Welcome to the Battlefield 3 Open Beta, Now Available on PSN

Tommy Rydling's Avatar Posted by Senior Community Manager, DICE

Starting now, we are happy to invite all PS3 players to the much anticipated Battlefield 3 Open Beta! Played on the Operation Metro map in Rush mode that won us Best Action Game and Best Multiplayer Game at E3, this is your chance to experience one of many flavors of Battlefield 3.

Battlefield 3 for PS3

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your great interest in this Open Beta. By joining, you will help us stress test servers, allow us to run important tests on the game’s back-end and Battlelog. Remember that this software is in Beta and does not represent the game’s final quality — you’ll have to wait for October 25th for that! For a full FAQ on the Open Beta, head here.

Please leave any feedback to us at DICE via the forums in the social platform Battlelog. Make sure to also head to our free social platform Battlelog to check your in-depth stats progression, start your own Platoon, and see how your friends are doing in the news feed. To get you started on the Operation Metro map, here are some playing tips straight from us at DICE. You can also study the PS3 control scheme in the image below. Enjoy, and let us know what you think!

DICE’s Top 10 Battlefield Tips for Operation Metro

  1. Stick to your teammates, and remember to spawn on them to stay close to the fight.
  2. Use your kit specific abilities to help your team mates. Assault can hand out med kits, Engineers can repair vehicles, and Support can hand out ammo.
  3. When you arm an M-COM station, defend it to ensure it’s destroyed.
  4. The bombed-out tunnel section in Operation Metro is an excellent place to use a flashlight as one of your weapon attachments. Use it to light the tunnels up – and to blind your enemies!
  5. Attach bipods to your weapon and deploy it automatically by pushing up against cover or laying prone and zooming in – this gives you a huge increase in accuracy and stability.
  6. Use suppressive fire (shoot close to enemies behind cover) to negatively impact the enemy’s fighting capabilities.
  7. Watch out for falling debris — it can hurt you! But you can also hurt your enemies by taking out buildings with the Engineer’s RPG.
  8. Shotguns are excellent for CQC (Close Quarters Combat) in the tighter tunnels sections.
  9. Fire automatic weapons in short bursts for accuracy, or switch to single-fire mode if applicable.
  10. To grab your enemy’s dog tag as a souvenir, perform a stealth knife kill from behind.

I’ve been playing this for two days now and I love it. Why did you all strip down this map so drastically? The alpha videos I’ve seen had vehicles and everything. Can’t wait for the full release because this is very fun but there’s not much to it. It’s underwhelming.

Already got it! Amazing! Waka waka!

Too all Battlefield Noobs: Please Learn how to SPOT!! Spotting involves simply pressing the “Select” button when your cross-hairs are pointed on an enemy. Spotting will show your enemies’ location to teammates and when used on a regular basis by enough squad members, it is a powerful tool.

    Yep, Spotting is a pretty powerful help for all your friends. It really gives a better overview of the action — and it gives the spotter extra score. :)

OK well that one worked. I have been playing for two days now and have a question… DICE, why did you all strip this map down so much? Where are the vehicles? It’s great looking and plays like a dream but the environment is underwhelming without the extras that we love aboujt BF series ie APVs, tanks, etc Casn’t wait for Oct 26th!!!

Been waiting for this! Played Alpha but meh didn’t like it on PC.

Rene_Led said:

September 29th, 12:10 pm

this doesn’t make sense:
Assault hands out Med kits
Support hands out ammo

Shouldn’t assualt be handing ammo and support meds? Sounds more practical that way to me lol

    Tommy Rydling said:

    September 29th, 12:53 pm

    Hehe, so this is how we figured:
    Since Assault is going to be the guy at the frontline, getting hurt all the time, it figures that he should be the one patching up his squad mates at the front. While ammo and LMG makes a perfect fit for the Support. Try laying down some suppressive fire with a Support from afar. Suppressing gives the enemy a slight blur effect and lowers his accuracy — and gives you teamplay score.

Kryshalis said:

September 29th, 12:12 pm

@24, I’m sure they’d say it’s a balancing thing, but I couldn’t tell you how. Doesn’t make sense to me, either.

September 29th, 12:25 pm

it makes perfect sense for the support to throw ammo hes the guy with the big gun that is shooting nonstop it is his job. There has always been a deficiency of medics in battle field and since there are a lot of people who play assault this fixes the problem of there being no medics.

@37 – That’s why they are having an open beta; to test the servers and make sure they work properly.
