The wait is over, The Battlefield 3 Beta is open!

Battlefield 3 PC

When the dust settles in the next couple months one multiplayer FPS will reign supreme, at this time though, the heated battle between Call of Duty MW3 and Battlefield 3 is a lopsided one with the release of the open beta for the latter today!


If you’re as excited for Battlefield 3 as I am then you were probably on the site at midnight like me, only to find out sadly you couldn’t download the Beta Client at midnight. Luckily, I could download it this morning, and that is exactly what I am doing.

For those wondering where to get the beta you can download it from battlefield.com/battlefield3/1/beta. Enjoy.

Check back later tonight for my own Initial Impressions of the Battlefield 3 Multiplayer for the PC. See you on the Battlefield!
