Electronic Arts and DICE have revealed Battlefield V Open Beta dates, and released a brand new trailer detailing all the features coming together with the latest Nvidia RTX graphics cards.
The open beta for Battlefield V will begin on September 6 for all players across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Origin, with early access beginning on September 4. You can have early access pre-ordering the game, or subscribing to Origin Access Premier, Origin Access or EA Access depending on the platform.
“The Open Beta will showcase the soon-to-be-iconic Rotterdam map on Conquest mode as well as the Arctic Fjord map on both Conquest and Grand Operations. Revealed just last week, the Rotterdam map will immerse players in a battle fought throughout the streets of Holland where the game’s dynamic physicality and destruction will be on full display,” DICE says about the beta.
“New to the Battlefield franchise, Grand Operations is a multiplayer experience across multiple maps and modes that takes players through a powerful narrative journey inspired by historical events.”
Discussing Nvidia RTX support, Nvidia added that the latest technology will have an impact on the way the game elaborates lighting.
“Previously used to pre-render lifelike worlds in movies, ray tracing with the Nvidia RTX platform brings real-time, cinematic-quality rendering to video games. In Battlefield V, Nvidia RTX allows DICE to imitate the way light is reflected in the real world enhancing the fidelity of reflective surfaces in every level, map and locale in the game.
This will ensure Battlefield V feels more lifelike and dynamic, leading to a more immersive experience that makes players feel like the battle is unfolding in a full 360-degrees around them. The use of real-time ray tracing in Battlefield V is made possible by Nvidia’s new GeForce RTX 20 series GPUs.”
Battlefield V releases October 19, 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
