Users waiting for Electronic Arts’ (EA) highly-anticipated first person shooter Battlefield 4, scheduled for launch on 29 October, will be able to get a first glimpse of the title when the game opens its doors to an open beta.
EA’s CEO Peter Moore wrote in a blog post that users will be able to download the beta on 1 October, and in doing so, will be able to navigate the maps and plan routes before the title gets released on next-gen consoles such as the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
“The highly-anticipated Battlefield 4 action starts with the Battlefield 4 Open Beta on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC slated for October 1, then the game lights up on October 29,” Moore said in the post. “Playing early on the Xbox 360 or PS3 means you will be able to learn maps, unlock items, and build stats in Battlefield 4.”
He also gave details for FIFA 14 demo and Madden NFL 25. “Create your Ultimate Teams and more in FIFA 14 and Madden NFL 25. You can then seamlessly carry over a lot of cool content from the current gen game to a new Xbox One or PS4 version to get a jump on the competition.”
