Battlefield 3 Beta Gets Caspian Border This Weekend

Don’t lie. You’ve been running around Operation Metro in the Battlefield 3 beta every night this week. I know you have, because I’ve seen you out there. If you were getting a little tired of playing the same map over and over again, this announcement is going to make your day (and plan your weekend).

DICE announced today that they need to do some server load testing for 64 player matches this weekend before the beta comes to an end. As such, they’re going to unlock the Caspian Border map for play testing. According to a post on the Battlelog forums,

The Caspian Border servers will be available for all PC players to join. Caspian Border will be available starting Friday, October 7, in the afternoon (CET)

DICE also pointed out that the map would only be available in the PC version of the map for two reasons. First, they’re testing 64 player servers, which are not available on consoles. Second, the build of the beta available to console players does not contain the Caspian Border map. It’s not a matter of one platform being better than another.

PC Battlefield 3 players, I’ll see you there. Now, I think I’m sick or something and need to take the rest of the day off work. Yeah…

I want to firstly say that I have thoroughly enjoyed the beta. That being said, and I have already voiced my opinion on the bf3 forums, the joystick support in the beta as terrible. I sooooo hope that they fix that when the full game is released. There were also a lot of problems with double assigning key and axis commands in the menus. It was very frustrating. For someone that was primarily airsupport in bf2 it was very saddening. But again the foot game was very good despite the bugs which were less and less as the week moved on. Very beautiful game.
