EA's Chief Operating Officer Peter Moore has announced that the Battlefield 4 open beta on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC will launch on October 1, before the game goes live on October 29.
Moore commented on the EA website today about the launch and spoke about the transition to the next generation of consoles.
"We want to make it simple to start playing on current generation consoles, and then transition to the Xbox One or PlayStation 4 later. Here's a couple of easy ways how.
Playing early on the Xbox 360 or PS3 means you will be able to learn maps, unlock items, and build stats in Battlefield 4; or create your Ultimate Teams and more in FIFA 14 and Madden NFL 25. You can then seamlessly carry over a lot of cool content from the current gen game to a new Xbox One or PS4 version to get a jump on the competition."
"Offers from many of our retail partners will help you buy Battlefield 4, FIFA 14 or Madden NFL 25 on the Xbox 360 or PS3, and then upgrade to an Xbox One or PS4 version for as little as $10. "
