Battlefield 4 Beta blasting consoles and PC soon

Take the fight to the streets of Shanghai in the beta for EA and DICE’s impressive current/next-gen military shooter.


Kicking off very soon, the beta for Battlefield 4 will allow players to experience the Siege of Shanghai map that’s been used in pretty much every promo and demo of the game seen so far. The map got folks chatting almost immediately for the sheer size and scope of it and players will be able to get their hands dirty right in the thick of it with either Conquest Mode or Domination Mode.

How do you get into the beta? Well actually, there’s a number of ways all leading up to the general open beta that starts on October 4th.
