Yesterday, Battlefield Community Manager, Daniel 'zh1nt0' Matros held a Battlefield 3 beta Q&A in Teamspeak. Unfortunately it was mostly in German, but EA UK forum members w1q3d posted a summarized list. An English Q&A is promised as well. We've corrected the article for grammar and took out some answers that were not too clear.


2-3 GB beta client
Netcode is totally new
Battlelog can be updated without patching the game so we can get new stuff faster
No level limit @ beta
Caspian Border is not the biggest map
Next 1-3 weeks will be talking about new maps
Auto heal on all vehicles after 10-15sec
Can't join as a squad if team is full so Battlelog groups don't get split
No weather + time changing in game
No jet bombs
Battlelog application for iPhone
You can use 3 screens if you have enough graphic power
E-sports is a focus for BF3
No comment for BattleRecorder
Battlelog will unlock beta on client so no keys for pre-order if you have origin order + Medal of Honor
Unlocks are for weapons not for classes. You can't unlock red dot on gun1 and use it on gun 2
Pre-load info will come in a few days
Metro got changed that' why they want to test balance again
You can not change the posters in game to make clan publicity
You have more then 1 knife animation. On the ground you can NOT counter knife
Beta will not start at 00:00
Beta was never delayed ( the date )
You can not UPDATE alpha client you need a full download
You can join with friends on a server
Friendly fire is On default settings
Mod tools are still CONSIDERED
You can not cook grenades
Vehicles auto regeneration ONLY under 75%
Ranked servers can be changed to unranked but same price
When you get kicked you can see the reason in the Battleblog
there will be more info the next weeks
Some community events will be held during the beta
About 300 workers @ DICE
Will be some more Q&A for English people "soon"
Makes sence why Metro again if there were changes.

Seeing this I can't help but think the pc version is still going to feel like a port, despite what they say about it being the lead platform this time.

mm I played the alpha and can't say that it felt that way. It's no surprise that different systems and places will get different specials like this. Although giving PS3 users early access to Karkand is idiotic. Which system has played the map before?

That has nothing to do with the development of the game. That's the business end of it.

EA you bastards, try to preorder, and according to paypal it comes up to $67.19 incl tax. So i put $70 on my prepaid visa, then go to preorder and it gets denied because it somehow managed to jump to $72. Even at the current exchange rate, it would be $69 CAD.

Anyone have a D2D promo code? That can be stacked with the current 15% off preorders code.
