This just showed up over at Planet BattleField, and there's actually quite a bit more to see in the Caspian Border extended trailer!
You know I just have one thing to say. EA better not pull that bullshit where all of the maps are on the disc but they unlock them in groups. That's bullshit. I deserve all the maps on the disc on launch day.
So very nice to hear that all maps will be for every game mode.
I was extremely happy to hear that as well. I wasn't expecting it but it's very satisfying. Especially since there were some really good maps you could only play in one mode in BFBC2---that drove me nutz.
Full breakdown of the beta, start-end dates, when, where, why, how: PlanetBattleField.
Been speaking to quite a few of the dev team through Twitter, and although the beta map is, again, Rush/Operation Metro, they've changed the layout (MCOM placements) amongst other things, so even though you may or may not have seen it in action via YouTube, ect, the experience is vaulted to be "improved".

Don't even get me started on what I thought of it, hardly any of the players knew what they were doing, how to play the mode, how traverse the map, it was horrible. Footage none-the-less.
And if any of you still haven't seen the full 99 Problems trailer (which Jay-Z made worse) here's the full version:
