New Battlefield 4 beta info video
EA has released a new, albeit short video on the upcoming Battlefield 4 beta. It’s taken from an interview with DICE producer Patrick Bach, who sets the record straight on the beta information. The beta officially starts on October 4th, but those who have pre-ordered and BF3 Premium will get a 3 day head start (on October 1). The beta ends on October 15th. The beta will be available on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
As we already know, the beta will include one map, Siege of Shanghai, and two game modes, Conquest and Domination. Bach adds that the beta is for players to try out the game, and for DICE to collect feedback and test the game, which is of course the whole point of a beta.
Bach also adds that Battlefield 4 patches and updates will be easier to roll out compared to BF3, which is the result of some of the behind the scenes work they’ve done to BF4 and the new Frostbite game engine.
