When will the Beta be?

EA has not revealed an exact date for the beta, however Alpha participants received an email stating that the game’s next test phase will be in August or September. The Battlefield 1 beta started on August 31, 2016, shortly after new footage for the game was revealed at Gamescom in Germany. There’s a good chance the same might happen this year.

What else should I expect from the Beta?

There aren’t a lot of details confirmed for the beta yet, but there are some things we can predict from how DICE did the open beta for Battlefield 1. First, the beta will most likely require a large download. You should also not expect your progress to carry over to the final game, although you’ll most likely receive some kind of reward if you meet certain criteria. Lastly, don’t expect any singleplayer and expect only a small fraction of the multiplayer to be available.

That’s all the info we have for the Battlefield 5 beta for now. When new info is released, we’ll make sure to keep you updated. Make sure to check out the best deals for Battlefield 5 through our price comparison service right here at AllKeyShop.com.
