Electronic Arts has written a blog post to explain how gamers can get in on the current Battlefield 3 alpha and upcoming beta tests. It’s strictly invitation-only, and developer DICE won’t be distributing download codes on social networks.
The modern-day military shooter is currently undergoing alpha testing, which is a “highly tech-focused test period” to run the game’s servers through their paces and “ensure the final experience is as much fun and easy as possible”.
“If you’d like to have a chance to be called upon, make sure to register for our newsletter and ensure your Veteran status is up to date,”
writes community manager Daniel Matros.
You can sign-up for the newsletter here. As for “veteran status”, you’ll need to head to EA‘s Battlefield Veteran site. Here you can log-in to your EA account and start linking your purchased Battlefield games (through your Xbox Gamer Tag, PSN ID and PC serial codes) to your account.
