The long wait is over Battlefield 4 fans – the closed beta for those who preordered the title began yesterday. Those who can navigate through the driver and connectivity issues are finding themselves in Battlefield bliss as they push their rigs to the limit on one of the game’s 10 launch maps.
For the rest of us, we have to wait until October 4 for the beta to open to the public. Until then, you can check out some fresh new gameplay taken straight from the beta. What you’ll see is footage from Siege of Shanghai – a map that pits American forces against the Chinese military. American forces will attempt to defend the city from Chinese forces attempting to capture the city.
In the below video, you’ll get to see one of the most impressive examples of the game’s new “levolution” system. On this map, players can take down the central skyscraper to immediately alter the map by making it harder for either team to gain a tactical advantage.
The Battlefield 4 beta is only available on the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Obviously, there will be no beta on the PS4 or Xbox One as Battlefield 4 will launch alongside those respective consoles. Current-gen and PC players will be able to pick up the final game on October 29.
