nnnddd101010 Yep. You can check out Caspian Border footage here. It will be scaled down in the console versions, though.

I don't understand.. The article says that we should wait for Caspian border and other 64-player maps.. And nnnddd101010 says Caspian Border is going to be released. (Im on PC) I thought that Caspian Border had already been played out, and that they removed it.. Are we going to be able to play it again? When does the Beta end?

Open beta is from Sept. 29 to Oct. 10. On PC, there are certain (password protected) servers that play Caspian Border. But Caspian border WILL become available for ALL to play during the last week of the beta. 64 players on PC, and like chautemoc says, a scaled down 32 player version for consoles.

Thank you very much for that information! So Caspian Border could become playable from sometime tomorrow lol. That's cool.

Gangsta692 nnnddd101010 Regarding Caspian coming later, I have heard nothing of the sort besides rumors. You sure on that? Don't forget they shut down the limited Caspian servers and said 'thanks for testing, shutting down now'.

Is this getting buggier for anyone else? I basically can't prone for dropping out the map any more, and twice today I've just dropped dead and been told suicide :/

Clarified to reflect it's connection issues only that've been resolved.
Thank you. I'm happy it's appreciated.

nnnddd101010 I realize you're at least half-joking, but taken seriously, it's the kind of thinking that leads to a lot of unnecessary fan backlash (a good example being the PC community reaction to Operation Metro being the beta map). Many 'fans' equate what they want to what was supposedly promised to them, and freak out when they don't get it. It hurts the developer/fan relationship. Not good.

are they going to release any other maps or game types in the beta at all

chautemoc: I suppose you're right, but so are the concerns fans have. Only 1 map for a multiplayer beta is just plain silly, and if you are going to do that, it should be the best map (or one of the best) available.

Probably not. If they do, it will be Caspian Border again, and on PC only, but I doubt it.

nnnddd101010 They've said every bit of time they spend on the beta is time not spent on the final release, so one map is plenty understandable. Time is tight enough as is.
