EA's newest game in the Battlefield series, simply titled: "Battlefield 1" has just entered open-beta. Set during World War 1, "Battlefield 1" promises some of the most brutal and likely spectacular combat in the popular series yet - including bi-planes, cavalry charges and what I can only describe as war trains. Check out the latest gameplay trailer from Gamescon here:
The beta is open on all current consoles, and is about a 6-7gb download on all platforms. Here's how to get into the open-beta:
Playstation 4: If you're in North America, you want to use this link. If you're in Europe, you want to get the game from this link. PlayStation Plus is not required to access the open-beta on the PS4.
XBox One: XBox One players can get into the beta with this link. Xbox One owners need to have an Xbox Live Gold membership in order to play.
PC: PC Players, if they haven't already, need to download the Origin application to play but then can get the beta from the "Free Games" section.
The "Battlefield 1" beta features the Sinai Desert map (from the Gamescom trailer above), allowing players to try out things like wartime horseback riding and controlling a giant armored train (of course, there are other vehicles as well). The beta currently has both Rush and Conquest mode and can support up to 64 players per game.
EA has not officially released when the beta is going to end, but it suspected that it'll last at least four days, so go check it out while you can!
