Battlefield 3 beta arrives September 29 photo



It feels almost a bit late in the day for a game that's so close, but nevertheless you have your chance to enter the beta for Battlefield 3 on September 29. I'm assuming that "beta" in this instance means "glorified demo," as it so often is.

If you preordered the game on Origin, you get early access on September 27. The demo takes place on the Operation Metro map and uses the "Rush" mode gametype -- where one team attacks and the other defends. For more information on how to get you a slice, the beta page is right here.

Battlefield 3 is out October 25 for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

Death from above in Battlefield 3 - Challenge Scot

This week's challenge is in Battlefield 3 in which I attempt to run over an enemy player whilst piloting an air vehicle. With so many other players ready to blow me out of the sky combined with my lack of piloting skills, this might be just beyond my grasp! If you've got any ideas for future challenges you'd like me to have a go at, feel free to leave them in the comments!more

Far Cry 4's Pagan Min teaches a man to scream for help, not text for help

Poor Pagan Min. He tries ruling his regime with a positive influence, but all those terrorists are there to just, ahem, "muck" it up. Maybe his tendencies to take hostages and implement electroshock torture aren't viewed by everyone as "positive," but it's tough to argue with such a snazzy dresser.more
