As a gift for your support in the beta, all participants will be awarded another point in the BF Veteran rank that will apply to special perks in the final game.

213w ago - Today Marcus Johansson of the DICE Video Crew has shared a video and detailed the creation of the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 PS3 trailer.
To quote: We got some really cool stuff to show you from the upcoming Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Beta map, Arica Harbor, but it isn't just a new trailer. It's actually something a little different.
Usually when we create movies there's a lot of intense action which is always good, but this time we wanted to try something we haven't done before.
The idea was to find action-filled moments and then capture them while the game was paused. This way the viewer can focus more on details and maybe imagine how he or she would play in that specific situation.
After showing a short test version to the team I got the green light to make the trailer. But how do you capture this kind of stuff? Well, what I like the most about Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is that we can show actual gameplay, so instead of staging scenes, I've been working with material recorded during our daily studio play tests.
After we're done with our daily tests, we can replay the rounds over and over until we find the scenes we're looking for. This way people can be sure that the game trailer they're looking at represents the game they will get to play...
