Battlefield 3 Open Beta Begins Today

By Rebecca Smith,
Players who purchased the Limited Edition of Medal of Honor will already have been playing the Battlefield 3 beta for two days. Those of you who didn't purchase that game had to wait until today, but that wait is finally over. The beta has now appeared on the Marketplace for download, and is available until October 10th. It is only available for play in English, but can be downloaded in North America, South America, Europe, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
