'Battlefield 3' beta starting in September
Tuesday 26 July 2011
Battlefield 3 will open up its testing to the public in September, says the series's community manager Daniel Matros.
With the game due to launch on PC, PS3 and 360 during the week of October 25, the PC version is currently in a closed, invite-only testing phase.
Video footage from the closed alpha has been swift to appear on YouTube, with the Battlefield studio issuing its own official Paris Multiplayer trailer alongside.
How to get in on the Battlefield 3 beta? Owning a new copy of Medal of Honor: Limited Edition guarantees elegibility.
Signing up for newsletters and keeping an up-to-date profile at the Battlefield site also helps, and, given Battlefield: Bad Company 2's track record, it's likely that beta keys will be distributed via prominent gaming websites and devoted fan sites.
Battlefield 3's October launch precludes that of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 by two weeks.
