  • [BLO] Battlefield 3 Beta Date is no Mystery!

    I'm suprised that EA and DICE have so strongly defended the Battlefield 3 Beta release date. They clearly announced at E3 that the Battlelog "PUBLIC" beta would commence on September 11th 2011. Without Battlefield 3, Battlelog will have extremely limited functionality and considering Battlelog is the core of Battlefield 3 an open beta without Battlelog wouldn't have online functionality at all. The Battlefield 3 public beta should commence on September 11th as previously announced at E3, that would then mean the previously announced 48 hour private beta would trial on September 9th.

    There are two issues with this; firstly for a private beta to commence Battlelog needs to be open and running. Secondly EA/DICE may decide to publically open Battlelog on the previously mentioned September 11th, this would coincide with a private 48 hour Battlefield 3 beta. This would give full functionality to Battlefield online, it would also allow the public to play around with Battlelog, this would give 48 hours to play with it's features before finally getting to download and play the Battlefield 3 public beta.

    A tweet from the Battlelog team back in June also seems to confirm this:

    Remember, the public beta of #BF3 will take place in September. #battlelog will be tested as well.
    With 4 days left till the previously announced Battlelog public beta I guess we'll just have to wait and see!

    Edit:

    Looks like DICE community manager Daniel "zh1nt0" Matros dropped a pretty big clue today.

    Because it was pushed to Friday . No real reason.
    Friday is September 9th that's 2 days (or 48 hours) prior to the previously announced September 11th public beta, I think it's safe to say the Battlefield 3 public beta will be commencing as scheduled at E3 for September 11th whilst the 48 hour private trial will take place from from September 9th - 11th. A weekend trial makes perfect sense as it'll give everyone a good opportunity to play the game.

    So it looks like Friday may be the start of the Beta... no official release yet, just clues :D

      Although your right, it is speculation... but he is the community manager for the EAUK forums I believe.

        New information:

        DICE PUTS BATTLEFIELD 3 BETA START DATE RUMORS TO REST

        Lately, an old rumor on Battlefield 3′s beta release date has resurfaced. The rumor stipulates that DICE is going to launch the Beta on September 9th for Medal of Honor owners and people who preordered BF3 through EA’s Origin, and it will go live on September 11th for everyone else. However, DICE’s Daniel Matros has just put this particular rumor to bed by reassuring it is “not valid”.
        Well, DICE made sure that rumor didn't last long.

            The rumor mill sure has kicked it into hig gear huh. Of course that suits dice and ea just fine. At this point i expext the beta to start very soon; if not this week then next. They mentioned wanting fresh input to improve the game rigt up to release day and a decently long beta period would suit that very well indeed. Expect the beta soon and expect day 1 patches

              Not sure if you noticed but the date of the post is from August 24th. Well before the person made up that rumored date post. While this does not change the fact DICE was telling the truth. Logically it makes sense if they are lanching Battlelog which has a tie in to BF3 and is key to their game. It makes sense for this to be a higher percentage of truth than people just spewing out dates and such.

              Does anyone remember the date BF2 demo was release?

                The game launched 6-23-05, I believe the demo was like 2 weeks before the launch

                  It would make sense if they released the closed beta on a Friday or a Saturday which would give more value to the pre order people. People that don't have the closed beta access would then spend the entire weekend regretting they didn't buy the Origin BF pre order.

                      I'm guessing they're going to announce the open beta date at least a day or 2 before the closed beta begins. I'm guessing they'll grab an extra few preorders from people who want to jump in the closed beta.

                          What Kappa quoted in his post clearly said BattleBLOG, and how it was going to be released on Fridays instead of Thursdays or whenever it usually is posted every week.

                          It had nothing to do with Battlelog or the BF3 Open Beta.

                          Don't cancel your weekend plans heh.
