that's not what it says...

it just says the beta access is "valid" for a year... pretty much...

which means, "any time" before that "1 year mark"... can be tomorrow... can be in Feb, or May, or Aug... or Oct 11... but anytime before then... or so they claim...

could be pushed after that too...

Well this thread never took off. BREAK OUT THE DEFIBS! (see what I did there?)

DICE could take BF2, update the technology withe Frostbite 2, and I'd still be happy. It's my favorite game of all time... followed closely by BF1942.

No stat padding in this thread

I hope I get the job I will be applying for in April so I can afford to buy a new computer (maybe 3) for this game.

Well i created it far before there was much information floating around. After there is actually some tangible information about the game i'm sure people will visit this thread more.

Heres an oldish presentation about destruction in Frostbite 2.0.
