The Battlefield 1 Open Beta have been live since August 31st. EA has announced that the Open Beta will be coming to an end on September 8th. However, we don’t have to wait long as the game is due to be released October 21st. The majority of players will be sad to see the Beta end. The Beta includes two game types and only one map. An additional map would have been a great bonus for the Beta, as the Sinai Desert map only offered a minor amount of close combat gameplay. The map is extremely open which is a snipers dream however, the sniper weaponry choice was very limited and didn’t include any long-range scopes.
The Beta received an update which removed the game timer for conquest game type. The only way the game can end is by reaching the score limit on either team. The Beta didn’t launch smoothly as the EA servers were extremely volatile. Most players couldn’t connect to the servers for quite some time. Those that persisted eventually got into a game.
