Pre-order Battlefield 3 from Origin, get early beta access

Those who pre-order Battlefield 3 through EA’s new Origin download service will net themselves a nice little bonus in the form of early access to next month’s multiplayer beta. The offer seems to apply only for US customers, for now at least.

MTV Multiplayer noticed the incentive, but there are still no precise details like a start date to be had.

More deets on the beta could arrive any day now though; DICE community man Daniel Matros said to expect news in the coming weeks three weeks ago.

For now, all we know is that the beta will be a public one, so everyone will get to give the Modern Warfare 3 challenger a go sooner or later. Owners of the Limited Edition of last year’s Medal of Honor belong to the former bunch, no doubt.
