Yup got mine, apparently it is for Battlefield 4 owners.

#5 Posted by FameOner (14 posts) -

Ya it is looking like it's for Battlefield 4 owners with an Origin account. From what I have seen.

I'd guess this is another case of "betas are the new demos" and "alphas are the new betas." If they called it a beta and it was still buggy as hell, which should be ok in a beta, people would still flip their shit and assume that it's going to be awful. Alpha still has the "it's early and broken but that's ok" kind of mentality.

Just got my code. It was in my junk. See you online. Cant talk anymore.

does it concern anyone else that this game probably should be into beta by now if it's shipping in march?

It's basically just a title.

#23 Posted by Deranged (1837 posts) -

Fucking believe the hype yo.

Their internal builds are likely far more advanced than what some of us may have gotten emails for, and this is more than likely a stress test for their servers since this is shaping up to be the first true "killer app" on the One.

it out CODS cod ... reached maxed level of 10 , there is no way to no scope

#28 Posted by Codeacious (957 posts) -

They're really calling it an alpha? When the game comes out in less than 2 months?

They "Infinity Ward" did the same with Call Of Duty 4, 3 months before release. COD4 came out Okay? right

An Xbox 360 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare public beta test was announced on August 30, 2007. The beta test was designed to test the servers, find glitches, and help balance out the weapons. It was originally only for residents of the US, but was later available to other countries. The beta concluded on September 30, 2007

Yes... but your missing the point Alpha means not feature complete beta means its feature complete but not final retail build. Calling this thing an alpha IS kind of weird because that means they are saying its not feature complete.

I've got an Xbox One, and BF4, no invite here.

Jesus

He was excited when he saw that fucker.

#35 Posted by ericdrum (404 posts) -

I just watched that video. The dude is a straight caricature of a redneck who plays games. Who would want to spend 1 minute in the company of that dude? He's the exact person that I instantly mute.

For those of you who are saying you have BF4 and got the invite, do you own BF4 on X1?

#37 Posted by Blu3V3nom07 (4027 posts) -

Yes. I signed for the alpha just the night before, anyway. And now I got my code and played it. I own BF4.

Word on the street is that the textures in the alpha were reduced to 25% quality for some reason? I wouldn't particularly call that "feature complete"

#42 Posted by Nasar7 (2500 posts) -

@anywhereilay: That guy is 1) hilarious, and 2) has a point. EA should be giving these out left and right to BF players. Although it's also kinda shitty to say hey our game is broken, why don't you buy our other game instead?

#43 Posted by inspectah (78 posts) -

@demoskinos: Or this is the Alpha build that they showed every one at pax and E3 the internal one is more then likely in beta form now

#44 Posted by bigjeffrey (4156 posts) -

DIS GAME GOOD, Fast As Fuck. That is all.

#45 Posted by Demoskinos (13847 posts) -

@inspectah: Could very well be but then again that still confuses me as was already mentioned they said the textures were cut down to 25% from what they are in the final build. Most people don't have the knowledge to parse that sort of thing. I would think putting crummy alpha in the hands of people who don't know what they are seeing are going to make snap judgements on a purchase based on a incomplete build of the game.

This is one of the more brilliant marketing moves I've seen EA pull in a while. I mean sure the Alpha probably has some practical use as well, but most of the benefits come from people talking about it online.

#47 Posted by Verendus (348 posts) -

Did you guys sign NDA? So is it waste of time asking questions about it?

#48 Edited by fetchfox (1158 posts) -

Saw a video of this somewhere, looks cool. I like the agility of the player character and, of course, the huge mech you get to wreck with.

#49 Edited by Nashvilleskyline (186 posts) -

ah man, haven,t got an invite yet..... Is it still rolling out or my chances are mostly gone by now?

#50 Posted by bigjeffrey (4156 posts) -
