You can download it on PS4 using this link if you’re in Europe and here if you’re in North America. PC players need only to start the Origin client and navigate to the Free Games section, where you’ll find it in the beta section. Xbox One players can get it here.
EA has not confirmed yet when the Beta version of the game will end but it will probably be a week or maybe less.
There are two modes to try out in the beta version:
- Conquest. An all-time fan favorite of Battlefield players, Conquest is a large-scale game mode with up to 64 players fighting for the control of key objectives. With large armies on foot or behind the wheel and the addition of fearsome Behemoths, Conquest brings together all the elements of the signature Battlefield All-Out War.
- Rush. In this 24-player mode, the Attacking force must find and destroy the Defending force’s Telegraph Posts, which can be used to call in artillery strikes. The Defenders can deny the Attackers their mission by disarming explosives they plant on the telegraph positions. Should the Telegraph Posts be destroyed, the Defenders must fall back to the next sector and protect the Telegraph Posts there.
