Battlefield 3 will be getting an official multiplayer beta before the release of the game. So far access to the beta is limited only to owners of Medal of Honor Limited Edition, which was released in late 2010.
It is widely expected that the Battlefield 3 alpha will be expanded to include more players as it progresses, and finally, an open beta is not out of the question. The last time developer DICE held a beta was with Bad Company 2, where beta keys were given out to thousands of players.
What to expect of the beta
The Battlefield 3 beta will test out multiplayer gameplay and rely on feedback from players on such things as weapons (if some weapons are overpowered/underpowered for example), vehicle feedback, map specific feedback etc. The beta is expected to be multiplayer-only.
Battlefield 3 beta maps
t’s expected that the beta will include at least one map, and in order to test as many aspects of Battlefield 3 as possible, we expect it to be a large map with both infantry, air and vehicle combat,so DICE can get a feedback from a wide variety of gameplay elements.
Please keep in mind that the Battlefield 3 beta has yet to be officially announced. As soon as we know more details, we’ll let you know.

Medal of Honor Limited Edition features other special content out-of-the-box including the MP-7, a weapon utilized by real-world Tier 1 Operators in the field. With its light weight, high rate of fire as well as its ability to penetrate body armor, the MP-7 handles like a pistol yet allows targets to be engaged like a rifle.
