Battlefield 3 beta access will seal the deal for many
DICE has confirmed that those who purchase Medal of Honor Limited Edition will get all of the benefits of the Limited Edition, of course, plus one new bonus that might be the best of it all, which is access to the Battlefield 3 multiplayer beta when it starts.
The purchase of the Limited Edition version of the title does assure you of an invite to the Battlefield 3 multiplayer beta, according to developer DICE. Our sources tell us that DICE has not announced, confirmed, or suggested exactly when this beta for Battlefield 3 might start beyond the understanding that the title has been in development for some time and a 2011 release is expected.
With the announcement of assured Battlefield 3 multiplayer beta access, this could be the additional push that Medal of Honor needs to get Battlefield fans to move that previously have been on the fence about buying this title. This move again shows EA’s new marketing skills to better cross promote their FPS titles, and also shows just how serious they are about regaining market share in this space.
