DICE General Manager Karl Troedsson explained in a blog that Battlefield 3 will play better and have improved visuals over the beta. Troedsson explained the beta is early coding.
“The Battlefield 3 Open Beta is based on software that is more than one month old,” said Troedsson.
“Just like normal procedure when releasing a game, the Open Beta has had long lead times due to testing, certification, and setting up. This means that the code you are now playing is actually quite early and not representative of the final game.”
“We had to do this in order to have as many people testing as possible, in order to ensure a top quality experience when the game is released.”
“We appreciate your time and your feedback. The data and feedback from the Open Beta will not only directly affect the final game of Battlefield 3, but its future development and support,” added Troedsson.
“The final game will look, play and sound better than the Open Beta. You have helped making sure of that.”
Battlefield 3 will release out on PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360 on October 25.
