While it’s been rumored for some time now, video game publishing company Electronic Arts has officially announced the Beta start date for DICE’s upcoming triple-a FPS, Battlefield 4.
“The highly-anticipated Battlefield 4 action starts with the Battlefield 4 Open Beta on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC slated for October 1, then the game lights up on October 29,” writes EA COO Peter Moore in a recent blog post.
The Beta, which will feature Conquest mode on the Siege of Shanghai multiplayer map, will launch exclusively for those who’ve pre-ordered the Battlefield 4 Digital Deluxe Edition on Origin.com, who are Battlefield 3: Premium members, or who are registered owners of Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition or Digital Deluxe Edition. However, the beta will open up to the public soon after, at a later date.
In his post, Moore also confirmed the next-generation launch dates for Battlefield 4: “Nov. 19 (North America)/Nov. 21 (Europe) for Xbox One and Nov. 12 (North America)/Nov. 29 (Europe) for PlayStation 4.”
Battlefield 4 launches on the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 29. Be sure to learn about the various upgrade options for those looking to upgrade their current-gen version of Battlefield 4 to next-gen after the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 launch.
Looks like we’ll be seeing you on the Battlefield October 1 for some Beta testing!
