Battlefield: Bad Company 2 – PS3 Beta Begins November 19

Gordon Van Dyke's Avatar Posted by Associate Producer for Battlefield

Hi All,

I’m Gordon Van Dyke and I’m the Associate Producer for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 here at EA’s DICE studio in Stockholm.

Today we’re excited to announce that our forthcoming multiplayer beta is coming exclusively to PS3, so you’ll have a chance to experience all the action, destruction and vehicular warfare ahead of our full release in March 2010.

Battlefield Bad Company 2

Starting on November 19, the beta will feature the huge ‘Arica Harbour’ map where up to 24 players compete to secure valuable crates in the ‘Rush’ game mode as the action moves across a variety of different locations. From an initial vehicle assault on a military outpost the war winds through streets of a deserted town to an intense final fire-fight in an industrial harbour.

Check out our announcement video here.

For a preview on the beta itself click here.

Getting access to the beta will differ from country to country, but here are a few specific ways of getting hold of a key:

  • We’ll be holding a special limited giveaway right here on the PlayStation Blog (details TBA)
  • Pre-ordering the game at participating retailer
  • Checking out selected gaming sites such as IGN or GameSpot in North America.

That’s it for now…although if you have any questions then let me know. Be sure to check back here tomorrow when we have a brand Battlefield: Bad Company 2 new trailer.

So, how do Canadians get access to a beta key I absolutely must get in on this!

    I believe that Canadians should be able to go through the same process as those in the US. You can pre-order at Best Buy and GameStop for guaranteed access or stay up to date at http://www.battlefield.com for other ways to get codes

November 5th, 9:10 am

Awsome!
I want this beta!
BF:BC was a great game and BC2 will be even better, I’m sure.
There will be a special edition of the game?
I really like collector’s edition with strange and particular gadgets. ^^

No beta codes for the QORE annual subscribers? That’s a pity.
But thank you for the possibility to try this game! =)

GamerMoney said:

November 5th, 9:10 am

is there any possibility qore subscribers can get in on this…they’ve spoiled me with betas since they’ve launched lol

omnilaw said:

November 5th, 9:11 am

WOW nice work EA. Sweet! I’ll be pre-ordering mine!

RAUWT said:

November 5th, 9:11 am

Will codes be given to people that pre-ordered from ea games directly?

iamPADDY said:

November 5th, 9:11 am

Well that’s [DELETED]. You either have to get lucky or pay for it.
What happened to applications and requirements? Too sensible?

Aerfox said:

November 5th, 9:11 am

Awesome, can’t wait to get the chance to play in the beta. Thanks for bringing this exclusively on the PS3.

Your doing a fantastic job, I’m more excited about this than Modern Warfare 2.

HolyBoom said:

SmileUrDead said:

November 5th, 9:11 am

PsyTruck said:

I was gonna pre-order MW 2 tomorrow but I like the Battlefield series a whole lot more and I really want to get into this Beta. Will be pre-ordering this game for sure.

Is there a list yet of which retailers will be offering the beta?

Definitely looking forward to this. BC was the first one I ever played and got me hooked.

The game looks good, I love the destruction in bbc but I could never play online due to problems so I only got to play the story mode. Hopefully this means I can play online with bbc2. Saw the trailer on youtube a while back and overall the game looks crazy. realism with real destruction? all shooters should look like this. now hopefully it plays well and its not all looks.

WackyWeedCreed said:

November 5th, 9:24 am

I MUST get a beta key!

Glad to see constant support from EA and DICE for their PS3 fans XD

Oh sweet! Can’t wait for Bad Company 2!

PLEASE get voice chat and party invites working 100% on PS3 this time both were terrible in the first game. Please please please.

Moosehole said:

November 5th, 9:28 am

Why annual Qore subscribers aren’t getting in this is beyond me, and frankly quite annoying.

Assassin_4_Rent said:

secularsage said:

Enigma777 said:

November 5th, 9:32 am

Hell yes! I hope Amazon is one of those select retailers…

Anyways, this is great because I’ll be able to compare this to MW2 and see which one is truly king.

kmkaizen said:

November 5th, 9:34 am

salmonK said:

November 5th, 9:35 am

PaRiLiZaTiOn said:

November 5th, 9:37 am

Looking good. Probably going to be one of the best shooters of 2010.

Rabid619 said:

November 5th, 9:38 am

Very nice! I’ve been eagerly awaiting the game, and I’m really excited to get my hands on it earlier. I loved the first, and the second looks to be a big improvement.

Can’t wait, see you on the 19th!

lyfestory said:

November 5th, 9:38 am

s1vrNb1ck said:

November 5th, 9:39 am

Looks great, and I’d love to play the BC2 beta ;)

JokerElite said:

November 5th, 9:41 am

Cool! Another Beta! Only for PS3! This is what we need, more of this. I’m gonna pre-order.

Dice_for_Death_ said:

November 5th, 9:41 am

Certainly looks interesting enough.

SAiLO said:

November 5th, 9:43 am

That’s good news, Battlefield will be the bees knees! lol

Gringo234 said:

November 5th, 9:44 am

The first game was alright. Maybe this one is a bit better, I’ll give it a try and if I don’t like it I’ll cancel my pre-order.

Bailers77 said:

November 5th, 9:45 am

Thanks GvD!

Hpedni said:

November 5th, 9:45 am

I love you. I’ll hold off on MW2 and wait for BC2. I was debating this, but this kinda support pretty much sealed the deal for me.
