Battlefield 4 CTE Sunset
Hello Battlefield 4 fans,
The Battlefield 4 Community Test Environment was a fantastic tool the DICE development team used to test unreleased content in a live environment, tweak and balance features, weapons, vehicles, and more, and even create new maps for Battlefield 4.
As we have moved on from Battlefield 4 to focus on other titles there is no longer any new content to be tested on the Battlefield 4 CTE. During the transition off of Battlefield 4, we kept CTE open for any opportunities to test other proposed content. The Battlefield 4 CTE has served its purpose and there is no further development for Battlefield 4, therefore we will be ending the service on March 6th, 2017. We appreciate all the hours logged by the community, all the feedback you’ve shared, and all the experiences that we had together in the Battlefield 4 CTE.
We thank you for your participation and we’ll see you on the battlefield!

New Battlefield 1 Content Coming Up
With a ton of new content on the horizon, this is a great time to join Battlefield 1. Four themed expansion packs filled with new maps, armies, weapons, and more are coming up: Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass, Battlefield 1 In the Name of the Tsar, Battlefield 1 Turning Tides, and Battlefield 1 Apocalypse.
Welcome to Battlefield 1!
As Battlefield™ 1 is rolling out worldwide, I’m looking back on a journey that started with a daring pitch from the team here at DICE. Fast forward a few years, and it’s almost surreal to see you getting your hands on the final result, facing the dawn of all-out war with the rest of the community.
With Battlefield 1, we wanted to create a fresh new take on the franchise, keeping that classic and unmistakable flavor that is Battlefield intact. It was a gamble. We knew that.
But with such a unique game setting like the Great War, many unique gameplay options came with it. Judging from your reactions (not to mention how much fun we’ve had with the game ourselves) I dare say the gamble has paid off.
Nothing fills me more with joy than hearing your stories from the game – how you won that dog fight, found that weapon pickup, or turned that round of Conquest around at the last minute. I look forward to many more stories of that kind.
See you on the battlefield!
Unlock a Battlefield 1 Weapon Skin By Playing Battlefield 4 or Battlefield Hardline
We’ve nearly reached the end of the Road to Battlefield™ 1.

We’re even hosting a Road to Battlefield 1 Livestream next week, which you can learn about on the Battlefield Livestream page.
But the battle isn’t over in Battlefield 4™ or Battlefield™ Hardline. There’s one last mission you need to report in for – and if you complete it, you’ll get something special in Battlefield 1.
