Shocktober: Battlefield 4 PC open beta dated for start of next month

This chap is so excited by the prospect of the open beta that he’s shooting everyone else to make sure he gets in. It’s okay, crazy man! It’s an OPEN beta! Everyone can play!

If you’ve been unspeakably excited by the prospect of playing , you’ll probably want to visit the toilet before reading this. Ready? The Battlefield 4 open beta will hit on 1 October.

That’s right! Only, ooh, two and a half weeks to go until everyone can hop into a helicopter, realise they’re a lot harder to pilot than you expected, and then wind up flying – upside down – into a skyscraper, killing yourself and your six passengers. Oh, and if past information has been on the money, said beta will feature traditional Conquest gameplay on the heavily-trailed Siege of Shanghai map.

This all comes from the mouth (well, keyboard) of ’s COO Peter Moore, who discussed all of this in an official blog post. Specifically, he wrote: “The highly-anticipated Battlefield 4 action starts with the Battlefield 4 Open Beta on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on October 1, then the game lights up on October 29.” Can’t get much more to-the-point than that.

No idea how long the beta will run for, but since it’ll be open to everyone, there’s no harm in having a looksee for yourself. And maybe smashing a few helicopters into friendly troops.
