These days, video games are bigger and more advanced then they have ever been before. Because a lot of these games feature massive amounts of online play, they cannot simply be tested by quality assurance in the studio. This is where betas come in. Not only do they test for bugs, but they also get a sense of reception from players. The upcoming Battlefield 1 has had its open beta running for some time now. Unfortunately, that will be coming to an end soon.
Those who pay attention to the official Battlefield Twitter may already have seen the news. A recent post stated that the open beta would be ending this Thursday, September 8th. DICE has released an update for the remainder of the beta. With this, the round timer has been disabled in Conquest Mode.
Since time is running out, don’t forget that if you play the Battlefield 1 beta on four separate days and do well enough to reach level 15, you will unlock a special dog tag for the fully released title. This may become difficult in the final days, however, due to the fact that more lag and downtime is expecting while DICE is simulating extreme launch situations before the final release.
Battlefield 1 will be available on October 21st for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
