Ok guys, for those of you who ordered and played on MoH:Tier 1 Edition, the BETA is supposed to be available today for download via the new EA Origin systems.

 

You need to download EA Origin from: here - and login with your EA/Origin Account and the game will then be available to download in the "Free Games" tab at some point.

 

As of 8:30am GMT, the game isnt yet showing!

 

My ORIGIN/EA ID is "TuG_Beaver" if you want to find me and add me as a friend!

 

Also, there are some new NVIDIA beta & RADEON preview drivers out today that give improvements for BF3.

 

I use NVIDIA so the drivers are available: here

 

Below are the important bits from the FAQ on the BF3 BETA site.

 

1. What are the dates for the BETA?

 

THE OPEN BETA STARTS SEPTEMBER 29TH ON XBOX 360, PLAYSTATION 3, AND PC. THOSE THAT HAVE ALREADY PRE-ORDERED THE PC DIGITAL DOWNLOAD VERSION OF BATTLEFIELD 3 THROUGH ORIGIN OR OWN THE LIMITED/TIER 1 EDITION OF MEDAL OF HONOR FOR XBOX 360, PLAYSTATION 3 OR PC, WILL HAVE EARLY ACCESS STARTING ON SEPTEMBER 27TH. THE OPEN BETA ENDS ON OCTOBER 10TH.

 

2. Where do I get the BETA?

 

On Playstation 3, the Beta will appear automatically on the Playstation Network Store. On Xbox 360, it will automatically appear on Xbox Live Marketplace. On PC, it will automatically appear in the Origin application's Free Games page.

 

3. How do I install the BETA?

 

ON CONSOLE, YOU SIMPLY DOWNLOAD THE BETA AND PLAY. ON PC, YOU FIRST INSTALL THE ORIGIN CLIENT (DIRECT DOWNLOAD, ~50MB: WWW.ORIGIN.COM/DOWNLOAD ) AND THEN INSTALL THE BETA FROM WITHIN THE ORIGIN CLIENT. MORE DETAILS WILL BE AVAILABLE HERE BEFORE THE BETA STARTS.

 

4. Is ORIGIN required to play the BETA?

 

ORIGIN IS NOT REQUIRED TO PLAY ON XBOX 360 OR PLAYSTATION 3. FOR PC, ORIGIN WILL BE USED TO DISTRIBUTE THE BETA INSTALLATION AND run the game and THEREFORE NECESSARY TO PLAY.

 

5. I bought ther Limited Edition of Medal of Honor, how do I get early access?

 

 

FOR XBOX 360, YOU WILL RECEIVE AN EMAIL WITH INSTRUCTIONS AND YOUR PERSONAL EARLY ACCESS CODE. NOTE YOUR CODE AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS.

FOR PLAYSTATION 3, THE EARLY ACCESS OPEN BETA WILL AUTOMATICALLY APPEAR FOR YOU IN THE PLAYSTATION NETWORK STORE.

ON PC, YOU WILL RECEIVE AN EMAIL WITH INSTRUCTIONS AND YOUR PERSONAL EARLY ACCESS CODE. NOTE YOUR CODE AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS TO REDEEM THE CODE ON ORIGIN.

 

 

THE FUILL FAQ CAN BE FOUND AT THE BF3 BETA SITE: HERE

 

Hopefully see you guys on the TuG TS3 server today!

Its been a while hey .... :)

 

but im back

 

it a new era of gaming .... and a new era of life as i am also now a DAD :) Sophie my daughter is 7 weeks old and we are all very happy ...

 

I have been waiting 4 years for battlefield 3 so as you can imagin i am pretty excited!

 

as its a new era for me i have decided to start a fresh with a totaly new gaming name "Eternal_Guardian" i have the early access beta so add me.

 

i will be playing under the banner of "Champions of Justice" as i have been away so long im not sure what situation TuG is in but i wanted to create a "platoon" (thats what they call it in battlelog) of player similar to myself, with the same christian morals and NONE! sniper based game play. i am obviously happy to still remain in TuG a a part of the TuG community and i will still contribute where possible.

 

So ... Whats up ?

i played caspian boarder last night! its well.... MENTAL... massive and loads of vehichles.

I have sepent all my time playing assault so far so i wasnt much use on that map, but it was fun.

Choppers fly alot like BFBC2 but a bit slower.

Thought it was way to big at first but there are some close flags and like anything you get used to it pretty fast. there was a level 45 bloke on there lol he must have a fun life!

 

im looking to buy a joy stick for the planes any thoughts?

 

oh you need the pasword skipper to get into caspian boarder unledd you watch the forums like a hawk to get a password follow the instructions below it does work.

 

- Use Google Chrome as your default browser

- Start BF battlelog server browser

- Hit SHIFT+CRTL+J

- copy paste the blow line exactly....

 

launcher.verifyPassword = function(game, gameServerGuid, plaintextPassword, callback) { callback(true); }

 

- press enter

- select server – don’t enter a password – i.e. leave password field blank -

- go play! without the need for any password

 

see ya !
