Electronic Arts and DICE have announced that the open beta phase for Battlefield 1 will begin on August 31st. According to EA, the Battlefield 1 Open Beta will include the Sinai Desert map, a “scorching hot battlefield located just East of El-Jifar.”
The Battlefield 1 Open Beta will support two game modes:
- Conquest. An all-time fan favorite of Battlefield players, Conquest is a large-scale game mode with up to 64 players fighting for the control of key objectives. With large armies on foot or behind the wheel and the addition of fearsome Behemoths, Conquest brings together all the elements of the signature Battlefield All-Out War.
- Rush. A 24-player mode where the Attacking force must find and destroy the Defending force’s Telegraph Posts, which can be used to call in artillery strikes. The Defenders can deny the Attackers their mission by disarming explosives they plant on the telegraph positions. Should the Telegraph Posts be destroyed, the Defenders must fall back to the next sector and protect the Telegraph Posts there.
In addition, EA has also released the Gamescom 2016 trailer for Battlefield 1.
