View Full Version : Battlefield Play4Free closed beta is live

I got my email today with a beta key and instructions on downloading it. So I downloaded it.

Too bad it won't work because the game refuses to connect to any servers. Beta builds are cool like that... :headexplode:

nevermind. They must have been updating the servers. It's up now. I'll post my impressions shortly.

So far, I must say that this game has exceeded my expectations.

It's BC2 with BF2 maps/graphics. The entire game is also point based (you get points for simply hitting guys) which is ok. I guess it needs to be that way for an arcade/browser FPS. Hit boxes are great, and overall, gameplay is very solid. The only thing that could be up for debate is the class system. You must choose your class up front and level that player up... only as one class. I think you can create multiple players, but just be ready for that one. That threw me for a loop.

My biggest gripe is lag... there's tons of lag. The gameplay is solid, but the lag kills it with inconsistent movements and random movement spikes. If the lag spikes were gone, this would be a killer free game.

If you guys get a beta key, check it out. It's not bad at all. :)

that link just leads you to the login page, not a registration. When did they offer closed beta key registrations?
