The PC Battlefield 1 beta opened up to all-comers today, but it’s quite likely that you’ve not been able to get on to play it yet due to server outages. This looks to be a widespread problem, because DICE have addressed the issue directly on twitter.
“BF1 Open Beta is currently experiencing server outages,” the tweet reads. “We’re working to resolve as soon as possible. Please stay tuned for more updates.” That was (at the time of writing) posted about fifteen minutes ago, so no additional updates have been given just yet.
Pressed for an estimated time, whoever is writing for the Battlefield 1 account says “As soon as possible”. Until EA and DICE can find where the problem is, potential beta players will just have to wait this out. The beta can be downloaded through Origin on PC.
