[] Battlefield 3 Beta Opens Sept. 29

Fans of DICE’s large-scale FPS rejoice: the open beta for Battlefield 3 launches on September 29. Anyone who preordered BF3 via EA’s Origin service or purchased the Limited Edition of last year’s Medal of Honor will be able to play the beta early starting September 27.

The beta will feature one map, Operation Metro, in the Rush mode popularized by DICE’s Battlefield: Bad Company series. Though the beta will end October 10, there is no playtime limit. Players are free to rank up as far as possible but DICE has explicitly said that no stats or unlocks will carry over to the finished product.

Xbox 360 and PS3 users need only download the beta software to play, but PC users will need to install and use Origin. The beta should give players adequate time to get accustomed to EA’s service before the full game releases October 25. System requirements for the PC version can be found below.

Minimum Recommended OS Windows Vista (SP2) 32-bit Windows 7 64-bit Processor 2 GHz Dual Core (Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or Athlon X2 2.7 GHz) Quad-Core CPU Memory 2 GB 4 GB Hard Drive Space 20 GB 20 GB Graphics Card 512 MB ATI Radeon 3870 or NVIDIA 8800 GT 1024 MB ATI Radeon 6950 or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 DirectX DirectX 10.1 (AMD) / DirectX 10.0 (NVIDIA) DirectX 11 Sound DirectX Compatible DirectX Compatible Source: DICE
