Battlefield 3


THE BUZZ: Well it’s official! After months of speculation, DICE revealed the official start date of the Battlefield 3 beta.

The beta will begin September 29th on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. The news was revealed on the official Battlefield 3 Twitter page:

“Join the Battlefield 3 Multiplayer Beta on September 29th!”

For Medal of Honor owners the closed beta will begin September 27th, if you have your code.

The beta is set in Paris on the Operation Metro map, where players work their way from lush parks on the outskirts of the city to a dark, bombed-out metro station, to the vibrant streets around the Paris stock exchange.

Two elite tactical units square off in the series’ popular Rush Mode. One side takes the offensive by attacking M-COM stations while the opposing squad defends and protects.

Gamers in the beta can also log onto Battlelog, the game’s free social media network that allows players to communicate and compete with friends, track their stats and share their progress. Battlelog extends the in-game experience by being accessible anywhere, whether on a PC, console or handheld device.

Players are also invited to join the EA Gun Club for the latest shooter news, and to receive in-game benefits including access to the M1911 pistol, and distinct badges in Battlefield 3. The M1911 pistol will also be available to registered Battlefield veterans.

EGM’s TAKE: Let us all rejoice! Begin the countdown to September 29th.

What’s the first thing you are going to do when you download the beta?
