Battlefield 1 closed alpha is currently going on, and will end on July 19th, 2016. There are many fans who got to play the game, while others are waiting desperately for Battlefield 1 open beta to start. Well DICE has revealed the starting window for Battlefield 1 open beta.

In a Twitch Live stream session, Battlefield German community manager revealed that Battlefield 1 open beta will start shortly after Gamescom 2016. This means the open beta for Battlefield 1 will either start at the end of August or the start of September 2016, as the Gamescom 2016 will take place from August 17 to 21.

Not only this, the community manger also revealed that the insiders will get access to Battlefield 1 open beta 3 days before anyone else.

Battlefield 1 is changing a lot of things in the franchise, like going back to the World War 1 setting. Also DICE has introduced Warbonds to Battlefield 1, which are the in-game currency weapons, skins and other accessories.

The Warbonds will be awarded to players with each level up, like in the closed alpha if you level up to second rank, the player will get 60 Warbonds.

Battlefield 1 might also feature a Pigeon mode, which will function as a kind of Capture the Flag mode. Pigeons were a means of sending messages during World War 1, and given their role it will not be surprising that DICE has created a capture the flag mode out of them.

Recently a Redditor data mined the Battlefield 1 closed alpha’s files, and found out that Battlefield 1 will feature 10 multiplayer maps at launch. The number of maps at launch is on par with Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline. The names of Battlefield 1 multiplayer maps are below.

  • Amiens.
  • Chateau.
  • Desert.
  • FaoFortress.
  • Forest.
  • Argonne.
  • ItalianCoast.
  • MountainFort.
  • Scar.
  • Suez.

Battlefield 1 is scheduled to release on October 21, 2016 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. However, fans can play the game on October 18 through EA Access.
