    Hi Guys,

    I'm not sure how many of you were in the closed / open beta of "Battlefield: Bad Company 2"?

    We only access to the one map and in the than new Rush game mode. So if EA / DICE includes more than one game mode it'll be an improvement beyond that of the BC2 beta period. They'll probably stick to the one map rule in beta testing in my opinion. So not to over expose the game maps before retail.

    Plus it makes for a much smaller download.

    There is a quote somewhere saying that the BETA will be close to full release size and just a patch across to unlock the full game.

    I dont think it will be that much, BFBC2 as it sits now with all the updates included is just over 8.526GB (download from Origin), so BF3 will most likely be between I'd say 6-10GB.

    I wouldn't have thought the team would be actively dodging answering questions about the release date of the Beta if it were being released over the weekend. Probably still trying to finalise the code and don't want to be burned by the community if they release an exceptionally buggy version or commit to a date and don't deliver.

    LOL yer gotta like beta testers opinions, the hc guns are to over powerd and our aimbots dont have much advantage.
    And put spotting in hc so we dont get accused of wall hacking.

    The game's gonna be 2 discs on the 360, so the retail could well be a whopper. Dunno about the beta though.
