With Battlefield V launching very soon, EA and DICE are pleased to announce today that there will be an open beta that starts on September 6 for all players across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Origin, with its early access starting on two days earlier on September 4.
Fans who are eager to get into the early access can gain entry if they have pre-ordered the game, or be a subscriber of Origin Access Premier, Origin Access Basic, or EA Access for Xbox One.
Here’s an overview of the open beta courtesy of EA:
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.
