What To Expect From The Battlefield V Open Beta
EA will be kicking off the first open beta of Battlefield V in the next few days, with gamers who pre-ordered Battlefield V - or those who are members of Origin Access Basic/Premier or EA Access getting into the game a full 48 hours before everyone else.
The company explains in its press release that the Rotterdam map will throw Battlefield V players into "a battle fought throughout the streets of Holland where the game's dynamic physicality and destruction will be on full display". There'll also be the new Grand Operations game mode that arrives for the first time with Battlefield V. Grand Operations is a "multiplayer experience across multiple maps and modes that takes players through a powerful narrative journey inspired by historical events".
DICE has two "days" of Grand Operations up for play in the Battlefield V open beta, with the developer explaining "this modular narrative experience inspired by historical events, each day is represented by a round of play, and player actions have a direct impact on the next round. Up to 64 players can deploy in the Airborne and Breakthrough modes on the Arctic Fjord map".
We'll also get a glimpse of Tides of War, which is the "ever-evolving journey through WW2 featuring a new narrative every few months - also awaits players in September. Each chapter of Tides of War is designed to focus on an aspect of the era, with unique gameplay experiences to drive players forward". DICE continues: "A five-part Tides of War Chapter Event will be part of the Open Beta. Players who complete this challenge will earn an exclusive in-game Dog Tag in Battlefield V at launch. Note that the Shock Troops Chapter Event is just a small taste of Tides of War - there's a lot more coming".
