Battlefield 1 FREE open beta [PC / PS4 / XBO]
Battlefield 1 is on FREE open beta on PC/Origin, PS4 and XBO from today and until Sep 8th

About 7.5GB download on PC, I'm waiting for mine to complete so I don't know how's the game itself yet.

I know it's widely known it would be available to try from today, but maybe someone won't mind a reminder

Got it yesterday, it either crashes or can't get a server connection, works for some given the forums on ea

Thanks for the info, help setting expectations right

May I ask what platform you're playing it on? I don't expect crashes to be fixed (through game updates?) during open beta, but hopefully the server issues will

It's 6.1GB and up on the store for PS4 players

playing it last night on ps4, apart from few visual glitches it played amazingly! Great graphics, sound, the eb and flow between the teams worked brilliantly... can't wait to jump on it again after work!

launch it directly not from origin

worked fine for me yesterday and today on PC

​Pc, it's quite random as to the issues, I thinks it's a lot to do with graphics drivers myself,

Just go to the store on whichever console you want to play on. Should be listed there

PS4 version downloaded... Took a few attempts before it would connect to EA servers but very smooth once connected.

Does't seem to be available on the PlayStation Store for me at the moment.

Playing it now. No server issues, but the game crashed out two times in three games, so I guess it does need some work. Desert map is fairly fun.

Thank you, that direct link worked, unlike the search function of the PlayStation Store!

Can't find it on the PSN store anyone know why ??

It's 6.5GB or there abouts on Xbone and PS4, think it is roughly the same for PC. And nope, you don't need to pre-order to play the beta. Just go to origin.com/en-…tas

​Yeah oddly I had a quick game and it ran perfectly, I was pleased until there was one person in the middle of the map spinning around head shooting everyone! Can mean only one thing sadly............

Downloading now,

Thanks OP downloading now on PS4.

Anyone managed a game on the Xbox One? Failing to connect for me.

Here's some gameplay footage >

I can't see anything original here, being able to ride a horse maybe. Looks like the usual Battlefield gameplay to me, so if you like that then seems like an OK game. Dare I say it the gameplay seems a bit simplistic like Star Wars Battlefront.

Download is about 7.5GB on PC, no need to preorder, you can go ahead and download it for free (need Origin client and a free account)

Agreed, nothing very new so far, and it definitely reminds me of SW Battlefront. Still worth a go while free though

YUP looking on the EA server status map its most of England, huge parts of Europe and the East coast of the USA BUT REMEMBER Those of us who downloaded it yesterday had the advanced key, it went on general beta testing today so I would imagine tens of millions are trying to download. I blame the console kids, not us PC master race types.

Can't even download it off origin for some reason. I think servers are overloaded?

I would imagine the servers are getting rather warm and toasty to be honest, the security guards will be walking round in Bermuda shorts and flipflops to keep cool.

​worked perfectly!

Bizarre, servers are down on my new PC (error states "matchmaking failed"), yet the game is running fine on my old PC.

Both connected via ethernet to same router and broadband. oO
