Battlefield 3's open beta wasn't just a fun excuse to build up some amazing stats; DICE relied on that beta for crucial information on how Battlefield 3 ran on all platforms.
The team has made hundreds of additions and changes based on the feedback they gained from the open beta and over on the official PlayStation Blog, the team has highlighted four specific changes made to the game post-beta:
Improved Squad Functionality
There will be improved squad functionality in the retail game (including but not limited to): the ability to create squads prior to launching into a game, sticking with your squad when joining a game and continuing together through future games (if team balance on the server allows it), inviting friends to a squad, and changing squads once in game.
More Accessible Settings Menu
The ability to modify your settings via the deploy screen has been added into the retail game.
Improved Kill Cam
In the Open Beta, the Kill Cam would sometimes behave erratically. This has been fixed for the launch of the retail game.
The netcode is one of the many things that we tested as part of the Open Beta and it was not necessarily reflective of the final retail game. The DICE team appreciates, and has heard, the feedback you’ve provided and is further optimizing online play.
Battlefield 3 launches on October 25th on Xbox 360, PlayStation Network and PC. For more on the game, visit EnterBF3.com!
