EA's UK Origin store now also grants early access to the Battlefield 3 beta when you pre-order the game, Eurogamer has discovered.

Specifically, you get 48 hours early access to the test. And that test will happen in September.

The pre-order incentive was spotted on the US Origin store earlier today.

It's not clear whether existing pre-orders will be retroactively granted early access to the Battlefield 3 beta. Eurogamer is investigating this now.
