Betas are big these days. Everyone loves to sample games before they come out.

Now, it has already been reported that everyone will have access to the Battlefield 3 beta test. It'll be a public beta, which means anyone with an Internet connection can download and play, well before the hotly anticipated title is launched on October 25.

But you may recall that Medal of Honor purchasers were promised something special related to the BF3 beta. If the beta is indeed public, what do MoH buyers get? DICE Global Battlefield Community Manager Daniel Matros fielded this question on his Twitter page (as summarized at SystemLink ), and all he had to say was:

"Hey! The beta for MOH buyers hasn't been announced yet."

Well, it would only make sense for Medal of Honor buyers to get into the beta early. A closed beta, perhaps? Either way, those people were promised something special regarding the BF3 beta and it seems DICE will indeed have details soon.

I bought Medal Of Honor for $10 new here in Canada. This game and Vanquish have been selling out at EB because of the $10 sale price the last two weeks.

My question is how do I get access to the Battlefield 3 beta? I don't see any code in the case.

How on earth do they get 2 million people to prove they bought the game without any codes?

Was the EA Pass in place for MoH? If it was, perhaps they have some way of tracking anyone that used a pass, or maybe you'll get access to it if you have MoH trophy data on your profile (that is of course, if this is real)

Yes, EA Pass was in place for MoH. If you entered that code, then EA will know you bought the game and therefore you should be eligible for the beta or whatever bonus they decide.

Anyone else heard of the fight between EA ans Valve? EA took alway all there games on steam to promote EA origins. Pretty funny.

I read about that, seems like it could hurt sales.

It will hurt sales. I already have BF3 pre-ordered for PS3 but was looking forward to purchasing the PC version as well.

I have all my PC games on Steam because I enjoy their service a lot. I don't want to open a whole other program just to play one game. So I guess they will be getting the PS3 version only, since that's what I use to play online with my friends. Only reason I wanted to try the PC version was to see what the Frostbite engine can do on there.

really looking forward to the beta.
earthquakes may be coming to the MP too.
i find that hard to believe though, they cant do more then 8 players on consoles but they can do earthquakes?
i just hope the destructions allot more free then BFBC2.
ive found not everythings destructible, only certain things are which is really disappointing considering the advance damage system THQ has in there RF games.
so much fun hooking a magnet to a pipe, and sending said pipe flying into a enemy!

What you talking 'bout 8 players? There's 32 foo'. And apparently the environments still run on Destruction 2.0, but they've been scaled back somewhat, so don't expect to annihilate the game world.

I hope we get something special. I enjoy MoH but I wanna get my extra for the beta since I bought it!

The main reason why I got MoH was because of the BF3 beta, sure it's shallow but it's the truth! I was in the beta for BFBC2 and loved every minute of it.

I just got an email from EA thanking me for buying Medal Of Honor Limited Edition and saying a spot has been reserved for me in the beta!
