Electronic Arts has announced that the Battlefield 1 CTE (aka Community Test Environment) is now available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

For those out of the loop, CTE gives players a chance to test the stability of upcoming Battlefield 1 updates, such as maps and other content. PC gamers have been able to enjoy this type of preview content for a while now across multiple games, so the fact it’s now coming to PS4 and Xbox One is a major development. 

If you’re interested in getting a preview of upcoming content, then you’ll need to join the CTE via the Premium Pass for Battlefield 1. If you own it, then you just need to head to the More section of the game’s main menu and follow the instructions given for the CTE. 

Note that you will need to download a rather hefty 40GB file to access the CTE, so make sure you have sufficient space on your PS4 hard drive.

Battlefield 1 was released for PS4, PC, and Xbox One in October 2016. Unlike previous entries in the acclaimed first-person shooter franchise, this latest title takes place in World War One, offering a gritty single-player campaign that sees players controlling various allied forces across multiple theatres of war. 

The game also offers a full-fledged multiplayer experience, where gamers can pick from a diverse range of soldiers, each one with their own unique attributes and loadouts based on their role on the battlefield. 

Players can get to grips with an assortment of authentic WWI-era weaponry, including rifles, sniper rifles, trench guns, pistols, and more, while also piloting a number of vehicles including bi-planes, tanks, armored cars, jeeps, and even take part in cavalry charges.   

EA is reportedly set to launch the Battlefield 1 Revolution Edition this year, which features all upcoming DLC for the shooter. A brand new entry in the franchise is also currently in development for a 2018 launch.
