'Battlefield 3' beta gets hacked The Battlefield 3 limited beta has been hacked, with gamers now able to play all game modes, including the 128-player simultaneous Paris map.
The official beta only allows for 32 players at-a-time in the map, which was originally shown off at E3.

Developer DICE is certainly not happy with the development and has threatened to have users banned if they use the new levels.

Says the DICE rep:

Please avoid temptation and remain on those official servers while we work to have these servers dealt with. Playing on those servers can cause your account to become compromised, stats to be altered or other issues to arise which may lead to having your account banned by EA.

If your account gets banned it does mean any EA game you have your account would also be unavailable.

If your account is banned, it's not your "Battlefield 3" account, it's your "EA" account. So every other game you have tied to that EA account you're also locked out of.

i downloaded origin played the beta promptly uninstalled. this is one time consoles win because they don't get locked in with some BS software and b3 looks like shit on the pc(in comparison to other games on the same rig with careful config). im actually happier playing it on the 360 and i don't feel good about saying that. how many games will EA ruin.
