Battlefield V‘s closed alpha came and went, and console players eager to get their hands on the franchise’s return to World War II were unfortunately left in the lurch. Thankfully, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players probably won’t have long to wait until they can try the game for themselves, according to a recent email from the publisher.

Following the end of the alpha, EA sent out a followup email to participants to solicit feedback and try to get them to pre-order the game. However, it also revealed that the “next test phase for Battlefield V will arrive in late summer.”

The “next test phase” is most likely the open beta, confirming that it’s coming sometime in late August or early September. This falls in line with Battlefield 1‘s open beta release, which launched on the last day of August back in 2016Battlefield V will most likely make a pre-beta appearance at Gamescom 2018, which takes place from August 21st to August 25th, where the beta’s map will probably be revealed, just like it did with Battlefield 1‘s Gamescom 2016 trailer.

We’re hoping to learn more specific details about the game between now and then, especially when it comes to the game’s recently announced battle royale mode and character customization. A DICE producer recently revealed that all cosmetic items players can earn or buy will be historically accurate and appropriate for the game’s setting, though they might not be items that were commonly used during World War II, and we still don’t know what kinds of items players can earn and what they will have to buy.

Battlefield V is launching on October 19th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
