At last we see the very first official news that Battlefield 3 is actually in the making!
Electronic Arts has just announced that the Limited Edition of the new Medal of Honor game shortly to be released will come with an invitation to the Battlefield 3 beta!. That comes on top of the weapons, ammo and camoflauge that the Limited Edition already offers. Unfortunately the offer is contingent on the beta coming out within 12 months of the release of Medal of Honor. When the game launches on October 12 in North America, you can expect to play the beta sometime around 2011.

Battlefield 3, was only previously confirmed to be in development during financial talks. Battlefield 3 will apparently comes to Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3. Xbox Live Gold membership will be required for access to the Battlefield 3 beta on Xbox 360.

Also an article has just surfaced about the use of DICE’s Frostbite 2 engine for Battlefield 3. It has been a long suggestion that Frostbite 2 will be the powering behind Battlefield 3 which is being used in Battlefield Bad Company 2. DICE is going to build Battlefield 3 in such a way that it is optimized for the PC as well as consoles.

PC gamers will be very happy about this because of the fact that Frostbite 2 will be being pushed to its limits on the PC!. It is expected that the utilization of multi-core processors, 64 bit-OS’s, and advanced lighting. With more power and utilization of the Frostbite 2 engine it`s expected that we be getting 64 player matches again.
