EA launching Bad Company 2, C&C 4 betas today

For Electronic Arts, today is all about testing out multiplayer action, with the launch of two betas – Bad Company 2 and Command and Conquer 4.

With BC2 set to release on March 2nd and C&C4 due for March 16th, both betas offer a fairly big head start in the world of competitive online play. GameSpot appears to be the source for C&C keys, while BC2 keys can be obtained via pre-ordering the title on Steam, amongst other means.

Console gamers aren’t left out in the cold, with the multiplayer Bad Company demo now available on Xbox LIVE, with the PS3 version arriving next week.

C&C4Cover

Command and Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight, apparently the conclusion to the 15-year Tiberium saga which binds the franchise together, is set for a March 16 release in the United States and a March 19 release in Europe.

Developed by EA Los Angeles, the company responsible for the C&C / Red Alert franchise since 2003’s Zero Hour (and incorporating the series creator, Westwood Studios), the game offers the standard singleplayer campaign and co-operative modes, as well as a “5v5 objective-based multiplayer mode”.

Those who pre-order the title will receive the soundtrack, an exclusive prequel bonus mission, and early access to the beta for the 5v5 multiplayer mode.
