According to the Battlefield account, those who signed up for EA’s Insider program and set their platform preference by August 21 will be granted access to the beta on August 30. Early access codes will be emailed to Insiders soon, while those without a code will be granted access to the beta on August 31. How long the beta is expected to last, however, is currently unknown.

The Battlefield 1 beta will take place across the Sinai Desert map; located in the blistering heat of Eastern El-Jifar. Two modes will also be included: Conquest, a large-scale skirmish of up to 64 players in which soldiers fight for control of main objectives, as well as Rush, featuring a smaller count of 24, where attackers must use explosives to destroy the telegraph posts of the defending force.
Battlefield 1 releases on October 21 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
