Days before the official Beta release of the action game Battlefield 1, the game's client is now seen on the Xbox Store. It may perhaps not yet be downloadable, but players are now able to know the game's beta version's file size. Battlefield 1 Beta version file size on Xbox One is at 6.2GB as revealed by its fan site, Battlefield Bulletin.
According to Gamespot, Battlefield 1 beta's product page does not yet seem to exist on all Xbox One systems. Reports say that it does not show any search results. In addition, it was not also listed on both Origin and the PlayStation Store either. For the meantime, further reports will be released when it will be officially out.
According to Game Rant, Battlefield 1 open beta contents are yet to be announced. However, based on previous beta events, it will be expected to include a small portion of multiplayer, perhaps new maps, classes and a couple of load out options. The game's developer, DICE, said that the open beta will be available for all current-gen consoles. But the studio did not issue any statement regarding the game's beta version's early access to the EA Insiders members.
Based on the reports, being an EA Insider is not that complicated since it only requires a 'sign-up with email' step. EA games that undergo beta tests, especially those that were developed by DICE, had been causing division to the fans. Some complains that these beta tests served to be more like demos rather than the actual 'testing.'
According to the said complaints, most of the beta tests are conducted so close into its final release. That means it would be hard for developers to make notable changes. Actually, some players also argue that this beta testing is more likely used as a marketing tool than an authentic test. Nonetheless, the hype is still high on the upcoming Battlefield 1. Fans expect several notable changes on the game especially on multiplayer beta after the testing.
Battlefield 1 will be available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on October 21, 2016.
