Developers of the Battlefield series of games, DICE, has revealed that an open beta for the latest game will happen this summer.
Speaking to BF2142.com
, DICE said that "We are going to throw out an open beta in the beginning of August. The beta is predominantly to learn about large scale issues, i.e. when we have [tens of thousands] of people playing at the same time, eliminating some of the problems we have encountered after launch previously in the franchise. Keep your eyes open to join."
Who could resist an opportunity to get in early on this one? Although we weren't too impressed with the appearance of the game at E3 back in May, we have high hopes that the team will be able to pull something awesome out of the bag nonetheless. We'll certainly be keeping our eyes peeled for beta developments.
The full game is set to arrive in the Autumn.
