With the Battlefield 3 beta test almost upon us, EA and DICE have published some FAQ notes to clear up some of the confusion as to who will and won't get access and how players on the various platforms will go about participating.

According to the FAQ, EA's Origin client will serve as the client downloader for PC players and those eligible for the "early access" 48 hour headstart will receive a redemption code via email. Early access Xbox 360 players can also expect a redeem code in their inbox, but eligible PlayStation 3 gamers will be able to find the client download directly in the PlayStation Store when the beta kicks off.

As for early access eligibility:
Q: Who is eligible for early access to the Battlefield 3 Open Beta on September 27th?
A: Customers who have pre-ordered the PC digital download version of Battlefield 3: Limited Edition on Origin, or registered their first-hand copy of Medal of Honor: Limited Edition/Tier 1 Edition, or purchased Medal of Honor Limited Edition from Steam prior to July 26th, 2011.
Which is sure to be a bit of a disappointment for anyone that picked up Medal of Honor with the expectation of exclusive BF3 beta access.

Following the early access period, from September 29th it appears that the beta will be open to all comers in the supported regions (North America, South America, Europe, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand).

The FAQ also confirms that any stats/experience points earned in the beta won't carry over to the retail release, however you will retain your account "soldier name".

EA have also told us to expect a new full length trailer -- both online and on ye olde television -- this week with all new gameplay. As the teaser embedded below (click here for HD) shows, it will feature more fresh clips of gameplay and a questionable soundtrack choice.

I assume it uses the EA CDN, which is pretty good. However, the EA CDN does not have local ISP representation so it'll be metered downloads for all.

I have asked DICE about this and if there's any plan to move to a system like Steam where they have regional Content Servers to work around this. I suspect it hasn't even been considered at this point.

Judging from some of the decisions made with this game I somehow doubt they will care about Australians having to use part of their download limit to get the game. My guess is you will get a crypticly worded "lol australia" reply.

I find Origin download speeds are f***loads better than steam. Downloaded crysis 2 at 1.7MB/sec all way through. However I would expect it to be a little slower considering every c*** is gonna be dling the beta.

I've also experience Origin to be much faster than steam, steam downloads really vary depending on peaktimes I am guessing whereas Origin downloads at 10Mb/s for me so full speed whatever connection I have.

As others have mentioned though I hope they allow installation of games to different directories since now I understand what people have complained about now that I have an ssd.

well it's Origin and I've heard nothing about hosting Origin game files/content server info. So I have to assume the only way to get it will be from Origin through the EA network.

wonder if they are going to pre-load the beta or full release when it comes out - similar to what steam does with some new releases.

Not sure whether to get the boxed copy or origin version. At least with the boxed copy I will not have a massive download ahead of me...

You'll definitely get the pre-order bonuses (at least EA stated it would be available up until release).

I dunno what the go is...
Game on Auto was set to medium for everything (GTX 275) 1920x1080 resolution.
Seems to frame rate wise run fine.
Got into the tunnel and frame rate still seems ok but the way other players move just seems...... jerky, almost more like there's no client side prediction of movement and its lag.

Tried putting everything on low incase its my system, makes no difference. Same sorta thing with what feels like mouse input not being smooth.

Can't rebind things like sprint to thumb mouse button, bit annoying :/

What's the go.. half the time there is no "hit" icon flash thing over the crosshair, other times there is... It's inconsistent :/
Definitely getting hits since I was killing people, it's just weird. Seems like close range you get the hit indicator and at long range you get nothing.

I was playing with you last night I think boba.
I assume you are bobajor? I was the one who hit you with the SV98 a few times ;)

I really like how you can pull the scopes off the sniper rifles, in the open areas you can put the scope on your rifle and when you go into the subway or the town area afterwards, you can pull it off and it reminds me of the K98 in DoD :)

Knife animation is exceptionally cool, and you aren't safe from being killed while knifing which is good. The animation is quite long.
To get a 1 hit knife you need to actually take the knife out first (6) as a weapon. Just doing a quick melee slash COD/BC2 style won't net you a guaranteed kill unless they are low on hitpoints.

Runs fine on my GTX 260 on medium settings 1900x1200. Find it runs faster and smoother then BF:BC2. I guess I'm losing alot out with directs 11.
Running Quad core with 8th ddr3 ram

Was playing on game areana no tanks, 64ppl or anything so not sure how the full version will go

Bah, had to change origin accounts, realised I had an old one ages ago with a few games on it! Add Froodleme if anyone wants to play.

The only thing I hate is having to use the website to join etc. Not sure why they didn't just do it through Origin or something like that.

The battlefield 2 demo was the same, even with the clunky/s***** ingame server browser it took ages... they sort of fixed it... I guess.

keen as, looks like a heavily squad based thing...

can't choose squads in beta.
My only tip, stay away from any hill outdoors or the back side of any rocks. Otherwise you can prepare yourself for an extreme amount of falling through the ground fun. Or bouncing around on crack so you can't aim at anything.
(this is a major issue everyone experiences).
Oh also only approach the first MCOMM A from the East (if you're attacking facing defenders). approaching it from a western angle will result in you falling through the ground and getting permanently stuck there :)

(Yep, the beta map is honestly that flawed). Once you get past the outside area the clipping issues seem to go away. and from what I've seen of Caspian Borders, it does not have the same issue.

the game is definitely squad based, suppression is more valuable then kills in some areas
