    DICE Announces the Battlefield 4 Open Beta Starts Today on PS3


    DICE Community Manager Vincent Vukovic announced that the Battlefield 4 Open Beta starts today on PS3 with details below, as follows:

    Help Us Make the Game Better

    These are exciting times for Battlefield fans, and everyone at DICE! Today, we're releasing the Battlefield 4 open beta on PS3, and we want you all to join.

    Simply by taking part in the beta, you'll help us test the servers, online functionality, and gameplay to make sure the PS3 launch on October 29th goes as smoothly as possible.

    In the open beta, you'll be able to play both the classic Conquest mode and Domination, which you might recognize from Battlefield 3: Close Quarters (it's basically a faster and tighter version of Conquest, with more emphasis on infantry combat). The map on offer is Siege of Shanghai - you might recognize it from E3, when we first unveiled it and where the public got their very first hands-on with Battlefield 4.

    Now, we want to bring that experience - complete with game-changing Levolution events like the big skyscraper collapsing or setting off car alarms - to all of our fans on PS3. It's you, the player, triggering these moments.

    We're also looking to our fans to provide valuable feedback on the overall gaming experience. This is in every sense a true beta, so your feedback will be used to fix, tweak, and adjust the game both for launch and during the extensive support that we'll give Battlefield 4 once it's live.

    How to Download

    Today, all players on PS3 will be able to find and download the Battlefield 4 open beta by going to PlayStation Store and searching for "Battlefield 4." You'll find the open beta as a downloadable item on the Battlefield 4 title page. The beta will open when PlayStation Store updates later today.

    Don't Start Empty-Handed on Next-Gen

    Start playing Battlefield 4 on PS3, and bring everything you've unlocked to PS4. If you're interested in making the jump to next-gen hardware, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to bring your multiplayer progression from Battlefield 4.

    Since Battlefield 4 will launch on October 29th for PS3 and November 12th for PS4, we've put a number of features in place that will help you make the jump without losing any of your progress.

    Simply put: if you start playing Battlefield 4 on PS3, and later decide to move up to PS4, you can bring your multiplayer stats and all of your unlocks as you make the transfer to the next-gen Battlefield! Also, if you've become a Battlefield 4 Premium member, your Premium membership will transfer across from PS3 to PS4.

    Upgrade to Next-Gen for $9.99

    Finally, we appreciate that a lot of fans will want to start playing on PS3 and then buy Battlefield 4 on PS4 as well. For all of our fans who are ready to do this, PlayStation has put a program in place where you can buy Battlefield 4 on PS3 (on disc or a digital copy), and then later buy Battlefield 4 on PS4 for only $9.99. You can learn more about this program right here.

    Welcome to the Beta

    That's it for now. We're excited to let everyone in on the open beta, and we're eager to hear your feedback. If you have any questions or comments on the beta, or the transfer options from PS3 to PS4, let us know in the comments and we'll do our best to answer.

    Learn more about the beta over http://www.battlefield.com/battlefield-4/faq/beta. See you on the Battlefield!

    Only a month and 7 days left for PS4 release, so you might as well just save your money and get the PS4 version to begin with.
