Rumour: Battlefield 4 Beta Begins On September 24th

A leaked image on the internet has revealed a possible date for the Battlefield 4 Beta, September 24th 2013. This beta will be for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 platforms and will be an “exclusive access” beta only. That is people that pre-ordered will probably only get access straight away, while the open beta is expected to come a bit later possibly 2 days later. Or EA could be arranging it like they did with Battlefield 3 where the open beta comes at the said date (24th September) and the closed beta comes a few days earlier.

Gamers will be able to test out the Frostbite 3 engine, fight on land, at sea and in the air and then pass their feedback onto DICE. We should expect more details to arrive when the multiplayer gets a reveal at E3 2013. It is worth noting that Battlefield 3 had its beta on September 29th and was released on October 25th. Battlefield 4 is going to have its beta 5 days earlier, September 24th, and be released 4 days later than Battlefield 3, on October 29th.

Battlefield 4 is expected to be released in North American on October 29th and on November 1st in Europe. This will be on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 while Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will probably come at a later date once the game has been fully optimised and made compatible with the new gaming consoles from Microsoft and Sony.

What are your thoughts on BF4? Are you looking forward to the open beta? Have you pre-ordered?
