Yep, you read it right! Playstation 3 owners should be jumping for joy as DICE is having a BFBC2 beta beginning November 19th! Here’s the official ink from EA:
Starting 19 November 2009, PS3 gamers will be able to experience the unprecedented action, destruction, vehicular warfare, squad play and open sandbox environments that only Battlefield can deliver.
The Battlefield: Bad Company 2 multiplayer beta will feature the Arica Harbour map, where up to 24 players can compete in one of the game’s four intense multiplayer modes called Rush. This new map displays a superb balance of vehicle and infantry combat, as the American assault unit attacks the Russian army base with full force, advancing further through a beautiful desert town and towards the industrial area in a desperate attempt to overtake the Arica Harbour. Heavy vehicle warfare on the first bases gradually turns into an intense infantry fight as the level progresses, showcasing this best-in-class online war experience.
Gamers can get a taste of this incredibly intense action by a numbers of ways including reserving the game with participating retailers. While supplies last.
How do I get a Beta Key?
For North America – Starting 10 November, participating GameStop locations and Gamestop.com will offer a PS3 beta keys to customers who reserve the game, while supplies last. Beta keys will be available for both online and in-store customers. So reserve your copy now!
