    Battlefield 3’s Caspian Border Opens to PC Beta Testers Starting Today

    Battlefield 3's Caspian Border Opens to PC Beta Testers Starting Today Battlefield 3's Caspian Border, packed with vehicles and jets, is getting one last test before the open beta shuts down.

    Developers DICE writes on the Battlelog blog that they're opening up the map this weekend to do some load testing using 64-player matches.

    Do keep in mind that this is a beta and a stress test, so it is likely not going to be the smoothest online gaming you've participated in.

    "As we are again specifically testing 64-player server configurations, this test will be for PC only. The Caspian Border servers will be available for all PC players to join. Caspian Border will be available starting Friday, October 7, in the afternoon (CET)," according to the blog post.

    My PC probably won't run this game, but where can I get it?
    NVM I figured how to get it:

    Anyone running this test from EN? This weekend is slated as a SWTOR weekend for me, but I'd run a few maps if other are. That said, if anyone is in SWTOR beta, let's hook up there instead

    I tried to play the game on PC, got an error saying that My Intel HD graphics sucks. LOL
    BTW, BF3 will have better graphics on consoles when the full game releases.

    Yeah I get the feeling that the console betas are a few builds old. Which is okay and makes sense. get something back at a semi stable state, stress it out.. check your telemetry maps, tweek, press gold, launch, patch, win.

    Just played BF3 64 match on Caspian Border. All the good servers are full so it's hard to join a low ping server. I got into some euro server, the lag wasn't that bad even though the ping was 180. I ran up on some people as a sniper and killed 2 with my pistol no problem. The vehicles are fun, I flew the jet and the heli. Haven't flown in ages so I'm somewhat rusty. Jets have no perks when you start so you're going to get owned hard by BF vets in jets. The map looks great, my computer can handle it which is awesome. I wish the destruction was as prominent as BFBC2. I had fun sniping people, it's a lot more open so you can actually see unlike the metro level.

    Just a quad core phenom black processor and nvidia 250 gts. That's why I wasn't sure it would run BF3, but it worked fine. What's the specs on your rig Stre?

    My fiance rocks the custom box these days. I couldn't even tell you what's in there without opening it up. It's to the point where she says "such-and-such is busted/outdated, which should I buy?" .. Then open newegg on her browser and say, "get that one." and she does.

    I run a Mac Pro, and boot into a gaming Windows partition.

    Two 2.4GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon “Westmere” (8 cores)
    32GB DDR3 mem
    2x1x1x1 TB drives
    two geForce 8 series vid cards (need to upgrade these bitches badly)

    For today's gaming it does the trick aside from the vidcard. the bootcamp shit has a hard time using the 2nd processor and the 2nd vid card slot in terms of multi tasking. I need a new card pairing, and maybe a sexy little solid state drive for the active projects I'm working on.

    I'll probably grab the 2xRadeon 6850 solution when the next gen ATIs come out this holiday season. Might be able to grab this for ~$150, or even 125.

    Honestly, she is a little more hardcore on the PC end than I am. Most of my desktop time is spent editing video.

    Edit on the Mac, play the PS3 while it renders. Rinse. Repeat.

    She's talking about buying a completely new setup. She has a handful of parts that are about to be semi-outdated, and she wants a new case. If she buys a new box I'll be taking her current one and figuring out how in the fuck I'm going to manage all of those displays... then having Mac + PC + PS3 editing/gaming station.

    Damnit, now I actually want her to buy the new box... lol.
