Bad Company 2 Beta Confirmed

We've been saying how important demos are to gamers these days, and just how accepted the practice of sampling a game before it arrives has become. Well, another feature of this new generation has also become ingrained in the mainstream gamer society: beta tests.

It used to be that only a very select number of people - almost all of whom are industry insiders - would ever get to test a game before it arrived on store shelves. But along with demos, many of you have jumped into at least one or two betas so far this generation and developers consider these testing sessions to be an invaluable part of the final QA process. This is especially the case for games that put a big emphasis on multiplayer action, so you shouldn't be surprised that EA is planning a beta for the highly anticipated sequel, Battlefield: Bad Company 2. According to YourEMGN, an EA representative has confirmed the rumors that a beta test will exist: "As for the beta, we'll have more details later this week." Okay, so it's definitely coming, and GameStop seems to know when as they're the ones who leaked this information earlier. The retailer seems to believe the beta will start on November 19, which isn't too far off... For now, though, we'll have to wait for EA to provide us with some official information because we know a lot of you will be interested in participating in the test.

The original Bad Company was a ton of fun and we're expecting nothing but "bigger and better" from the sequel. Let's get a taste in just a few weeks time!

Oh Your damn Skippy the first Bad Company was a ton of fun, another Beta I'm pretty stoked about. Tactical Destruction is where its at, plus having a bit of a humerus feel for the game makes it a good time.

Well I pre ordered from gamestop online and it was a limited time only (tonight it ends) that if you pre-ordered you would get into the beta. What I thought was interesting was that it said ps3 only so I wonder if the 360 will get the beta as well.(not that I care)

Actually World, this game could be better than MW2. I think the "Frostbyte" engine is better. The game looks amazing; I urge you to try it out when available as a demo or maybe do what ever is necessary to get into the Beta. Don't think you will be disappointed...

Q!

I found the BFBC1 multiplayer to be much more enjoyable than than MW1.

MW2 shall be a rental for me, just for the story campaign but BFBC2 will be a purchase for the multiplayer alone, the single player campaign is simply a bonus :)

1 thing i want from this is total complete building destruction.
the first had blowing walls up, so RFG stepped it up and had structural damage to buildings.
i want to see BFBC2 match or beat RFG.
the physics engine in red faction guerrilla was completley amazing, the way cement broke, the way steel girders bent and twisted.
only complaint about that is the walkers, i mean what the fu** is the point of creating something so cool and restricting its use to 5 minutes throughout the whole game.
i mean seriously who does not want to walk through friggin buildings?

Thers one problem ..... i saw the trailer for this game and even though it looked good it lacked the fun of the old one. To anyone who played the original, you remember the fun in the game especially the cut scenes lol. i hope that this game does not become a COD4 wanab
