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…
