Today marks the start of the Battlefield 4 beta, at least for a good chunk of Battlefield lovers. Qualifying for this "early" start wasn't at all difficult, but if there remains enough of you out there who have no idea how to get into the October 1 Battlefield 4 beta, EA is keen on fixing that.
If you'd like to start playing the game today, just do one of three things:
- Pre-order Battlefield 4 PC Digital Deluxe Edition via Origin
- Be a Battlefield 4 Premium member (fork over $50)
- Be a registered owner of Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition or Digital Deluxe Edition
Anyone who doesn't qualify and isn't ready to pay up just yet can wait until October 4, when the beta opens up to anyone with an Xbox 360, PC, or PS3. Just download the beta client from Xbox LIVE, PSN, or Origin (PC).
The beta will cover the "Siege of Shanghai" map, plus two game modes -- Conquest and Domination. Check out DICE's new "Levolution" technology, which is just a fancy way of describing the dynamic environments. The beta will also feature Battlebacks, random combinations of new camos, dog tags, and other goods earned by progressing through the multiplayer. Enjoy.
Battlefield 4 will be out October 29 for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. The next-gen versions will be out whenever their respective consoles are released. For anyone who absolutely cannot wait until November, EA does have a special upgrade program going on.
