  • Aug 31 for everyone else

The Battlefield 1 beta ends on September 8th.

How to get the Battlefield 1 beta

The beta will appear in the respective online stores on the PlayStation Network (under “Free games”), Xbox Live (on the Xbox Store), and Origin on PC. The beta is only available on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Beta size

The beta will be roughly 6 GB in size, depending on platform. DICE has confirmed that there will be no pre-loading of the beta — you just have to wait until it’s released, download, and play.

No beta code is required. If you see any sites advertising codes for the beta, they are fake — the beta is open to all and requires no code.

    …except the exact time of when the beta goes live. It only mentions the day – that’s not really of much help 😛

    Game was plagued by hackers DDos attacks on the servers! I hope this isn’t the future for the launch in Oct. I think they should have expected it and had a game plan. And snipers still kill you accross the map! be prepared.

    We need information how tactical teamwork will work… or not. BF3 had a decent teamwork style for all Squads to work together, Private Servers controlled by private admins and decent mic comm communications.

    If BF1 is just another kid chaos, Run & Gun, Lone Wolf, Run Here, Run There, Shoot Everything That Moves and just depend on respawing to keep the chaos going with NO teamwork… I won’t pay one cent for this thing. BF3 worked for our 100+ member online War Clan. BF4 screwed any teamwork… and the same with Hardline. If BF1 doesn’t change that broken shit… we will wait for BF5 or Bad Company3 and see if EA/DICE screw those up too.
