Originally scheduled for a February release, the game was first pushed back until May 24, before arriving at this new June date.
A closed beta is launching today for Catalyst, which aims to test its new online “social play” features. Including time trials and leaderboards, EA DICE has said they have developed “brand new online technology” to support this new addition (via. Polygon). The developer released a new dev diary detailing what social play entails. You can watch the video below.
“We also want to make sure we have the opportunity and time to address player feedback from the Closed Beta.” stated design director, Eric Odeldahl on the game’s official website, “We’re confident that these extra two weeks will make sure the game is as amazing as possible for you the players.”
