EA is offering early access to the Battlefield 3 multiplayer beta as a perk for anyone who pre-orders the game via its Origin service.
"Players who pre-order the game from Origin will be granted early access to the Open Beta for Battlefield 3 when it goes live in September 2011," it says on the Origin store page, boasting of its Origin exclusivity.
DICE confirmed last week that there will be two trials; the closed, invite-only alpha trial for which you are able to register your interest, and a more open beta trial for those who purchased a beta-labeled copy of Medal of Honor or the Limited Edition version. Invites for the Alpha trial have already started arriving in email inboxes.
