Battlefield 4 Open Beta in October
DICE GM Karl-Magnus Troedsson also revealed the Battlefield 4 open beta. Available for all gamers on PC, X360, and PS3, the beta will feature the Siege of Shanghai map in the classic Battlefield Conquest mode. Battlefield 3 Premium members, those who pre-order  Battlefield 4 Digital Deluxe Edition and owners of Medal of Honor: Warfighter (Limited or Digital Deluxe Edition) will have access to the exclusive beta early October for three days. Following that, the open beta will kick off. This will be the perfect opportunity for everyone to Prepare 4 Battle before the October 29 launch.


Pre-order Battlefield 4 Digital Deluxe Edition to get access to the exclusive beta.

During the conference we also announced Battlefield 4 Premium. Designed with our fans in mind, this membership will give players two weeks early access to five future Battlefield 4 expansion packs. Premium users are also prioritized in server queues and will enjoy unique camos, emblems, dogtags and more. Watch the Battlefield 4 Premium trailer below for the very first details of the upcoming expansion packs.

    Not to spam the comment or nothing but can anyone tell me why I can’t find my BF4 premium? I downloaded it and looked at my ordered history and it keeps saying I refund it (I do not remember the time when I refund it), but I don’t remember getting a e-mail confirmation or anything like that.

  • Daatomicsoldier 08.26.13 at 01:54

    And yet again…. DICE makes an amazingly, eye-popping video game that rockets us into outer space, Outstanding job, DICE

  • Daatomicsoldier 08.26.13 at 01:50

    I don,t remember this from the gamescom 2013 press conference but does anyone know if it will let you customize your character?

  • Biggstuff 08.25.13 at 12:54

    I can’t wait for Battlefield4.i love the previous battlefield games but I would love some avatars tho complement my ps3/4. Are there any in the pipe line?

  • TakahashiRyos-ke 08.23.13 at 01:00

    I’m a BF3 Premium member, and I am satisfied with the extra money I spent. But the #1 thing I want out of a BF4 Premium membership is getting a discount on the expansion packs vs. buying them individually, one by one as a non-Premium player. If there is no discount, I won’t buy Premium membership. I don’t care about emblems, dog tags or even early access.

  • xxBMXxxASSASAIN 08.22.13 at 21:53

    Funny how since the day I picked up the preorder of MOHwarfighter.. we sll wsited almost exactly s year.. just to find out we get 3 days early acces to the beta before sny1 else does…

  • NotimPorten 08.22.13 at 01:54

    I’m pretty disappointed. By “two weeks early access” I thought it meant getting earlier access than others, until the full game is released. But just 3 days? Seriously?

  • PaiSand 08.21.13 at 19:49

    Only 3 days for the exclusive access? Really!? I could understand 2 weeks, but 3 days? That’s what it takes to download the game.

  • saadtasmia 08.21.13 at 19:13

    Will there be Levolution on PS3?

  • xxGnomercyxx 08.21.13 at 09:10

    When does the beta come out. i have it on my Origin. is there a date when it’ll be available?

  • ChickenWings122 08.21.13 at 07:45

    What will be the difference between BF4 for the PS3 and PS4?

    • ViciousBroccoli 08.21.13 at 08:50

      I know that the ps4 version will have a total of 64 online players as opposed to just 24. Plus, it will run on 60 frames/minute. Other than that, I do not know what else is different

      • Largoh 08.21.13 at 09:10

        You mean 60 frames a second. Otherwise it will be a slide show…

      • WarTornRemnant 08.21.13 at 11:46

        It’s 60 fps, meaning 60 frames per second. A minute would be unplayable lol

        • ChickenWings122 08.21.13 at 12:19

          So will there any graphic difference? Like, say if I stuck with the PS3, would I be able to enjoy the full experience of the Frostbite 3 engine?

          • PrecedentPeak89 08.21.13 at 14:44

            Well, as for the FULL experience, no. The engine would run a lot better on PS4.

    • DrunkSanTa217 08.21.13 at 22:57

      Graphics, multiplayer, on the PS3 there can only be 24 or 32 players online in multiplayer, on the PS4 64 players can be online in one game at once.

  • RazorBear72 08.21.13 at 07:41

    Open beta….feeling a pissed about preordering warfighter for this

    • twilpawa 08.21.13 at 10:03

      we will get it early

    • PrecedentPeak89 08.21.13 at 14:44

      You guys get three days to enjoy it before they let the rest of us in.

  • Jeremiad c(-; 08.21.13 at 07:27

    Meh, by pre-ordering Deluxe edition you will only get 3 days “exlusive” access… That sounds bad and waste of all excitement. I thought that it would be 2 weeks before like with all BF3 DLC’s.

    • mizzou852 08.22.13 at 07:18

      The beta isnt DLC though so you shouldnt have thought that.

  • DerpyLynx97 08.21.13 at 06:01

    now that I remember, pre-registration details were on the back of the box….then again, that limited edition code better work.

  • DerpyLynx97 08.21.13 at 05:59

    so I feel like I got ripped off pre-ordering MoH: Warfighter Limited Edition. I really hope the Bf4 beta announcement on the box wasn’t a lie.

  • kfrogg1 08.21.13 at 05:31

    what about all of us who pre-order metal of honor to get battlefield 4 beta

  • BrownBacon 08.21.13 at 05:26

    it’s simple on the cover Medal of Honor war fighter Limited Edition gets access 2 battle field 4 beta so if we don’t get it I can sue for false advertisement

  • dschuth 08.21.13 at 05:06

    Wtf happened to the Medal of Honor “exclusive access”????????

    • BrownBacon 08.21.13 at 05:27

      you might be able to sue for false advertisement

    • Savage-Dawg 08.21.13 at 05:28

      YEAH thats messed up they did not mentioned that. We preorded MOH and we are not getting BF4? Thats messed up right there.

  • Tyben23 08.21.13 at 05:03

    Nice job Dice, I been a fan of your games for a long time. Now lets get out there in have fun, oh one more thing. More guns please, and make the M82 sniper rifle playable for those who reached the 100 mark in BF3 or who reach the last level (making it unlockable for anytime use). Thanks for your ears and eyes!

    • Tyben23 08.21.13 at 05:07

      Forgot to add, last level of BF4 for permanent use of M82 sniper rifle.
