Battlefield: Bad Company 2 PS3 Beta Hits Europe with Problems

250°
249w ago - Today the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Beta hit Europe, while being delayed in the US.

However, the UK Forums are currently loaded with negative reviews of the Beta... far from lackluster is the gist of what I am reading.

There has also been a patch update v1.01 (7.7MB) released which fixes the initial server and VoIP issues, and the servers are now up and running.

Finally, those who are still seeking BFBC2 European Beta keys may wish to give THIS post by Solfegieto a look, but remember there are only 5,000 available so act fast if you plan on doing it.

So what can we expect from the PS3-exclusive Battlefield Bad Company 2 beta, exactly?

DICE Producer Gordon van Dyke joined me via PlayStation Eye chat to talk about the Arica Harbor map, the destruction you can cause due to the game's Frostbite engine, and how you can win your way into the beta.

Oh and there are lots of explosions. Pretty, pretty explosions.

We'll be giving out beta vouchers starting Thursday afternoon (PST) via our Twitter and Facebook accounts. So start following!
 

Video: Battlefield: Bad Company 2 for PS3 - Creating the Trailer

100°
251w 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...

Starting on November 19, the beta will feature the huge 'Arica Harbour' map where up to 24 players compete to secure valuable crates in the 'Rush' game mode as the action moves across a variety of different locations.

300°
267w ago - According to GamersDigest (linked above), the Coral Sea and the Air Superiority mode has finally been unlocked for the PS3 version of Battlefield 1943.

XBox 360 players had unlocked it earlier in the week as they reached the target figure of 43 million kills that was set by EA Dice, but PS3 players can now also enjoy the fourth map.

The demo timer has also been reset, meaning if you've downloaded the demo and expired the allotted 30 minutes of time, there will be another 30 waiting for you when you sign back in.

To quote: GamersDigest can confirm that Coral Sea and the 'Air Superiority' mode has finally been unlocked for the PS3 version of Battlefield 1943, with 360 players having unlocked it earlier on in the week.

To play the new map and mode, look at the last option on the menu, select it just like you would select 'Quick Match' and get ready for pure dogfighting.
