Battlefield 1 beta runs for nine days, features two game modes

The Battlefield 1 beta begins this week on PS4! On August 31, 2016, EA DICE’s first-person shooter enters its open beta phase, meaning you can download and play it in just a few days.

The Battlefield 1 beta will run from August 31 to September 8 and gives players access to two game modes: Conquest and Rush. The action will take place on a map called the Sinai Desert.

Battlefield 1 PS4 beta features one map

On the official Battlefield 1 website, EA says:

“Sinai Desert offers a diverse gameplay experience that takes advantage of all of the elements that make World War I a perfect setting for a Battlefield game. You’ll ride full speed on horseback across huge desert areas and hunt for enemies in narrow streets and alleys. You’ll have shootouts from windows and rooftops in tightly contested locations where Capture points are alittle too close for comfort. You’ll wrestle over the skies with fighter planes or crush through the buildings with heavy tanks. It’s the clash of eras and technologies all wrapped into one hectic conflict, mixed together with classic Battlefield gameplay.”

Battlefield 1 Insiders will apparently get early access a day before on August 30.

Battlefield 1 sales are predicted to hit 15 million. Set during World War I, players can look forward to using all the weapons from that era, and will be able to fly zeppelins, ride horses and switch between eight classes in 64-player battles. Battlefield 1 is due for release on October 21, 2016.
