BATTLEFIELD 3

The Battlefield 3 open beta starts on September 29th on all platforms (Xbox 360, PS3, PC).  If you’ve preordered the PC version on Origin, or you own Medal of Honor Limited Edition (any platform) then you can get in on the 27th.

Origin is required for the PC version, so hopefully it isn’t too badly broken.

Check out the official site for more details.

After the break are the official system requirements.

So it’s all pretty much as per the leaked requirements from the other week, except for the recommended video card, which is… rather more brutal than anticipated.

Last week a bunch of new screenshots dropped.  Check the full collection out hereDamn, but this game is pretty.

Update:

Fear not!

Word is the beta is not 20gb, but more like 2-3gb.  So like, don’t panic.  Buy a new graphics card instead of a new HDD, I guess.
