EA on when to start expecting your early-access Battlefield 3 beta keys

Posted on September 26, 2011 AT 05:38pm

THE BUZZ: On their official forums, EA posted some information today on when those who get early access to the Battlefield 3 beta (Origin pre-orders and Medal of Honor: LE players) should expect to start getting their beta keys via email.

“Sometime between Midnight tonight (most likely PST timezone) to the early hours of Tuesday morning,” EA forum moderator T0TAL fps noted.

Along with that was this: “Electronic Arts have already started sending out those emails, however most of you will start receiving your emails by midnight tonight (09/26/2011) in order for you to have them in your inbox by tomorrow morning (Tuesday 09/27/2011).”

A follow-up post noted that all emails should be send out by 5AM Pacific. To see what time that would translate to for your specific country or location, here’s a handy chart showing what time that would be in all time zones.

EGM’s TAKE: So, here’s the question—if you’re one of the people who will be getting early access to the beta, will you be staying up to get the email and get into the game as soon as possible?
