my youtube channel. Also, I guess since I'm here, if you guys was want to add me in BFBC2 my username is TerryJune. See you guys on the battlefield :)

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I'll be perfectly honest, by forcing PC users to get BF3 via Origin and not Steam, it killed all my interest in picking it up on one of Steam's holiday sales and turned it into a "might pick it up for my PS3 next year and never play it because I hate console FPS games" game (a MPIUFMPS3NYANPIBIHCFPSG Game, for short).

I may end up getting it anyway, but chalk up another whine for Origin. I hate having multiple services, and if I ever decided to actually choose one, Steam would handily win. I've had enough issues with EA's online services already.

I feel the same way about having muliple accounts. When I made my EA account last year, before Origin, they added me to it. I never really had the choice.

I have to say, this FPS game is pretty unique (well, as unique FPS games can be). They have managed to have a flight simulator, FPS game, driving/tank game, FANTASTIC art, and mash that all together into one amazing experience.

I pretty much play video games that have those "WOW" moments. Pretty much everything in the COD series don't have that. However, I've had plenty of amazing times in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 where I jumped up and said "holy crap did you just see that?!".

IKR!!!! I love Battlefield for all those reasons and despise COD for not having them. I just played some BF3. There are a lot of bugs to work out, but it's still f***ing awesome. Right now though you can only play rush and one map unless invited to a conquest server by someone already on a conquest server. I also liked how I was capable of join a server, through a website. I would look at the servers on it and press a button that would launch the game. Also, I didn't say this in my original post, but you only get to play multiplayer in the beta. The servers are also really laggy, but it's still in beta and have bugs to fix so I can understand. When I was playing there were already people at level 12 already. They must have a lot of free time :D

The game is releasing in a month, if you pre-order, you will not have access to the beta.

COD != Battlefield if that's what you mean by another FPS shooter. I like Battlefield better.

lol, everybody knows that COD is nothing like Battlefield. I prefer Battlefield over COD due to all the functionality, and even though it doesn't really matter, the graphics as well.

COD and Battlefield are two different types of FPS. Battlefield goes for the more realistic strategy game while COD is more of an arcade, run and gun, Rambo style shooter. Both have their benefits and their faults, but like you, I prefer Battlefield.
