GameSpot Hosts - Battlefield 3 Multiplayer

Play Battlefield 3 before it's released and meet the GameSpot UK team!

by

With Battlefield 3 set to be one of the biggest games of the year, GameSpot UK is giving 100 people the chance to meet up and do battle in the game's multiplayer a week before release. The event will include a whole host of new modes and maps that weren't in the recent public beta.

Jump in for some prerelease Battlefield 3 action!

Battlefield 3 offers huge maps, the latest weapons, and a wide array of vehicles for players to jump in and wreak havoc in the manner they've come to expect with the series. Following on from the hugely successful Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3 will be released on the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 in the UK on October 28.

The evening event will take place on Friday, October 21, from 18:30 to 21:30 at a secret central London location. There will be 24 PlayStation 3s for you to get your hands on, as well as some nibbles to enjoy.

If you're available and can make it down to London, then simply leave a comment below, comment on our Facebook post, or email us at competitions@gamespot.co.uk with the subject "Battlefield 3." We'll draw 100 names and see the lucky winners on the night!

Also, please note that you must be over 18 to attend the event. Anyone under that age will not be admitted.

@Sirbobislost "Your worrying about graphics? Having only 24 people seems like ". You really should remember the messages you send to people.

@Hardstyler2012 Because this event is in england not America we like both consoles here also I've had my ps3 for 3 years and never had that happen now be gone fan boy this has nothing to do with console wars (also I've had a Xbox for 5 years and also never had an issue with it before you say I'm biased)

@yeah_28 I played the beta on PS3, the graphics looked worse than Metal Gear Solid for the PSone... And the aiming isn't really right imo...I see people strafing to get the crosshair onto the target instead of actually aiming..

@soothsayer42 i just used my knife on the glass but they need to make the movement fasterme and some other person had to reload both primary & secondary guns instead we brought knives to a 12v12 gun fight

One more thing... glass in the beta.. have anyone know they fixed it? cause its pretty horrible shooting 5times at the glass and then wait 3seconds for it to crumble
