It probably doesn't work. Likely you'll get access to the demo (beta) maybe a day or so before the rest of the world. That's apparently going to happen in September.

They have already said it is an open beta, so anyone who wants to play it will be able to regardless of whether they purchased moh or pre-ordered bf3.

Open beta my ass. Open would be if you can download for free without having purchased anything. or is that what it really means? I keep hearing that in the words, and wondering whether it's a dream. A free beta, with no strings attached, in this day and age - and from EA? It just doesn't sound real.

Might lessen the risk of going through Origin tho. If Origin ****s up some time within the first two weeks they're gonna lose a few hundred million dollars in sales. lol

Don't know why you seem surprised - it's pretty much been the deal with the franchise for a long time. BC2 had a single map demo, BF2 had one - don't recall the others, too far back and too many beers.

I think the BC2 gave the demo out a day or two early if you had pre-ordered. I also had a PS3 demo version earlier than the PC with no pre-order requirement. The BF2 one I don't believe had any stipulations as I'm sure I played it as soon as it was made available for download and I never pre-ordered a boxed version of a game in those days.

BF2 had their demo servers still running ages after the game was released .. was so funny but at least people got to play it for free

don't get me wrong, I've played the demos, and i'm all for them being free. BC2 didn't have one, and neither does just about anything else these days, that's why I was surprised to hear BF3 will.

Demo = Beta?

BC2 definitely had one. The snow covered map with sniper hill.
