It’s always neat when developers include Easter eggs in their games – and it seems DICE have done precisely that with Battlefield 1. It all started when a Youtuber, jackfrags, discovered a pair of headphones on the multiplayer maps.

The Battlefield 1 open beta has been running since 31st August – but while Dice and EA have been keen to let as many gamers as possible know when it arrived, they hadn’t told us when it would end. Until now. If you haven’t had a bash on the open beta, which brings us two limited game mods – Conquest, the 64-player classic, and the frantic Rush – you better hurry. EA have let it be known that the BF1 beta will end on Thursday 8th September. It had previously been rumoured that Thursday might be the day when the Great War ... Read More »
