EA has blown the lid wide open in terms of Battlefield V open beta details, and it seems PS Plus won’t be required for PS4 gamers! Unfortunately, Xbox Live Gold is still needed for Xbox One people. Bummer.
While we already reported on when the Battlefield V beta start date and pre-load time will start, the actual end date was left a little ambiguous by DICE. Well, not anymore! Thanks to the PlayStation Store (via the BFV subreddit), we now know that the Battlefield V beta end date is set for September 11, 22:00 BST (5 p.m. ET)!
Don’t forget that those who pre-order will get a two days’ (48 hours) head start ahead of everybody else. Once that’s done, the gates will open to everyone!
In case you didn’t read the text in the image above, it specifically states that a PlayStation Plus membership is needed in order to participate in the open beta. Those on the Xbox One, chances are, an active Xbox Live Gold membership is needed as well.
It’s been a big week for Battlefield V; what with the gamescom footage embargo lifting yesterday, and along with it, a deluge of info and footage has come to surface. Also of note, a recent big rumor has come to light that mentions EA has plans for to roll out Battlefield V’s battle royale mode for free, and even include a Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Remaster post-launch.
