New Battlefield 4 beta information

Beta date, duration, map, platforms, and game mode revealed.

Battlefield 4 beta details
During DICE’s demo of Battlefield 4 on stage at GamesCom, they revealed some new beta details as well. The multiplayer beta, which will be available to those who pre-ordered the game and those who own Premium on BF3, will take place in the first weeks of October. The Battlefield 4 beta will be available worldwide on all platforms — with the exception of PS4/Xbox One, which won’t even be released at the time of the beta test.

The Battlefield 4 beta will last for 4 days, and will include the Siege of Shanghai map, with conquest being the only game mode available. Additionally, DICE is calling this an “open beta”, which means that those who pre-ordered and Premium members will likely get a day or two head start on the beta, before the masses (everyone else) gets access. Just as it was the case with BF3 in 2011.

Battlefield 4 beta facts

  • Date: October 1 – October 4

    I think Battlefield 4 maps will be kind of boring on ps3 and xbox 360, But well let’s wait and hope.

    It gives DICE minimal time to sort out any possible bugs, but it will be good for testing the servers and will help alleviate some of the latency that comes with the first week or so post-launch. 🙂

    Great. Another beta in an urban map. That’s what we need. I’m already sick of this map and the game isn’t even out yet.

    Any chance we sill see cool CQB – medium range maps, thinking of Grand Bazaar and Seine….?

    If this game goes all “huge maps and 70+ players”, then it will die.

    Why do you never publish my comments? I’ve never posted anything abusive or offensive.
    But at least half a dozen comments and observations I’ve make in the past weeks have simply not appeared.
    I posted twice in the last fortnight alone, yet I’ve had only one post shown since July.

    The campaign looks like the original bad company with sandbox maps and vehicles
