Battlefield: Bad Company 2 beta coming soon exclusively to PS3

PlayStation 3 owners will soon get a chance to beta test multiplayer for the upcoming Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Dice officially announced today. The beta will launch on November 19 for the PS3, and will feature the Arica Harbor map, where up to 24 players can compete in one of the game’s four intense multiplayer modes called Rush.

You’ll get a full load of vehicle and infantry combat, as the American assault unit attacks the Russian army base in an attempt to overtake the Arica Harbor. The beta test will feature heavy vehicle warfare, which grows to intense infantry fights.

“This is an outstanding opportunity for PlayStation gamers to get early access to one of the most action-packed and polished shooters in the marketplace with Battlefield: Bad Company 2,” says Rob Dyer, SVP, Publisher Relations, SCEA. “We’re happy to help DICE achieve their superior level of multiplayer excellence in the game.”

PS3 owners get the first run at beta, followed by PC open beta starting in December. Early next year, a demo will be available on PS3, PC, and the Xbox 360. The game is scheduled for release on March 2, 2010 in North America and March 5, 2010 in Europe.
