As of yesterday the Battlefield 3 Beta is now live. Downloadable for consoles and computer alike however one requirement to getting the beta for computer is that you must also download Origin. It is the gaming client for EA which runs just like Steam and is used to activate and play the EA games. There are currently a few problems according to many of the player reviews on youtube so while it may not be the best game experience yet, I am sure it will get better before the release. In the meantime this should give you a good idea of how the gameplay works and get you used to the layout. Another thing to get used to is the different classes and how exactly you should utilize each one.
