September 20, 2011Written by Zak Islam

After months of speculation and anticipation, publisher Electronic Arts has finally announced when gamers will be able to get participate in the beta for DICE’s Battlefield 3.

The multiplayer beta for Battlefield 3 will be available on the PlayStation Store for all PlayStation Network members come September 29th, which is next Thursday. The beta is open to all platforms.

Gamers who have a retail copy of Medal of Honor, as well as those who pre-ordered the shooter on EA’s digital distribution service Origin, will receive an email delivering further instructions on how to play the beta a bit earlier than everyone else on September 27th.

The hotly anticipated beta will feature one game mode, Rush, that will take place on the map entitled Operation M├ętro. Additionally, the taster will see the introduction of Battlelog, the social network which gives players access to a slew of options: tracking specific stats, medals, rewards and much more. However, the Battlelog stats, etc, acquired for each player will not carry over into the full game.
