Battlefield: Bad Company Beta Hits Shortly


A mulitplayer beta has been announced for Battlefield: Bad Company.

EA DICE will hold this beta for the upcoming Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 title starting March 25. The game itself is due out this June.

To get a beta spot for Battlefield: Bad Company, players who belong to IGN Founders’ Club and IGN Insider will be offered keys through the download site FilePlanet. Keys will also be made available through other websites in the IGN network.

GameStop will also be offering upwards of 5,000 beta keys on a first-come, first-served basis for those who pre-order the game. It looks as if the beta will only be playable through Xbox Live.

EA DICE said “gamers will battle through two different maps, access new infantry kits and vehicles as well as experience the unique tactical destruction in Battlefield: Bad Company that changes the way first-person shooter games are played. With an unlimited upgrade tree and rewards, the multiplayer beta gives players the exhilaration, excitement and fun that awaits them when the final game ships later this summer.”
