It’s time to go to war as the Battlefield 1 Beta has officially started today.
The Beta will let players explore and dominant the Sinai Desert map. Players will experience infantry battles in the narrow streets to dogfights above the mountain cliffs. Be careful to avoid the deadly armored train that charges through the desert sands.
There will be two modes to experience – the first being Conquest. This will be no surprise to many Battlefield veterans. Conquest will allow up to 64 players to fight for control of key objectives spread across the map. Holding these objectives allow for your team to score more points. Conquest brings together all the elements of the signature Battlefield All-Out War.
The second mode will be Rush. Rush is a 24-player mode where a team of attackers must find and destroy the defending teams Telegraph Posts, which can be used to call in artillery strikes. The Defenders can deny the Attackers their mission by disarming explosives they plant on the telegraph positions. Should the Telegraph Posts be destroyed, the Defenders must fall back to the next sector and protect the Telegraph Posts there.
The best part of this beta is Xbox Live Rewards members in the UK, US, France, Germany, and Mexico all can earn Battlefield 1 Rewards. Along with earning an onslaught of Rewards Credits worthy of a game this epic, members can also complete missions like downloading and playing the Open Beta to earn extra entries in the Battlefield 1 Sweepstakes, where you could win an all-expenses paid trip to tour the EA DICE Studios in Stockholm, Sweden.
