Battlefield Bad Company 2 Beta launches tomorrow!

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by 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!

i don’t think they want you to be able to unlock everything in the beta that’s why it resets, BUT its all stuff we played with in bad company 1 so its stupid to hold that back its really not showing the true experience

crappy beta so far. all too bright, choppy movements, tank vs tank combat needs improvement, running movements are so godamn stiff, cant look around when sprinting, looking around just feels wierd. back to mw2, babai bc2.

Weapon unlocks from the first game should carry over and have new weapons additionaly

Blood effects when shooting an enemy are less than satisfying… actually rather pitiful…

Otherwise great game…love the new urban setting

Losing connection and game ends quite often. Movement is kinda clunky and slow, should be little smoother and a little bit faster. Overall the game is a blast, just some tweaking needed for the game to be a huge hit like cod4.

I got mine yesterday gotta say it’s pretty fun, but I think I’m still gonna get MW2

I have been playing the beta, what I like about this ,instead of MW2 is that there are not a bunch of spaz. running around at hyper speed(unrealisic)doing the bunny hop. I mean you still have guys working the perimiter but it has a different feel when you can draw a bead on them.

Battlefield bad company 2 with out a doubt and by far the greatest game ever!!!
There is no competition out there right now that can compete with this Hell of a game and that’s just coming out of the beta experiance just wait until the full game comes out. Cod/Mw2 should quit thier day jobs!

I took a hole day for them to get the Beta going but i have to say it was worth the wait. I have been playing it every day and its amazing. I am tired of people saying they are copying COD. Its a great game and i believe it has things over COD. Winers are annoying and they should just enjoy the game. Keep up the Good work DICE!

MW2 is fun but it’s like an unreal tournament type arcade shooter in a war setting. BFBC2 is much more tactical and realistic, but still fun and chaotic. They’ve struck a great balance.

Loved HL2, KZ2 is awesome, but BFBC2 is the best online multiplayer FPS I’ve ever played. And yeah that’s just the beta w/ only one map.

When are any developer going to give keyboard and mouse support to PS3 FPS?

No serious FPS player ignores the power and precision of a mouse, since the times of Duke Nukem.

I even remenber that Red Faction was one of the best games for PS2 just because U could quickly and swiftly aim and kill with a mouse.

My cousin always tells me that there is no better way to play a FPS then in a PC, and I have to agree, because there is nothing like a mouse in the hands a FPS Player.

I play BF1943 in the PS3, it’s fun, almost casual shooter, but It’s ridiculous to use a 47″ screen and fight the joystick to snipe someone in the other half of IwoJima.

It’s a prediction game, not a skill game.

If anyone had a mouse jumping and trowing grenades would be easy, straffing and machine gunning some infantry soldier would be fair, and snipping would be a pleasure experience.

Please add this silly easy piece of code to the options of BFBC2, it would sell much more. Cause many of us FPS entusiasts, would prefer to play it on our hometheater with mouse precision, than buy the PC copy, to play it with accuracy.

Once U put it on BFBC2, upgrade BF1943 to support USB and/or BT KB and Mouse. ;)
