Battlefield V open beta is available for those who are eligible for early access. However, the open beta for the game is currently plagued with matchmaking issues and developer DICE has noted that it is investigating.
Community manager at DICE noted in a Twitter post that Battlefield V open beta is experiencing matchmaking issues. He added that DICE is aware of the situation and is currently investigating it.
BE ADVISED: We are aware of matchmaking and squad join issues currently affecting the Battlefield V Open Beta Early Access and our teams are working to resolve this as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.
Given that it is just a beta, matchmaking and performance issues are likely to pop up. If you are also experiencing issues with the open beta then check out the known issues for the open beta along with tips on how to avoid them.
Also, Battlefield V open beta is currently open for those who have pre-ordered the game or have subscribed to Origin Access basic or premier. The beta will be available for everyone on September 6, 2018.
Speaking of the game, before the game was delayed to November, reports were making rounds on the internet suggesting that the game’s preorders are below expectations citing the game’s launch window to be too crowded.
However, that is not the only rumor that has been making rounds on the internet as the report suggests that Battlefield V will include Bad Company 2 Remaster and the battle royale mode is being considered to make it free-to-play.
According to the report, Battlefield V pre-orders have exceeded Titanfall 2 pre-orders and its first-week sales combined which indicates that the pre-orders for the Battlefield V are not that below expectations.
Furthermore, DICE has confirmed that the game will not feature Combined Arms game mode at launch which means that 2 out 3 new game modes will not be available at launch for Battlefield V.
Battlefield V is also one of the first wave of games that will support real-time ray tracing. However, this feature will not be available at launch as DICE has confirmed that it is still optimizing the game for real-time ray tracing so that it can take full advantage of it.
Battlefield V is a first-person action shooter in development at EA DICE and is scheduled to launch in November 2018 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
