In a press release, DICE has finally announced the Battlefield V beta release date! Those who pre-order or managed to get early access beta keys, the beta starts September 4; while the Battlefield V beta will be open to everyone on September 6. No timed exclusivity for platforms, either, as this date applies to all platforms — PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
In the beta, gamers will be able to play the Rotterdam and Artic Fjord map on both Conquest and Grand Operations.
The Open Beta will showcase the soon-to-be-iconic Rotterdam map on Conquest mode as well as the Arctic Fjord map on both Conquest and Grand Operations. Revealed just last week, the Rotterdam map will immerse players in a battle fought throughout the streets of Holland where the game’s dynamic physicality and destruction will be on full display. New to the Battlefield franchise, Grand Operations is a multiplayer experience across multiple maps and modes that takes players through a powerful narrative journey inspired by historical events. All of this Open Beta content can be previewed by attendees of gamescom this week, where it will be playable in Hall 6 on the show floor on PC and Xbox One X.

Also mentioned in the same press release is the a new trailer specifically made for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX! Watch it below.
DICE showcased NVIDIA’s new RTX technology announced during NVIDIA’s press conference with a jaw-dropping live demo of Battlefield V on PC, one of the first games being developed on the NVIDIA RTX platform to feature real-time ray tracing as a rendering technique. Previously used to pre-render lifelike worlds in movies, ray tracing with the NVIDIA RTX platform brings real-time, cinematic-quality rendering to video games. In Battlefield V, NVIDIA RTX allows DICE to imitate the way light is reflected in the real world enhancing the fidelity of reflective surfaces in every level, map and locale in the game. This will ensure Battlefield V feels more lifelike and dynamic, leading to a more immersive experience that makes players feel like the battle is unfolding in a full 360-degrees around them. The use of real-time ray tracing in Battlefield V is made possible by NVIDIA’s new GeForce RTX 20 series GPUs.
Once we know more details about the beta, we’ll be sure to let our readers know. In the meantime, go check out the list of confirmed guns set to be in Battlefield V!
