The open beta for Battlefield 3 commences on September 29 (September 27 for early access users), but that's not all as DICE have also announced that all present and forthcoming downloadable content and expansions for Battlefield 3 will hit the PS3 one week earlier than the competition.
"...That's not all for our PlayStation fans! You'll be happy to know that beginning with our first expansion pack Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand (to be released later this year), all full-blown upcoming expansion packs for the game will appear one week early exclusively on PS3, brought to you by Sony," announced DICE Jr. Product Manager Tommy Rydling.
"As you may or may not have heard, Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand is a themed expansion pack containing four of the most loved maps from Battlefield 2, boldly reimagined in the Frostbite 2 engine. It also features new weapons and vehicles, unique in-game dog tags, new persistence, as well as new Trophies.
Battlefield 3 is out on October 25 on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
