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.

Dead Space 2 announced

It’s official: Dead Space, Visceral and EA’s successful 2008 survival horror game, is getting a true sequel.

Announced for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360, EA’s Nick Earl (Senior VP, Group General Manager) promises “loads of necromorphs that need killing!”, along with “plot twists that will surprise you and a huge cast of twisted, disgusting monsters that are sure to scare the daylights out of you.” Unfortunately, no release window was provided, which suggests the wait will likely be quite long.
