Battlefield 1 Beta Early Access Codes Going Out Tomorrow

You had to sign up for the Battlefield Insider program by August 21 to get a code.

61 Comments

Battlefield 1's open beta begins on August 31, but some people will be able to play early.

If you signed up for the free Battlefield Insider program by August 21 and selected your platform of choice, you will receive a code by email to start playing on Tuesday, August 30.

It wasn't known when these codes would go out, but the Battlefield Twitter account today confirmed that codes will be delivered on August 30, the same day that the beta starts for Insiders. A start time for the beta itself, however, for Insiders and everyone else, has not yet been announced.

If you're planning to play on PC, you might be wondering what kind of rig you'll need to have a good experience. The recommended PC specs will be published "shortly," EA said in another tweet. The teams at EA and DICE are still working on optimization efforts, the post mentioned.

The Battlefield 1 beta takes players to the Sinai Desert map, which features horseback combat, a deadly armored train, planes, and more. There are two modes in the beta: Conquest and Rush. Matches can support up to 64 players. Check out this post to learn even more about Sinai Desert.

No Caption Provided

Some other unknowns right now include whether or not other maps and modes will be made available as the beta progresses and when the pre-release play period will wrap up. We'll bring you more details on the Battlefield 1 open beta as they become available.

Battlefield 1 comes out on October 21 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

While I respect people who will eventually buy this turd, these kinds of shooters are becoming too redundant and with EA charging an abnormal price, this should be the last game on people's 'to buy' list this year. My brother played the beta yesterday; it's nothing but a Battlefront WWI re-skin. And plus, the maps and gameplay is boring ! Graphics look like they are from 2006. Having said that, I admire EA's efforts to bring WWI to gamers. Still, I would wait for an EA sale to get this one.

this shit is going to get at least an 8.0 score, as with all boring repetitive, shooters in the same 3-4 maps that took just a couple of months to create. But hey, we got LEVELING SYSTEM and MEDALS/BADGES so I guess it is worth it ! lol, what a bunch of jokers...

Just tried it. Must say it's really cool. Whole new level of immersion, and feels super smooth being only a beta. Gotta buy this one.

How were they saying BF Insiders would get it a day ahead? The fellas out in Europe are just getting it now at around 2pm. We in the States didn't get it yet. A day before means codes go out at Midnight. So you're getting a half day ahead lol.

What was the whole purpose of that boondoggle? At least give Insiders the weekend prior. Anyway, what i'm seeing being Twitched, the game isn't that great at all. I'm more pissed off Verdun was postponed for Xbox

I'm thrilled to be able to play tonight after work! Can't recall "signing up" for the early access, but doesn't surprise me. I've been enjoying Battlefield for years and years and years. :)

@thequickshooter: You're talking about "Rush" mode... There is some controversy over this move, but I'm gunna wait to play it and then decide... The Map is gonna Rip in Conquest mode though, its supposedly one of the Yugest maps in a Battlefield game thus far...

TALLY HO!!!

@dinosaur_teeth: As a PC gamer Rush mode is best with 24 players. 32 is pushing it. 64 is way too much and makes for a huge meatgrinder with little to no room for tactical play.

@thequickshooter:

it's still 64 player... as in 32 vs 32...

Are you talking about team deathmatch mode here? 16 vs 16? Cause if you are, I have a feeling you were never really that into battlefield in the first place...

@thequickshooter: 12v12 is still good. That's double the average Count in other FPS games. Why you think "more" people is better is silly.
