Battlefield 3 Multiplayer Beta Official Release Date and System Requirements

September 20, 2011, By Nicholas Davis

DICE and EA have finally revealed what so many gamers were waiting patiently for. The rumors can finally come to a rest. The open beta for Battlefield 3 starts later this month on September 29th for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. The beta will end on October 10th. There is no level cap for what you can unlock during the beta but your experience will not transfer over to the actual game when it releases October 25th. Dice and EA have also released the system requirements for Battlefield 3 and it looks like it’s time for a PC upgrade if you expect to run this game at full settings.

You do not have to do anything special to gain access in to Battlefield 3’s open beta. If you own an Xbox 360 it will be available to you through the Xbox Marketplace. If you own a PlayStation 3 it will be available to you through the PlayStation Network Store. For PC users you can download it through the EA Origin service. If you pre-ordered Battlefield 3 on PC then you can download it two days early on September 27th through EA’s Origin application. You must download Origin to play Battlefield 3 on PC.
