Wow. In MP there will be 12 vehicle classes, 20 vehicles total. More than 80 different vehicle-specific unlocks.

[quote=BF3 blog][They have] three unlock slots: one secondary weapon slot, one gadget slot, and one upgrade slot. By playing a vehicle class and getting kills with it, you gradually unlock more specialisations for that particular vehicle class.[/quote]

[QUOTE=5ive;24857930]When is the fucking beta. I can't wait this long[/QUOTE]Several times a day, in their Twitter feed, they say "sometime in September. It hasn't been announced yet. Sit tight."

Here's a countdown animation to the retail release to distract you for 10 seconds.

-e- Fresh tweet - there will be jets in the beta. :cool:

I'm betting that the beta MP map will be "[URL="http://pnmedia.gamespy.com/planetbattlefield.gamespy.com/images/news3/Battlefield_3_Forest_MP_map.jpg"]Caspian Border[/URL]." If they surprise us with a different map, that would be cool too I suppose.

Is there an xbox beta for pre-ordering it? I saw you get different stuff depending on where you pre-order.... that's fucking retarded.

Beta starts on the 29th. Those that pre-ordered, were duped into buying MoH or simply got lucky will get in on the 27th.

Where are you guys getting multiplayer information? I like to send updates to the guys I play Bad Company 2 with, but I haven't seen any new info on this game lately. Just looking for some confirmed multiplayer information to send them while we wait for the game to come out.

5ive 09-20-2011 06:33 PM

They cockteased us all week, saying stuff like "This week is gonna be crazy" and "Can't wait for this week" and then they announce a beta for next week. Kind of disappointing

What do you want to know? I get most of my info from Reddit/SA, but the website probably has some stuff.

You can find a list of known DICE/EA twitter accounts if you want to follow them:

5ive 09-20-2011 06:57 PM

By "all week" I really meant yesterday.

[url]http://twitter.com/#!/locust9/status/115759585704415232[/url]

[url]http://twitter.com/#!/zh1nt0/status/115847715799310336[/url]

I dunno about you, but most people's responses to these tweets were "BETA IS THIS WEEK!!!!!" I spent all day yesterday refreshing reddit and SA for the latest news.

Then they announced it for next Thursday and I was sad :(. Oh well, I'm more pleased that we have a date than upset that it's next thursday (technically Tuesday since I preordered on Origin).
