A new Battlefield 3 teaser featuring Jay-Z’s “99 Problems” has gone up. As we get closer and closer to the game’s October 25th release date, more details about the multiplayer have been revealed. First, an open multiplayer beta will go live on September 29th and will last until October 10th. For those who pre-ordered the game off of Origin or pre-ordered a copy of the limited edition of Medal of Honor will be able to access the beta two days earlier on September 27th. The beta will feature a map set in Paris called “Operation Metro”, which includes lush parks, Paris streets, and a bombed out metro station. The map will showing off the game’s Rush Mode, where one side tries to take over stations and the other side defends.
Not only will players be able to try out the multiplayer, they will be able to try out the new Battlelog, a free social media network specifically made for Battlefield. Players will be able to communicate with friends, view stats, and share their progress.
And in even more multiplayer news, Playstation 3 owners will get access to the game’s multiplayer expansion map packs first. However, this timed-exclusive will only last a week. One week early is better than nothing, right?
