It’s time to experience the dawn of all-out war! The Battlefield 1 Open Beta begins today. There will be horse charges, battles with Armored Trains, and war on an absolutely epic scale.

Download Battlefield 1 Open Beta for Xbox One from the Xbox Games Store

You’ll be playing the Sinai Desert map, a scorching hot battlefield located just East of El-Jifar. Experience infantry skirmishes in the narrow streets to dogfights above the majestic cliffs.  If your team needs a boost, reinforcements will arrive in the shape of a deadly Armored Train charging through the desert sands.

There will be two modes to try out, too. Conquest is a large-scale game mode with up to 64 players fighting for the control of key objectives. With large armies on foot or behind the wheel and the addition of fearsome Behemoths, Conquest brings together all the elements of the signature Battlefield All-Out War. The second mode is Rush, a 24-player mode where the Attacking force must find and destroy the Defending force’s Telegraph Posts, which can be used to call in artillery strikes. The Defenders can deny the Attackers their mission by disarming explosives they plant on the telegraph positions. Should the Telegraph Posts be destroyed, the Defenders must fall back to the next sector and protect the Telegraph Posts there.

As an added bonus, starting today, August 31, Xbox Live Rewards members in the US, UK, France, Germany and Mexico can take part in Battlefield 1 Rewards. In addition to earning an onslaught of Rewards Credits worthy of a game this epic, members can also complete missions like downloading and playing the Open Beta to earn extra entries in the Battlefield 1 Sweepstakes, where you could win an all-expenses paid trip to tour the EA DICE Studios in Stockholm, Sweden. Other prizes include cool Logitech G633 headsets, digital versions of Battlefield 1 Early Enlister Deluxe Edition and Battlefield 1 Standard Edition, Xbox Live Gold Subscriptions, and Xbox Gift Cards. To get all the details, please visit here.


Finally, anyone that plays the Battlefield 1 Open Beta on Xbox One in the United States and Canada and streams their gameplay via the Twitch App will be automatically entered to win a trip for two to TwitchCon 2016 in San Diego. The winner will receive two general admission tickets to TwitchCon, roundtrip airfare to San Diego, four nights’ hotel accommodation, and $1,000 in cash. For more info, please visit here.
