A New Battlefield 4 UI is Available for Xbox One and PlayStation 4

Load up Battlefield 4 on Xbox One or PlayStation 4 and you’ll notice that things look a little bit… different. A new Battlefield user interface is being introduced that will provide a more intuitive and centralized experience for Battlefield games – starting with Battlefield 4 on consoles.

Besides being a total visual overhaul, there are a number of changes to how you actually play with friends. There are some updates to Squads that should make spawning on your buddies a much smoother experience.

There are other changes as well, many of which you’ll notice as you poke around. A big one is the inclusion of a recommendation engine that suggest maps, modes, and more. And since this unified UI for Battlefield games will roll out with Battlefield 1 later this year, you’ll be able to easily swap between Battlefield games that use the UI (as long as you own them).

Let us know what you think, and stay tuned for more updates as we approach the release of Battlefield 1 on October 21!

The Battlefield 1 Open Beta Starts on August 31

1 week ago 66

Ready to go boots on the ground at the dawn of all-out war? It’s almost time – the Battlefield 1 Open Beta begins on August 31 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Origin for PC.

Battlefield Insider members get early access, and if you sign up by August 21, you can join them as some of the first people in the world to play the Battlefield 1 Open Beta. If you’ve already signed up, make sure you go to the Battlefield Insider Page and select your platform preference, otherwise you won’t get a code to play early.

 

 

The Battlefield 1 Open Beta will include the Sinai Desert map, a scorching hot battlefield located just East of El-Jifar. From infantry skirmishes in the narrow streets of the village of Bir el Mazar to dogfights above the majestic cliffs, you’ll need to make tactical use of the dunes as you engage in explosive battles. When all hope is lost, reinforcements will arrive in the shape of a powerful Behemoth: a deadly Armored Train charging through the desert sands.

Two modes will be available as well:

  • Conquest. An all-time fan favorite of Battlefield players, 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.
  • 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.

Get your Squad ready to deploy, because on August 31, you’re going to experience war on an epic scale in Battlefield 1.

New Video Showcases the Vehicles of Battlefield 1

Vehicles have always played a big part in the Battlefield franchise, and many of the tanks, attack planes, and armored cars you’ve driven and piloted in prior games got their start in World War I. We’re really excited that we get to show the genesis of that vehicular technology with Battlefield 1.

Take a look at how DICE brought a wide variety of vehicles into Battlefield 1 in this new video.

 

 

The vehicles you’ll use in Battlefield 1 were created for a new type of warfare. They were massive and powerful, shaping the future of warfare with every shell shot or bomb dropped. These new vehicles required more attention and specialization, represented in-game with the Tanker and Pilot classes you’ll play as if you deploy into a tank or plane respectively.

You’ll be able to try the vehicles for yourself when Battlefield 1 releases on October 21 (or October 18 if you pre-order the Early Enlister Deluxe Edition*). Also, don’t forget to sign up for Battlefield Insider to get early access to the Battlefield 1 Open Beta**.

*Conditions and restrictions apply. See https://www.battlefield.com/disclaimers for details.

There’s a new trailer coming soon, too, with a trainload of new information about Battlefield 1.

In case you’re wondering, yes, “trainload” is a tease.

They’ll be joined by the likes of StoneMountain64, XfactorGaming, ImAnderZel, TheRelaxingEnd, and many more, going on a destructive adventure into the desert to showcase a new map filled with points to capture, horses to ride, and things to demolish. You can head over to the livestream page for more information.

What’s going to happen? Who is going to win? Will anyone blow up a tank from horseback? You’ll have to tune in on August 16 at 12PM PT/9PM CEST to find out.
