Default Bad Company 2 PC Open Beta

Looks like they delayed it until "early next year" And no 64 players, 32. I guess that's not too bad. When playing on console with 24 it's not like the map feels empty anyways. And.... Dedicated Ranked servers, and private servers yay! But does that mean you can't rank on private servers? Hope not. DX11 support as well.

At least they're gonna do it right. Delay? No big deal to wait for a game that won't be a waste (MW2....)

I am 100% fine with a delay if it means the game will be better. 32 players is fine if the maps are smaller than BF2 64 player maps. I am enjoying the beta for the PS3 but want to try for PC. DX11 is probably going to be an after thought though so probably not much of an improvement.

Here's an update that was posted Jan 7th. Hmm, doesn't look like it's an open beta anymore... And no mod tools or server files?? At least beta will be a new map different from the PS3 beta. I really hope I don't have to preorder to get a key...

I know but 49.99??? I'm hoping theres a 4 pack deal. The stuff you get with the limited edition are just unlocks that you gain access to immediately instead of having to aquire them. If there won't be a 4 pack deal though, I might as well just pre-order...

yea, i was hoping this'd have a 4 pack, but it's gonne be up for pre-order for a month, so i have time.

either way, at 50, it should be a good buy either way.

This is my most anticipated game for early 2010. The beta for PS3 is a lot of fun. Can hardly wait.
