Battlefield 3 beta hacked to support 128 players

EA threatens with banning, according to reports

The Battlefield 3 beta has been hacked to support up to 128 players, but those taking part in uunofficial servers could see their EA account banned.


Battlefield 3 blog has snapped a screenshot of one of the hacked Battlefield 3 beta servers, which has been given a somewhat aggressive name.

The Operation Metro and Rush maps are available in the Battlefield 3 beta, each supporting 32 players officially. There have been sightings, however, of servers boasting 64 and 128 player capacity.

EA has warned players not to join hacked servers via Battlelog, threatening users with EA account bannings.

We spent some hands-on time with the Battlefield 3 beta (in legal servers only) the day before its public release and scribbled down our impressions. Have a read of what we thought.

Check out footage from the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the beta if you haven't already.
