The official Battlefield blog announced today that gamers will be able to participate in the Battlefield Bad Company 2 multiplayer beta starting November 19.
On November 10, participating GameStop locations will be distributing a limited quantity of PS3 beta keys to customers that pre-order a copy of the game. The multiplayer beta will showcase the Rush game mode where up to 24 players can duke it out on a map called Arica Harbour. Featuring on-foot and behind-the-wheel combat, it’s the Americans assaulting a Russian base through desert towns, an industrial area and the harbor itself.
A PC multiplayer beta is slotted for some time in December. Early next year, a multiplayer demo will be available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 blasts its way into retail on March 2, 2010 in North America and March 5, 2010 in Europe for the Xbox 360, PS3 and the PC.
