Questions and answers on the Alpha trial and Beta.


Hello folks! I´ve been getting many questions on twitter regarding the Alpha Trial and also the upcoming beta which was announced at E3 to be in September.

It´s amazing that so many people want to share their experience and are so keen on playing Battlefield 3.

Here are som questions and answers you might find useful :) :

How can I get into the Alpha Trial?

It is a highly tech focused test period where the main purpose is to do a number of server related tests in preparation for game launch requiring a set amount of players online to ensure the final experience is as much fun and easy as possible.

Is this the Beta promised to buyers of Medal of Honor: Limited Edition?

No, this is an Alpha Trial, meaning this software is still not at the "Beta" development milestone. The Open Beta will start in September. The exact date for when Medal of Honor: Limited Edition players can join the Beta will be announced at a later date.

Can I join the Battlefield 3 Closed Alpha Trial?

The Alpha is a closed test and by invitation only. If you'd like to have a chance to be called upon make sure to register for our newsletter and ensure your Veteran status is up to date.

We are also not giving away keys to the Alpha Trial on any of our social networking platforms.

Recently a Medal of Honor: Limited Edition Beta newsletter went out to users. What is that all about?

Well, that newsletter says you are entitled to play the beta in September. It is however not a ticket or a code. If you purchased a copy of Medal of Honor with the Battlefield 3 Beta sticker on it, you are eligible for the Beta. If you have not received the newsletter, make sure you opt in on your EA Profile to receive them. Also, if you haven´t received the newsletter and own a copy of Medal of Honor: Limited edition, you are eligible to play in the beta.*

The Alpha ended on August 1st, and they have already said that the Beta is supposed to start sometime in September.

HOWEVER, they just released a blog post http://blogs.battlefield.ea.com/battlef ... ducer.aspx

In this blog post, they link a video: http://youtu.be/9DycWX13_Lw

In this video of some kid playing BF:BC2, he states that he heard a rumor that they would release the Beta "much sooner" than that.

Synopsis (fewer words): It looks like the Beta release of BF3 is imminent.

As a reminder, anybody that pre-ordered MOH should automatically be guaranteed a Beta key. Additionally, I'm sure that there will be plenty of Beta keys to go around and that everybody will get to play it.
