    Battlefield 3 Beta Info

    Post  SoV Admin on Thu Sep 22, 2011 2:09 am

    Battlefield 3 Beta:

    * The beta will not start at midnight or 00:00 GMT
    * The download size will be 2 - 3gb
    * Those who had the alpha must download the beta client, the alpha client can not be updated.
    * No game rank limit during beta (go all the way to 50!)
    * Pre-load information coming soon
    * The beta was not delayed



    Battlefield 3 General:

    * The netcode is completely new and rewritten

    * Players can not join a squad if their team is full (to prevent Battlelog groups from getting split)
    * Vehicles will begin to heal themselves after 10 - 15 seconds (this is a server setting)
    * Vehicles will only begin to regenerate if their health is under 75%
    * Unlocks are class restrictive, can't put a sniper scope on a support gun
    * Operation Metro has been better balanced
    * Two knife animations (behind and on the ground)
    * A knife attack on your player can not be countered
    * Throwing a grenade will still prompt enemy players to yell (Bad Company 2 similar)
    * Hand grenades can not be held to make the detonation time quicker (known as cooking)
    * You can join a server that a friend is on via Origin
    * Friendly Fire is set to "on" by default. It can be turned off in the server settings
    * Caspian Border is not the biggest map
    * Jets do not have bombs (wtf?)
    * If you are kicked from a server, Battlelog will prompt you with the reason (ping, server settings, or server admin reasoning)
    * A ranked server can be turned into an unranked server (for practice, etc.)
    * No weather or time change during a multiplayer game
    * e-sports are the focus of Battlefield 3
    * No word on Battlerecorder/Game recorder



    Misc. Battlefield 3 Information:

    * You can use three screens with the game
    * Next 1 - 3 weeks will bring more information about maps
    * Battlelog application for iPhone/iOS (free). No word on Android.
    * Battlelog is updated separately to allow game updating to be a bit more flawless
    * More community events in the works (some happening here on enterbf3!)
    * Mod tools are still a possibility
    * Two nVidia GTX 580's can run the game on ultra
    * Battlefield 3 may be available on the Xbox marketplace
    * Some 300 employees at DICE

    Its probably that they dont have bombs by default but you can spec into them the same way that tanks dont have a MG but default.
