I will bone dry someone for a beta key right now! Anyway all you MW2 supporting bums take note. THIS is how its done.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Beta Details Surface: PlayStation 3 on November 19, PC in December

A multiplayer beta for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will be available on PlayStation 3 come November 19 and then hit PC in December, developer DICE announced today.

Those in North America can gain access to the PlayStation 3 beta by pre-ordering the game from GameStop, with those in Europe and Asia told to be on the lookout for "local opportunities." The December-due PC beta, meanwhile, will be open to all.

But that's not all, as a downloadable multiplayer demo will hit PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 "early next year," presumably before the shooter's retail release on March 2.

The beta includes one map, Africa Harbor.

And here's what DICE had to say about Africa Harbor:

Up to 24 players can compete in one of the game's four intense multiplayer modes called Rush. This new map displays a superb balance of vehicle and infantry combat, as the American assault unit attacks the Russian army base with full force, advancing further through a beautiful desert town and towards the industrial area in a desperate attempt to overtake the Arica Harbor. Heavy vehicle warfare on the first bases gradually turns into an intense infantry fight as the level progresses, showcasing this best-in-class online war experience.

hell yeah mail man!! this game is gonna rock! i cant wait for it, now only thing is what version to get? pc or 360? i think we all know what one im going to choose : D
The audio on the first bad company was, so damn good, i cant actually explain how brilliant it was in the first game on a 5.1 surround sound system.
i think we have a MW2 killer here! just need to extremely over hype the game, cut the SP storyline to about an hour and a half then nerf the pc version completely! oh, dont forget the playable terrorist cut scenes! Tis the one game i cant actually wait for!

BF:BC2 beta will have more players than MW:2 on PC.

I cannot wait for this game. Piss on IW and their lazy ass port. This is how to make a game properly and continue delivering top quality content the community will respect you for.

The highlight of my year will be playing this BETA... and I got married this summer. <-- Don't tell my wife.
