The retail release may have better graphics but by today's standards the graphics of the beta were bad.
Betas do not have 'standards' you tool. Please refrain from posting here.
The graphics will hardly change when the full game releases. I've been in so many game beta tests. BFBC2 Beta graphics looked just like the full game's graphics..
but the game install is the hi-res textures.
all maps for the full release confirmed 8 in total plus 4 more if you get thepre-order bonus back to karkland expansion.
9* in total and then the 4 Bonus maps which come free with a pre-order down the road. And will cost $10 for anyone who purchases the normal edition.
Operation Metro (was the console beta)
Caspian Border (was the pc beta)
Operation Firestorm -> gameplay footage is up
Grand Bazaar -> gameplay footate is up
Damavand Peak (has the large drop that is equal in size to a large portion of Operation Metro's width)
Strike at Karkand
Gulf of Oman
