In a disgraceful attempt to sway Battlefield 3 fans away from a real thing, we had caught several sites running a date on the unannounced beta.
It’s turn out the so called countdown to the upcoming beta is a fake, and it has been confirmed by Global Battlefield Community Manager at DICE, Daniel Matros.
There’s even a website that ask you to put down your age for a verification, supposedly to make the whole thing looks real.
BF3Preview.com has two countdowns running on their site which would led Battlefield 3 fans to believe that it is the real thing.
That’s not all, they even put a line of links that point to EA’s websites with an official notice from the publisher saying “© 2011 Electronic Arts Inc. Trademarks belong to their respective owners. All rights reserved.”
While PhysicalWarfare.com, another fake website claiming to give you the beta keys, and of course, it’s the same jazz.
So, beware of these websites, if anything, there will be an official announcement from DICE about the upcoming Battlefield 3 beta.
