Default BFBC2 PC demo date revealed !

Advertisement

DICE has recently announced that the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 public beta for PC will start on January 28 and will run through February 25.

Beta Details:
Beta Begins/Ends: Jan 28th/Feb 25th
Map Name: Port Valdez
Players: 32
Game Mode: Rush
Environment: Snow
Theme: Vehicle and Infantry

Misc. Details
Steam Beta: Yes there was a leaked image of a Package file we propped on Steam. People with illegal accounts can see games in this environment, but this is not a Beta in the term of Public Test Beta, but a real development Beta installer client for the Steam version of the full game. We are however working with Steam to have the Public PC Beta available on Steam, but can't confirm this quite yet so cross your fingers Steam users. :-)
Anti Cheat: We're going with PunkBuster supporting the same options BF2 and BF2142 had to run unranked without PunkBuster.
Mod Tools: There will not be mod tools for BFBC2. However a majority of the the games logic is controlled by the server and there will be Serverside control options for the dedicated servers.
Public Server Files: We will not distribute these publicly. There are many factors for why we have decided this with the biggest factor being security & integrity of our game & Dedicated Servers.

Awesome!
Can't wait!


Only downside is PunkBuster.
I always have some kind of problem with that.
Hopefully it will work now though.

The system requirements are on the site somewhere, so you can find it out.

Can't wait to get my hands on this game, I'm also kinda worried about Punkbuster though, I have had my problems with it in the past.

I've had some problems with it too, but mine went away when I updated PB manually.

Have you guys tried it? Know there are more people strugling with PB.

Yeah, unfortunately they're still using punkbuster.
I personally haven't had many problems with punkbuster, but I prefer VAC.
