    Origin lets you specify separate directories for installs, and the install files.
    I install my games on my 500 GB 7200rpm drive, but save the install files on my 1.5TB "green" drive.

    The beta will show up in the free games section on Tuesday. Then, it will be a fight for bandwith.

    When is the actual first day of beta for the people who have pre-ordered on Origin? I heard it was Sunday from some, Tuesday from others. Still not showing up for me BTW.

    Damn. I was hoping I would be able to at least see it before I had to study.

    I sorta have exams on Wednesday and Thursday, so I don't see myself playing till at least Friday, but we will see. At least the bandwidth rush will be over.

    I never use Steam backup anyways, like brandon said. Simply because, It takes forever to compress, then unpackage, then make sure each game has all the downloaded info it needs.

    Sunday (today) is the day you need to pre-order by to get access on Tuesday.

    Battlefieldo - CASPIAN BORDER FOOTAGE APPEARS

    We got our Hands on new Video showing some new gameplay footage on Caspian Border. At this point we do not know what version of the game these footage is from, but it’s speculated that this is from the beta coming next week. As it has been confirmed before that Caspian Border will be included in the beta client, but only for internal testing purposes and selected testers.

    Would be great if DICE will unlock it at all.

    Yeah i heard there was a petition up in the EA forums when EA announced the Beta map would be Metro again after a lot of alpha testers already played the map - I think most of them hated it as its a rush game and not everyone likes rush

    guys in the EA forum wanted Caspian border as Battlefield is primarily about conquest before any other game type and the map was already finished anyway.


    as far as i know - the map will still be Metro unless otherwise

    Probably better than Alpha. This is beta after all and customized settings should be expected, including controls.

    Pretty sure it's been stated that the beta will be available for download on the 27th, not before hand. And that beta will not start right at 12:01am, also it won't be a full game install, so a late download shouldn't matter much.

    Horse manure!! Sorry Mail-Man but you can backup the Origins/Games folder that has the game installers in that folder simply back up to a spare hard drive or external like 1Kurgan1 does.I have tried this in my Win8 DP system and worked like a charm it said for Dead Space 2 ready to install when I copied over the folders.You can also back up the folders to multiple DVD`s or Dual Layer or just leave them on a hard drive.And there is NO download limit on the games Read Origin Faq under downloads.
