Should I preorder Battlefield 4 for the beta?

I mean, I'm most likely going to get it on release date anyways on PC, but couldn't there be better deals later on when it comes close to the release date? I never bothered with bf3 premium because I bought the game late.

Sure, if you like playing sever browser simulator why you sit there trying to join a game on EA's sure to be overly stressed servers.

This. Betas are almost always disappointing. Up to you really.

On the other hand it wont really cost you anything either. There will be no price reduction or sale in the first couple of months after release. Maybe you can get a deal if they sell the game bundled with a GPU, or if it becomes part of AMD's "never settle" promotion or something like that.

I'm hoping that it will be part of the Radeon Rewards deal.

considering the Exclusive part of the beta is only 3 days long, I wouldn't

Though it does still give you exclusive access to more maps and modes.

Again, not really. The so called preorder only bonus China Rising is going to be just like every other EA "Limited Edition" the last few years. It'll be part of every retail copy in the first shipment preorder or not. The only time you wouldn't get it in the first few months would be if you bought digital after the preorder period. And if you intend to get Premium it's a moot point anyway because you'll have it regardless

This is the correct answer, but I'll still be getting Premium before the 2nd map pack comes out.
