You’ve seen the Battlefield™ V multiplayer trailer, perhaps played the Closed Alpha, or maybe watched your favorite streamer get hands-on with the all-new multiplayer experiences, like the multi-map Grand Operations. But now it’s time for the Battlefield V Open Beta*, arriving this September on Xbox One, PC, and Playstation 4.
Here’s a quick summary at what’s included and how you can be an early part of a never-before-seen portrayal of World War 2. Keep close tabs on the Battlefield News page this week for a more detailed rundown of all that’s contained in the Battlefield V Open Beta.
When Can You Start?
The Beta opens to the public on September 6 and runs for a limited time. So, tell your friends to wake you up when September begins.
Pre-load load starts on September 3, at 8:00 UTC.
How Do I Get in Early?
If you subscribe to either EA Access, Origin Access, Origin Access Premier, or pre-order** a copy of Battlefield V today on PC, Xbox One, or PlayStation 4, you’ll get early access to the Open Beta starting September 4.

What Multiplayer Maps and Modes Can I Play?
Players can jump into the up 64-player Conquest mode on the Rotterdam map, set in the embattled Holland city, or the Arctic Fjord map, set in icy Narvik, Norway. In Conquest, you must battle for control of key locations on a massive multiplayer map, using the new Fortifications, towable weaponry, and Squad Reinforcements system.
Two “days” of Grand Operations are also available to players in the Open Beta. In 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.
A Quick Ride on the Tides of War
A preview of the Tides of War — 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.
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.
