Battlefield Bad Company 2 Beta launches tomorrow!

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Nov 18, 2009 // Sr. Social Media Manager

So what can we expect from the PS3-exclusive Battlefield Bad Company 2 beta, exactly? DICE Producer Gordon van Dyke joined me via PlayStation Eye chat to talk about the Arica Harbor map, the destruction you can cause due to the game’s Frostbite engine, and how you can win your way into the beta. Oh and there are lots of explosions. Pretty, pretty explosions.

To elaborate on a few things – you can follow the Official Battlefield Bad Company 2 Twitter here, and one of those sites giving out beta codes is… this one.

We’ll be giving out beta vouchers starting Thursday afternoon (PST) via our Twitter and Facebook accounts. So start following!

It’s weird that there are no updates here, but I guess they’re busy. Their Twitter page says that Europe have been able to download the Beta since yesterday and that they’ve been playing for about 3 hours since they patched the VoIP. They’re waiting for Sony to “prop” the Beta for the U.S. and “please don’t spam your Redeem code or they might block you.” They also said they’ll be giving away more beta codes “through the entire Beta phase.”

That’s it so far.

Is Sony doing anything to ensure timed-exclusive DLC for BF:BC2?

I dont want to spend $60 on this game for PS3 and then find out we get DLC months after the 360 version.

Sony needs to step their game up and stop getting owned by MS when it comes to these big FPS games.

Why I can not fix it Sony. I waited the U.S. store will have as the first BETA and the EU store will be in second place. At least tell us something if the damage whether what we go once nothing interested us but still no info about it. All day search the Internet for Forum Information what is happening. Problem is still the same in the U.S. store can not download BBC2 BETA keys are broken. Let’s have something stym Do you want to play Bad Company Beta 2. Sony already DICE beseech you to download a BETA game via the U.S. store. Thank you

Super game to be able to download but now is not the servers DICE stym certainly fun or do not know when to put patches on the EU version and it was so why should wait for the U.S. version of the repairs. At least that I gave the beta download finally. Thank DICE and SONY.

the message about the VoIP update was about an hour ago, but the EU took a total of 4 hours from announcing the patch to playing.

hopefully sony will be faster this time 8|

FEEDBACK looks like im first in line for feedback
ok:i would like the in between game screen (after a match while waiting to start another) to be more interactive. why? well my friend invited me to his squad right before a great game was about to end but i wanted to win the match so i stayed, after teh match i had to wait for the next match to load THEN leave that match and join his squad, it would just be nice to be able to leave or invite between games. A- so far
