On DICE’s official beta information page, it was listed that the beta would be available in North America, South America, Europe, Southern Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. You will notice that Asia, a potentially substantial market, was left out of this list all together.
However, recently, EA Singapore has released some good news for Asian countries on their Facebook page. They stated, “This is to confirm that we are now a go for the PC Open Beta for all of Asia!” The beta will be available on the same day as the rest of the world; September 29th, but as stated in their quote, only on the PC. Unfortunately, no word on the console version yet.
Many Battlefield fans have been wondering if any of the Battlefield 3 pre-order bonuses like the SPECACT Kit or Dog Tag Pack would be available to purchase separately on a later date. As it turns out, they are available for purchase right now, but only for EA Origin members.
You can find these two DLC items on two different websites listed here:
