UPDATE: GameSpot has gotten a message from EA saying Bach meant that Battlefield 3 will be getting a “sampler” of the game, in the form of a beta. Therefore, no demo has been confirmed.
You can find our original article below:
Our good friend at DICE, Patrick Bach, has been doing another round of interviews, answering all sort of questions (and handing out a lot of “no comment” answers), this time with Xbox World, where he answered a few of the same questions that have been circulating for a while.
But one question and answer caught our attention in particular: Battlefield 3 will be getting a demo before release. No other details were given, as Bach simply replied “yes” to the question of a demo. We can assume, or at least, hope, the it’ll be a multiplayer demo, much like with Battlefield 2. However, since Battlefield 3 seems to have a potent singleplayer campaign, we might see a singleplayer level or two. Finger crossed
