Battlefield 3 gets an unexpected exclusive
The Battlefield 3 Open Beta is coming to PSN in just a few days! It will run from September 29th to October 10th and it will be your chance to play the game early, test out the new Battlelog social platform, and give feedback.
There's actually some even cooler news to go with the beta annoucement. Starting with the Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand (coming out later this year,) all full upcoming expansion packs will arrive a week early exclusively on PS3. Definitely unexpected, considering Microsoft's requirements for title releases.
The Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand expansion pack features four maps from Battlefield 2 that have been "boldly reimagined in the Frostbite 2 engine." You'll also see new weapons, vehicles, in-game dog tags, persistence and Trophies.
Want to join the beta? Head to the PlayStation Store and download the Battlefield 3 demo. Also, if you have a Medal of Honor: Limited Edition or Tier 1 Edition Online Pass, you'll automatically get a personal email from DICE and score 48-hour early access allowing you to play on September 27th.
