How do you say the word ‘beta?’ Do you say it ‘bee-tah’ or ‘bay-tah?
Regardless of your pronunciation, DICE has revealed final details for the studio’s upcoming online beta test for Battlefield 4 after revealing initial information on the taster last week.
The beta will commence on October 1st for Battlefield 4 Premium members, but will open up to everyone else on October 4th. The test will run until October 15th and include a single map, the Siege of Shanghai (the one with the crumbling skyscraper), and DICE hopes to fold feedback from the beta back into the final shipping game.
Watch a quick-fire interview with executive producer Patrick Bach who chats about how feedback from the beta will be used to improve the Battlefield 4 experience both on current- and next-gen consoles:
