DICE have announced that the PC beta for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will commence on the 28th of January and run until the 25th of February. The beta features one map, Port Valdez.

Regarding the map, DICE write, “The battle for Port Valdez is fought alongside the waterline towards a great oil industrial landscape in the Alaskan mountains. Using basically everything they've got the Russian forces are launching an airborne assault to knock out the oil industries in the area. In their arsenal there are Main Battle Tanks as well as fast-moving Quad Bikes and mobile armored AA. It's a vehicle-focused battle, but with plenty of infantry combat.”

Kotaku report that the PC beta was delayed due to the popularity of the PS3 beta. To enter, players should visit the beta sign-up page closer to its commencement date.
