Battlefield 3 Beta Access Included with Medal of Honor Limited Edition

Out of nowhere, EA has announced that the limited edition of Medal of Honor will include access to the beta test for Battlefield 3 from DICE. Purchases of the LE will "receive an invitation to the Battlefield 3 beta within 12-months following the release of Medal of Honor."

nope This means that we should be seeing the beta for Battlefield 3 before October 12, 2011. Nothing else is known about Battlefield 3, but it was confirmed to be in development in June 2009. Sounds like a fall 2011 release may be in the cards.

We presume this means we'll see Battlefield 3 for the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 as the beta details mention Xbox Live Gold being a requirement for Xbox 360 users. The game will use the Frostbite 2 engine, which powers Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and the multiplayer portion of Medal of Honor, both of which are PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 titles.
