    The Battlefield 3 early access beta has been up and running for a few hours now. For those that are already playing impressions seem very positive. A marked improvement over Bad Company 2, it's proving a thoroughly enjoyable experience even without vehicles. The weapons all feel great and importantly so does the movement. Oh, and Battlelog is really neat.

    It's not all peaches and cream however, with numerous eligible readers here at GU not receiving their beta keys at all. EA Australia have requested those with problems contact support, so head on over, log-in and get a live chat going: http://helporigin.force.com/. If no one is available, head to EA support here: http://support.ea.com/.

    Unfortunately attempts seem futile at this stage, with responses such as the following:

    Gagan: Well the beta is not launched yet and we do not have any such official update about the launch time of the early access.
    Gagan: We do not have any such official update about the official time of launch.

    Harshdeep: We are glad to see your excitement for the Battle! You will get the Early Access Beta Key today; however, as of now we don't have any ETA. Please wait for only a few hours and you will get an Email with the key in your account. We appreciate your patience and I hope to see you soon in the Battlefield!
    Harshdeep: We understand your disappointment. As a small token of appreciation of your patience, I'm giving you 15% discount coupon which would be valid for a month and can be redeemed on Origin Store. Please keep checking your inbox and we'll meet in the Battlefield!

    If anyone finds a sharp and snappy way to get this resolved, please let us know!

    The early access is live and is great. But lots of people haven't received their keys. http://t.co/Qkn13cmS

    Re: battlefield-3-early-access-beta-live-problems

    I managed to finally get into EA support chat. I was told that if I did not get my key and able to play during early access. I could still play once open beta starts. What a crock of...

    Ritesh: Hi, my name is Ritesh. How may I help you?
    ME: Hi
    ME: I'd like to know why I haven't gotten my Battlefield 3 early access beta key
    ME: I preordered the game from Origin last month
    Ritesh: We understand your excitement for the game's early access.
    I know you've been eagerly waiting for the Early Access Beta key with bated breath,
    so have I! Well, the early access key will be sent today; however, as of now we don't have any ETA.
    Please wait for only a few hours and you will get an Email with the key in your account.

    We are still sending email.

    We appreciate your patience.
    ME: But I am guaranteed to get it, right?
    ME: Because everyone I know has theirs, except for me
    Ritesh: If you did't get the early access then you can play on 29th " open beta"
    Ritesh: Is there anything else I can help you with today?
    ME: I was guaranteed early access because of my Origin preorder
    Ritesh: Yes you will get I am not refusing.
    ME: So why haven't I gotten my key? There's nothing in my email or in my spam folder
    ME: And you just told me I have to wait until the 29th to play
    Ritesh: We are still sending email

      I understand that people are annoyed with this, especially if you pre-ordered to get early access and haven't gotten what you paid for.

      I would still give it several more hours since EA just isn't going to look into a particular case today but will stick with "Wait for the email".

      If you don't get a beta key today, get a refund on the game or ask EA/Dice what they can do for you for compensation since you did pay for something you didn't get.

        I knew this would happen. So I am not that surprised. I didn't pre-order just for early access. I just hope that EA/DICE will compensate everyone by extending the beta. I can only imagine how bad it will be when it goes open.

        Anyone can say they need to get their act together. I know they are doing everything they possible can. So to show some sympathy and not lose customers. Extending the beta would be a great move IMO.

          Yep. Still no early beta email for me. And I did just pre-order it for the early beta access.

          Disappointing, but not surprising. It is EA, after all.
