Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Beta Coming in November


DICE has announced that an exclusive PlayStation 3 multiplayer beta test for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 [http://badcompany2.ea.com/] will begin in November.

The multiplayer beta will feature the "Rush" game mode and include one map, Arica Harbor, letting up to 24 players take part in an American attack on a Russian army base. The map features a mix of both vehicle and infantry combat, as the initial armored assault on the forward base grinds down into the inevitable infantry battle as the level progresses.

For gamers who don't happen to own a PlayStation 3, an open beta of the PC version will begin in December; a worldwide open beta for the PS3, PC and Xbox 360 will follow "early next year."

Keys for the upcoming PlayStation 3 beta will be given to North American gamers who preorder the game at either Gamestop [http://www.bestbuy.com], while beta partners for Europe and Asia are expected to be announced next week. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is currently scheduled for release on March 2, 2010.

Sweet, looks like a good game if the first one was anything to go by. I love blowing up stuff, it appeals more to our base instincts.

It looks more like 'Not BF3 but not BF2/2142 and a half either' certainly looks nothing like Bad Company either.

Can't wait, should tide me/us over till BF3. Dice have been good to us.

One question, if we pre-order for the 360, will we still get into the beta for the PS3?

I'm really looking forward to that 360 beta. I'm very excited for it. In fact I just bought Bad Company so I could get caught up on the story so I would understand the sequel.

I wish my PC wasn't so shitty - then I could use it for the beta rather than PS3.

What exactly is the "Rush" game mode? Do you attack the opposite team's base and try to destroy it or something?

I don't own a PS3, I own an xbox and a PC, but still, I'm happy that those PS3 owners are finally getting something :D
