Battlefield 1 Open Beta Starts on August 31 With No Official End Date; Download Size Around 6GB

Make sure to sign-up and give it a try.


EA DICE’s upcoming iteration of the Battlefield franchise, Battlefield 1, is getting its open beta period starting next week, however, the studio hasn’t released any information on how long it will last.

The Battlefield Beta site recently got updated, revealing the contents included in the beta. It’s going to include the Sinai Desert map for now, with two modes available for players to try out, Conquest and Rush.

Take Control in Conquest Mode

An all-time fan favorite of Battlefield players, Conquest is a large-scale game mode with up to 64 players fighting for the control of key objectives. With large armies on foot or behind the wheel and the addition of fearsome Behemoths, Conquest brings together all the elements of the signature Battlefield All-Out War.

Push the Line in Rush Mode

Rush is a 24-player mode where the Attacking force must find and destroy the Defending force’s 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.

In addition to that, Battlefield Bulletin, a site known for delivering Battlefield news specifically, has reported that the open beta’s Xbox One product page shows a download size of 6.2GB. However, this may change according to platform or if DICE decides to include more content.
