James, Mitch and Zach Take on the Battlefield 3 Beta (VIDEO)

With the Battlefield 3 beta going open on all platforms this week, our intrepid video team has jumped in and gotten themselves pummeled a few times for your amusement. If you haven’t checked out the beta just yet, or even if you have and are amused at listening to James’ cries of “Dammit!” as bullets pass through his digital skull, you’ll want to give this video a go.

The more useful portions, generally narrated by Mitchell, outline much of what can be expected from the beta and how it all works. Explanation and maybe a few tips can be found within.

Its been said that the team issues everyone’s having on the xbox, ps3, and pc will be resolved on release, its just the beta is using an older version then release, this includes a lot of the annoying bugs currently in beta, they have all been fixed already just not in this version of the client.

I really hope you are right. I really wanted to give this pc version a go but the beta is an awful interpretation of what the pc has to offer BF3. Origin is a joke and why you guys have not said so is beyond me.

I agree the origin stuff is crap but when it comes down to getting into a game quickly this new web browser thing works far better then any game client iv had to deal with. It can take up to 3 minutes or longer with bad company 2 to get into a server and start playing but only takes about 30 seconds or less with the web browser, the loading time on my games have been super fast so I can’t complain there.

And the server browser is no different then what you would see in a video game so i have no idea why people hate it, it does everything a normal game client does but faster with a lot more features, and I’m guessing it’s taking up a lot less resources on the computer.
