Medal of Honor Limited Edition purchasers to get access to Battlefield 3 Beta

EA was already providing gamers who buy medal of Honor Limited Edition a great deal, and now it appears that deal is about to get much more sweeter.

According to Kotaku, “Along with some extra weapons and a remastered version of Medal of Honor: Frontline (exclusive to the PlayStation 3 version), picking up the $59.99 limited edition of Medal of Honor ensures players a spot in the Battlefield 3 beta test, which should happen within twelve months of Medal of Honor's release, according to the EA beta website.”

We have gone quite some time without solid evidence confirming the existence of Battlefield 3. It was first mentioned back in June of 2009 by John Pleasants, EA COO. After that, we haven’t heard even a whisper about the game (until now). We no longer have to wonder whether not this game exists. This news officially confirms that the game is in development and set to hit beta stage in 2011.

What we don’t know is when in 2011 the beta will occur. What we do know is that the Limited Edition of Medal of Honor will go on sale on October 12, 2010 for an MSRP of $59.99 in the United States. It will be released for the Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC platforms. One other possible benefit of this news is that it could drastically increase the sales numbers for the Limited Edition of the game.

For me BF3 should have the following: 1) BF2 sized maps 2) Jets/Helos 3) a lot more player/weapon customization 4) lots of unlocks and 5) no freaking "rubber banding" effect!!!

If you have to stick with the Frostbite engine, atleast roll back and use the same Frostbite engine used for BF1943, the graphics were amazing and it could handle large maps.
If BF3 has maps like BC2 I will seriously perform a terrorist act on DICE @ Stockholm.

Lame, BF3 being on anything other than the PC means it has fail written all over it!! Also when ever EA/Dice releases a beta you may as well call it "Demo" since they change very little from either of these to the game release. I'm willing to bet that the beta or demo will be released right after the game goes gold and is in production. They really screwed up with Bad Company 2 focusing on the Xbox more than the PC with another perfect example being BF1943 that STILL hasn't been released for PC yet.

Also I'll be damned if I buy MOH or any other game just to play a beta..what a greedy way to sell a game.

This just means the BF3 will be multiplatfrom which is a very, very bad thing.

I hope they just upgrade BF2's engine and build BF3 off that. If they use frostbite I'm gonna be ****ed. If they console port this like BC2, my favorite franchise is ruined. hello starcraft 2.

What's with these company's and pushing games. Quality > Quantity. Don't seem to be the case for them tho. And Mirror's edge well my god I hope they don't make another one of those, that game is horrible to the max.

Mirrors Edge 2 already confirmed: http://on-mirrors-edge.com/ind...amp;view=article&id=110:ea-confirms-mirrors-edge-2&catid=3:gamenews&Itemid=23

I think DICE is developing too many games at once and the quality is showing it. Games in development now are BC2 Vietnam, MoH, BF1943 PC (May be canned), BF3, and Mirrors Edge 2. IW just developed one game at a time and now Treyarch is doing the same.

As I have stated before, ill demo this game. But im not likly to purchase it. Allied Assault was the last great game in the MoH series for me. The expansions took the cake also, but the crap they turned out after breaktrough and spearhead.. Pacific Assault etc. were terrible. I'm not expecting anything else from what i've heard so far about the new MoH.

I want Bf3 badly...but after the debacle of BC2 I don't know if I'll waste anymore money on the DICE/EA Range.

Seriously they still haven't fixed the VOIP chat in game its been 3+ mths since it came out.
Then there's the MAPS 8 maps for the entire game and they just keep releasing them in different modes and calling them mappacks lol

Hadn't even heard of this new version of Medal of Honor (used to play the original a LOT) - watched a few vids and it looks pretty stunning!

Another way to lure customers purchasing a reskined bc2 game. DICE - EA you are really worthless now. You are in the same league with IW - Activision in my book

+1

Betas are now being used to sell games instead of finding bugs. "Sometimes, beta versions are made available to the open public to increase the feedback field to a maximal number of future users."

Fewer testers = fewer bugs found = buggy retail release.

Great news !

It's coming to consoles too, so it'll be adapted to old console technology and then ported to PC just like BF:BC2. It's gonna be ****. RIP BF.
