    Battlefield Bad Company 2 (PS3) - Beta key registration open @ EA now..........

    EA site has opened up registration for the Bad Company 2 beta

    Just go here...........

    badcompany2.ea.com/

    ..............and put in your email address to register your interest in getting a beta key - I think they are going to be given out randomly (not necessarily first come first served), so worth a shot...........

    Beta Keys are also now being given away from GAME when you pre-order the game from them................if you already had a pre-order in it should have been automatically upgraded to the special edition - which will provide a beta key ................... nice.................

    It is looking great - they have also balanced up the classes a lot too, and put in better ground to air weapons, to help take out those freakin' helicopters................can't wait for the beta, and the retail release.

    In my opinion BC1 multiplayer was head and shoulders above COD4 mp..........vehicles, destructive environment and the sheer size of the maps........ hopefully the same will still apply..............

    That is true - hopefully they will have more servers active this time around - it seems to be a much higher priority release for EA now. I also hope they have sorted out the dodgy voice chat. Should get a better idea when the beta starts next week :thumbsup:

    GAME are giving beta access with pre-orders as of this morning - best get in quick as the codes are limited. Luckily I had a pre-order in already, which has now been automatically upgraded to the limited edition - managed to get it for £24.99 too, using a voucher code a few months back :thumbsup::

    Playing BC1 last night just after playing MW2 and it is fun whereas MW1/2 is just intense (v good but intense)...for me anyway.
    Can't believe the first version got so cheap so quickly and IMO it is criminally overlooked.
    I haven't played much online but I'm under the impression, rightly or wrongly, that it needs some more play modes.

    Original Poster

    You are right about play modes - they are limited to Gold Rush and Conquest (capture the flag) on BC1 - in fact, at launch there was only Gold Rush, Conquest was added as an update. The size of the maps though are fantastic, and there is huge scope for tackling the game in different ways.

    With BC2 there are going to be more MP modes to choose from - four in total. No details on the new ones yet though.....

    I hear they are also rejigging the classes a lot, to balance them out - and that the squad system will be better (ie less random).

    With regards lag, I found more lag and unplayable/crashed games on COD4 multiplayer than I have on BC1. So many times on COD4 the game started, then ended straight away, and that flippin' little hill map with the storage containers and concrete tubes was just crazy for lag.

    Anyways, really looking forward to this beta - I am expecting great things from DICE :thumbsup:

    Same here - the GAME website says something like "the keys will be given out on release day" - which I am hoping is tomorrow (and not March!!)

    Regarding Twitter - seems a bit of a nonsense really - they have given out, what, like 24 codes, in a free for all......with how many people wanting to play...? :roll:

    Thanks ive signed up, ill give the beta a go, I quite enjoyed the first one,would havebeen better with a group of mates but my friends all play on the 360 and i got BC1 with my ps3 !

    Where did you get the code from? It might need to be activated on a US account?

    I saw that GAME are now sending out beta keys on Mondays only from now on. If you have previously pre-ordered and not received one though, it is worth sending them a grumpy email/message chasing it up. They changed the T&C of the keys giveaway last night at some point, and if you pre-ordered before that, they should cough one up.

    casparwhite - what is your psn id? Add me to your list if you want to squad up - flamingcarrot

    Anyone else want to post their psn id? I have a list going here:

    They are US beta keys, so you will need a US PSN account in order to activate/download the beta

    Oh, well - the keys are there if anyone wants them. Beggars can't be choosers?!

    EDIT: Qentox reports that the Gamespot codes might not work, even on a US PSN account..........worth trying though. I definately know that one person has got it to work (could just be the servers were down earlier) :thumbsup:

    casparwhite;6936851

    No, got a key from a clan mate. Have not downloaded it yet.

    But too busy with MW2 anyway.

    Thanks again for supplying me with the Beta Code(s), dan.

    Out of interest, I logged into my US PlayStation Network account to download the Private (Closed) Beta version, and after installing I found that it runs fine from a European (UK) account.

    At the bottom of the loading/menu screen there is presently a message welcoming both the US & the European players to the Demo, so we may well all be using the same server now.

    Hope to find you online soon.

    One of my kids is already a rank 12... I've got some catching up to do!

    BFN,

    fp.

    PS. I found it much better than my early experience with "MAG". Have you tried that for a comparison?

    Original Poster

    Hey fanpages, glad you got the beta to download and play OK :thumbsup:

    I have also been playing the MAG beta, and feel much more positive about BC2 than I do about MAG (partly because I can actually work out what is going on, and what I am supposed to be doing, with BC2!)

    See on the Battlefield ;-)
