The ongoing Battlefield 1 open beta is going to close its doors on Thursday, September 8, Electronics Arts has announced.
The publisher didn’t mention as to when exactly the beta will end on the aforementioned date. We, though, are more interested in knowing whether EA plans to extend the duration of the open beta.
Voices have already been raised across social media platforms, and now it’s up to the publisher to decide. Back when Star Wars: Battlefront was hosting its open beta, the dates were extended on the basis of a mass request. Let’s hope that happens again and the beta gets stretched to the weekend.
The beta for Battlefield 1 first began on August 30 for Battlefield Insiders before launching for everyone else a day later. For the past week, everyone has been trekking through the harsh sands of the Sinai Desert. The game looks and plays great, minus several (funny) glitches which are expected from an unrefined version.
Yesterday, DICE updated the game to disable the round timer for the Conquest mode. You can now amass a total of 300 tickets before being victorious.
Keep in mind that there’s an exclusive Battlefield 1 Open Beta dog tag up for grabs. All you have to do is reach Rank 15 and play the beta on four different days.
Battlefield 1 is scheduled for an official launch on October 21 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
