Battlefield 4 Beta Begins Fall 2013, Not Exclusive to MOH Pre-Order

DICE has confirmed that the “exclusive” Battlefield 4 beta being offered with pre-orders of Medal of Honor: Warfighter, will not be the only way that you can access it.

EA officially announced the existence of Battlefield 4 yesterday, by revealing that pre-orders of the Limited Edition of Medal of Honor: Warfighter would include an “exclusive” beta. This left some fans a little upset as it looked like this was the only way to obtain access.

Battlefield 3 community manager Ian Tornay took to Reddit to clarify the situation, “There will be other ways to get into the beta aside from Medal of Honor: Warfighter,” he explained. “At this time, however, it is the only way to guarantee entry.”

Tornay also addressed concerns regarding the amount of time between the release of Battlefield 3 and the announcement of Battlefield 4, “We’ve been seeing a lot of concerns about the pacing of release (i.e. “only” two years after BF3). I think it’s worth noting that DICE has released a Battlefield game every two years or sooner AND Mirror’s Edge at least every two years,” he explained. “I truly believe that we’re in one of the best positions to be creating our next title – Frostbite 2 has matured, we’ve been gathering fan feedback like crazy, Battlefield 3 continues to expand with features which we can learn from, and we’ve got more data about how people play than ever.”

He concluded by promising that support will continue for Battlefield 3 well into 2013, and that work on remaining DLC packs will be unaffected by Battlefield 4‘s development.

Finally, EA revealed that the beta will begin late next year, “The exclusive Battlefield 4 beta will be available in fall 2013,” the publisher said. “Additional details regarding Battlefield 4 will be revealed at a later date.”
