FAQ on the Open Beta

Can I get early access to the Open Beta by pre-ordering Battlefield 3 on Origin?
Yes, if you pre-order the digital download PC version of Battlefield 3: Limited Edition on Origin. This will also entitle you to the pre-order items Physical Warfare Pack plus the Shotgun and Beret for Battlefield Play4Free -- see above.
I bought Medal of Honor Limited Edition/Tier 1 Edition and was promised entry to the Battlefield 3 Beta -- is that a different Beta than the Open Beta just announced?
No, it is the same Open Beta, but as a first-hand buyer of Medal of Honor: Limited Edition/Tier 1 Edition, you will have 48 hours early access.

What if I pre-ordered the digital download version of Battlefield 3: Limited Edition on Origin before they announced the early access to the Open Beta -- do I still get this early access?
Yes.
If in Russia, please check available pre-order offers with your local retailer.

Seems like the promised closed beta for Medal of Honor (2010) LE players is now just a two-day window of early access to the open beta.

Many players will likely be upset by this (as will I), along with the fact that there appears to only be two factions in multiplayer again, the USMC and Spetsnaz.

Other than that, most of the pre-order bonuses now seem to be detailed, so everyone can pick and choose what they want. Back to Karkand comes with every Limited Edition version, while the Physical Warfare Pack, SPECACT kits, Dog tag pack, Xbox 360/PS3 Avatar gear, unique 870 Combat/beret, and early open beta access are all retailer-specific.
