Battlefield 3's much-anticipated open beta starts on Thursday, September 29, the publisher said this morning.
The beta will run until October 10 and will give players a chance to check out the game and the social platform Battlelog, according to the post on the official website for the game.
If you pre-order the PC digital version of Battlefield 3 on EA's Origin store before September 25, or if you bought Medal of Honor: Limited Edition/Tier 1 Edition, you will get 48 hours early access to the beta, meaning you can start playing Tuesday, Sept 27.
For Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the open beta will be visible on the consoles' digital marketplaces under Battlefield 3. For PC, you need to install Origin and download the Open Beta from within the Origin application.
