We have just told you about the schedule for the upcoming Black Ops 4 beta and now it is fitting that Battlefield 5 developers DICE have also decided to announce some news for Battlefield 5 fans.
In a new blog post, the developer has revealed for the first time that the Battlefield 5 beta will begin in September. There is still no exact start date yet unlike the Black Ops 4 beta which kicks off on August 3 on PS4, but DICE has said that it will be sometime in ‘early September’.
This means that essentially those who enjoy both games can play Black Ops 4 beta first, then wait a few weeks for the Battlefield 5 beta to begin then decide which game you want to buy between the two.
The Battlefield 5 open beta will feature the map Arctic Fjord on the Grand Operations and Conquest game modes, all of which were recently playable if you were lucky enough to get in on the closed alpha.
DICE has talked about what happened in the closed alpha and how they plan to improve aspects of gameplay in time for the open beta, which you can read about in full here.
As we wait for the start date of the beta for everyone, let us know if you are already sold on getting Battlefield 5 this year and not Call of Duty Black Ops 4.
