Even though I write news on the daily, it becomes an ocean of content that sometimes I forget that certain things are coming... like the Battlefield 4 Open Beta which opens up on October 1 for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Next-gen consoles will see the next-gen first-person shooter open its doors up on November 12 for the PS4 and November 19 for the Xbox One. Console gamers who use the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the retail BF4 version, where they can build their stats and then transfer them over to the PS4 or Xbox One when those consoles launch in November.
How do you get into the Battlefield 4 Open Beta? Well, you could do what I just did and pre-order Battlefield 4: Digital Deluxe through Origin, or if you've already purchased Medal of Honor: Warfighter in its Limited or Deluxe Editions, then you're ready to go.
