Battlefield V Open Beta Next Month

EA announces that beta testing of Battlefield V begins on September 4th for early access customers, and on September 6th it will open to all. The length of this announcement more than makes up for the brevity of our other beta announcements this evening, and that's not counting the related blog post with word on preloads and other details. Here's word:
This evening before gamescom DICE announced that the Battlefield™ V Open Beta will begin on September 4 for early access* and September 6 for all players on Origin™ for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation®4. The Open Beta will showcase the soon-to-be-iconic Rotterdam map on Conquest mode as well as the Arctic Fjord map on both Conquest and Grand Operations. Revealed just last week, the Rotterdam map will immerse players in a battle fought throughout the streets of Holland where the game’s dynamic physicality and destruction will be on full display. New to the Battlefield franchise, Grand Operations is a multiplayer experience across multiple maps and modes that that takes players through a powerful narrative journey inspired by historical events. All of this Open Beta content can be previewed by attendees of gamescom this week, where it will be playable in Hall 6 on the show floor on PC and Xbox One X.

Also, this evening, DICE showcased NVIDIA’s new RTX technology announced during NVIDIA’s press conference with a jaw-dropping live demo of Battlefield V on PC, one of the first games being developed on the NVIDIA RTX platform to feature real-time ray tracing as a rendering technique. Previously used to pre-render lifelike worlds in movies, ray tracing with the NVIDIA RTX platform brings real-time, cinematic-quality rendering to video games. In Battlefield V, NVIDIA RTX allows DICE to imitate the way light is reflected in the real world enhancing the fidelity of reflective surfaces in every level, map and locale in the game. This will ensure Battlefield V feels more lifelike and dynamic, leading to a more immersive experience that makes players feel like the battle is unfolding in a full 360-degrees around them. The use of real-time ray tracing in Battlefield V is made possible by NVIDIA’s new GeForce RTX 20 series GPUs.

“It’s always been important to us as a studio to stay one step ahead as we look to increase the graphical fidelity in games,” said Christian Holmquist, Technical Director at DICE. “With this new NVIDIA RTX platform, more detail than ever before can now be seen on the battlefield, from recognizing the flash of a muzzle being reflected off a car to spotting the detailed reflection of a devastated facade in a splash of water on the ground. Things in the environment will feel more lifelike and real and all-out war will never look the same.”

“We’ve been close partners with DICE for many years and we’ve spent much of the last year deeply embedded with their team in Stockholm to bring this vision to life,” said Tony Tamasi, Senior Vice
President of Content and Technology at NVIDIA. “With the help of NVIDIA RTX, DICE is creating a revolutionary moment for computer graphics in Battlefield V, as ray tracing has been used in film for years and has long been considered the Holy Grail for real-time rendering in games.”

Building upon this partnership with NVIDIA, both NVIDIA Ansel and Highlights will be also be integrated into Battlefield V for GeForce PC gamers. NVIDIA Highlights automatically captures a gamer’s greatest gaming achievements in video. Integrated directly with the game, it knows precisely when that magic moment will happen and automatically records it using NVIDIA ShadowPlay technology, making it easier to capture those Only in Battlefield moments.

NVIDIA Ansel, available in the single-player War Stories in Battlefield V, is a revolutionary way to capture in-game photography. Users can compose shots from any position, adjust with post-process filters, capture HDR images in high-fidelity formats, and share their screenshots with the world.

Battlefield V will be available worldwide October 19th on Xbox One, PlayStation®4 and Origin for PC. Those that pre-order the Battlefield V Deluxe Edition on any platform will get access three days early on October 16**, while Origin Access Premier members on PC will be able to play the full game on October 11th. Origin Access Basic members on PC and EA Access members† on Xbox One will also be able to jump into the Play First Trial on October11. Players that pre-order any edition of the game with the Battlefield V Enlister Offer will get early access to the Open Beta and other in-game benefits including soldier customization options, access to Special Assignments starting at launch week and immediate access to five weapons to use in Battlefield 1**.

The feigned controversy seems to be heating up, report of BFV preorders being 85% less than Call of Duty has all the youtube pundits churning out videos over analyzing why this could be happening.

It's pretty simple, people aren't burned out on WWII it's just that DICE isn't delivering BF1942 with better graphics. There's nothing in their game to strike up feelings of nostalgia. Using WWII to introduce elements like female avatars into Battlefield was a pretty big misstep, and then doubling down on trying to paint it as historically accurate pushed it over the top.

They should have made Battlefield 2143 or Bad Company 3 instead of a mish-mash WWIIish game that comes off looking more like Battlefield 1.5 meanwhile the list of things they've said will be in the game is being delayed till after release keeps growing.

I don't care anymore.
Just cancelled my preorder.

And YES, I was waiting for BF1942 with better graphics and gameplay.
Next decade I guess.

If I can launch jeeps across rivers, it's a win-win for me (after the game is patched up).

I really don't get the argument against the characters and cosmetics (women, prosthetic, etc). I'll gladly take those if it means all DLC/maps are free and no more splitting of the community.

Also keep in mind this is a FPS game, not a historical reenactment... parachutes popping out of people back during BF3/4 didn't bother anyone every time you jumped off a building. You can nit pick that stuff all day long.

I'm super excited the dorito map hack/targets are gone above enemy heads and that there's limited HP regen and limited ammo (especially for vehicles - no more hill camping tanks all round). My group played Classic Mode prior to BF1 and can't wait to get into this.

Hrm, good choice, I'll probably download it to see how it runs on the aging beast desktop.

All that Nvidia streaming/screenshot/recording bullshit... hopefully that can be disabled for a performance gain, sheesh.

I had forgotten people were still raging about women(and/or cyborgs) being in the game, I'm going to have to buy a copy eventually though.

The Battlefield V boycott will be just as successful as the MW2 boycott.

Not really surprising. The marketing for V is a godamn dumpster fire, especially when compared to how well they marketed 1. They also burned a lot of bridges with the Battlefront 2 so people are probably taking a wait and see approach. Maybe EA will finally learn a lesson. Hah, jk.

People weren't thrilled with the launch trailer and their brilliant response was to tell people not to buy it. They only have themselves to blame for their bad PR. Also consistently failing to deliver what people want. BF1 had no depth or longevity, people hated the challenge systems and again they were tone deaf to the complaints.

I'd be looking forward to this crashing and burning, but instead of them realizing they can't crap all over customers with lootboxes, predatory practices, garbage support, destroying studios, pay-to-win pride and acomplishment, etc... normal EA business and then issue a meaningless apology to make it all better, it's going to be made into another gender politics fiasco.

I haven't bought their garbage since BF4 launched to nigh unplayability for a year (Preordered the Ultimate edition and almost never touched it). Seems like an EA problem to me.

Have BF fans gone to PUBG/Fortnite? I'd expect PUBG got a huge chunk, right? Less to Fortnite and Overwatch.

But those games are what's taking players these days, not realistic or semirealistic deathmatch games.

I think there are enough players to keep the games mentioned and BF going strong. It's up to developers to listen to customers & make sure they have a product that appeals to the target audiece. Between bf4 and bf1 there enough active players today to make bf2143 or bc3 sell extremely well. My opinion..
