Thanks to everyone that participated in the Battlefield 3 Open Beta, especially those that contributed their feedback and ideas. Your input has helped to make the final release of Battlefield 3 all the better.

Like all good things, though, so too must the Beta come to an end. We've got to get the servers down, make updates and tweaks based upon all the feedback you've given us, and get everything ready for the big day of release.

The Battlefield 3 Open Beta will close on 12:00 PM Noon 10/10/11 CET

i had a lot fun with bf3, hope dice can fix a lot things before the release day

The Battlefield 3 beta is coming to a close soon unfortunately, ending October 10th. A ton of Battlefield 3 beta bugs and issues have been posted by the community and DICE is quickly working to fix the big ones and make sure BF3 is ready for it's release later this month (25th). DICE compiled a top-ten list of Battlefield 3 bugs that will be addressed by release:

1. Battlefield 3 Squad issues: Cannot play with friends within same squad, squads get split up onto opposite teams, etc.
Squad management systems will be introduced to help players control what squad they're in along with other features: creating squads prior to launching Battlefield 3, squad member retainment (staying in the same squad when continuing into other matches, locking squads, inviting squad members, kicking squad members, and muting the annoying ones.

2. Regarding additional Open Beta content and fixes/patches for consoles, including PlayStation 3 issues with chat and party systems.
DICE is focusing their efforts towards the final release of the game, we can all agree that this is a better idea. "While we would like to patch the Open Beta, DICE is currently focusing its available resources on polishing the retail game."

3. Will DICE have enough time to iron out everything by release?
A lot of issues will be fixed, for a detailed explanation look here.

4. Can we have ability to change settings/options before deployment into match on PC?
The ability to modify your settings via the deploy screen has been added into the retail game.

5. Issues with terrain stability and "falling into the map" on Operation Metro
This has been fixed for the beta via a server side update.

6. Kill cam sometimes zooms out too far or outside the map
This has been fixed for the launch of the retail game.

7. A bug that sometimes keeps some players from being able to sprint
This has been fixed for the launch of the retail game.

8. Screen flickering/stuttering. Blue screen remains after respawn. Game locks up after deploying C4 (360)
This has been fixed for the launch of the retail game.

9. Downed bodies appear to be dead, but are not
The DICE team has been looking into this issue - which is caused by a combination of incidents in a confined area - and are working hard to address the issue for the launch of the retail game. It could be this glitch or that the Battlefield 3 player is simply mistaken.

10. Why is the hit detection seemingly different from Battlefield: Bad Company 2?
The netcode is one of the many things that we are testing as part of the Battlefield 3 Open Beta and is not necessarily reflective of the final retail game. The DICE team appreciates and has heard the feedback you've provided and is further optimizing online play for BF3.

Remember, when reporting a Battlefield 3 bug to DICE please be as descriptive as possible.

Beta is over, and I'm JUST NOW playing Caspian Border.

In related news, I made my reservation last night. Time to hunt down a 570. =D

I couldn't connect to a server on Xbox about an hour 1/2 ago but that might just be the terrible 360 servers.

If these fixes along with the many other glitches get fixed this game will be pretty darn fun to play.

Oh snap I can't believe it's almost over. Thanks for the heads up.

I just want the game already. I am pretty anxious to try out Singleplayer and play 64 player maps that are in no way related to Metro!

Me and my kids have enjoyed playing the beta too, for the most part. I played it enough that i want to buy it, HOWEVER just not on release day yet(unless there is a huge sale). With the holidays around the corner, i bet there will be a nice Christmas sale some where.
