Back in July we reported that EA started to send out E-mails to people who would be getting invites to the Battlefield 3 beta in September. EA’s DICE has announced today that the Battlefield 3 multiplayer beta will open to all gamers on September 29, 2011 available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. The beta will be 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 who pre-order the digital PC version of the game at Origin and all customers that pre-ordered a Limited Edition of Medal of Honor will be granted early access to the beta starting on September 27, 2011.
In addition, those who participate in the beta can also log onto Battlelog, the game’s free social media network that allows gamers to communicate and compete with friends, track their stats and share their progress. Battlelog extends the in-game experience to be 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.
