Sound The Bugle: Battlefield 1 Open Beta Starts On 31st

“War!” sang Edwin Starr. “Huh!” he added, “Yeah”. He continued to pose a question: “What is it good for?” Well, if you sufficiently abstract and gameify war and don’t think hard about it, it’s a fun setting for a video game, yeah? The thrills, chills, and mustard gas spills of The Great War are coming in Battlefield 1 [official site] on October 21st and developers DICE will let people have a go early in an open beta. They’ve now announced that will begin on August 31st. But first, a new trailer out of Gamescom:

Johnny Cash had strong opinions on spawncamping.

As for the open beta, DICE say folks who sign up for the Battlefield Insider will get early access but don’t say quite how early that’ll be. Or how long the beta will run for. Anyway, here’s the official word on what’s in the beta:

“The Battlefield 1 Open Beta will feature two franchise favorite modes – Conquest and Rush – on the new Sinai Desert map. Playable with up to 64 players, this map includes a new controllable Armored Train behemoth, ridable horses and three new Elite Classes – Sentry, Flame Trooper and Tank Hunter.”

I’m guessing Sinai Desert is the map in that new trailer, yeah? And here are some words on quite how horses work (they’re some sort of hungry bicycle?).
