- The Associate Producer for Battlefield Gordon Van Dyke
has announced today on the PlayStation Blog that the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 PS3 Beta Begins on November 19, 2009.
To quote: Today we're excited to announce that our forthcoming multiplayer beta is coming exclusively to PS3, so you'll have a chance to experience all the action, destruction and vehicular warfare ahead of our full release in March 2010.
Starting on November 19, the beta will feature the huge 'Arica Harbour' map where up to 24 players compete to secure valuable crates in the 'Rush' game mode as the action moves across a variety of different locations. From an initial vehicle assault on a military outpost the war winds through streets of a deserted town to an intense final fire-fight in an industrial harbour.

Getting access to the beta will differ from country to country, but here are a few specific ways of getting hold of a key:
â€¢ We'll be holding a special limited giveaway right here on the PlayStation Blog (details TBA).
â€¢ Pre-ordering the game at participating retailer.
â€¢ Checking out selected gaming sites such as IGN or GameSpot in North America.
That's it for now... although if you have any questions then let me know. Be sure to check back here tomorrow when we have a brand Battlefield: Bad Company 2 new trailer.
