The Battlefield: Bad Company 2 multiplayer beta (which we told you about here) kicks off on the PS3 today! If you want in you can do two things- preorder the game at Best Buy or Gamestop and grab a code, or win one from us!

The Battlefield: Bad Company 2 multiplayer beta will feature the Arica Harbor map, where up to 24 players can compete in one of the game’s four intense multiplayer modes called Rush. This new map displays a superb balance of vehicle and infantry combat, as the American assault unit attacks the Russian army base with full force, advancing further through a beautiful desert town and towards the industrial area in a desperate attempt to overtake the Arica Harbor. Heavy vehicle warfare on the first bases gradually turns into an intense infantry fight as the level progresses, showcasing this best-in-class online war experience.

I’ve been hearing nothing but amazing things for this game, so pull yourself away from Modern Warfare 2 and Left 4 Dead 2 for a night to give it a whirl.

To win a code, shoot an email to with BATTLEFIELD in the subject line. To speed things up and get you playing tonight, the first five emails will get one! Those of you who don’t get a code, I’ll have an article with my impressions up as soon as possible. Good luck, and see you in the game!
