Electronic Arts and DICE have great success in hand, as today they revealed that between August 30 and September 8, no less than 13.2 million of people enjoyed the beta of Battlefield 1 and they also smash the previous record held by Electronic Arts with Star Wars: Battlefront beta played by 9.5 million followed by far behind 6.4 million players of the Division beta and 4.6 million players of Destiny beta.
Battlefield 1 beta was played by 13.2 million players
The game’s developer, DICE, said the Assault class was chosen by 30 percent of the players, followed by the Sharpshooter (21%), support (21%), medic (10%) and 11% remaining focused on using tanks, planes, other motor vehicles and the horse riding. The Battlefield 1 will be released in October and in the same month Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta will be released so we can compare numbers.
On the game’s official website, EA and DICE have detailed the Giant’s Shadow map, a new map that will be coming to the game as part of a free update sometime during December.
FREE IN DECEMBER: GIANT’S SHADOW
Prepare to take part in the Battle of the Selle in the cold autumn of 1918. Here, the fighting moves out of the trenches and into open country where a massive crashed airship casts its shadow onto the battlefield. The British forces have broken through the Hindenburg line and are now in pursuit towards an important railway center. Fierce infantry and tank engagements ensue on the open ground and river banks alongside the Cateu-Wassigny railway where an armored train can still turn the tide. Giant’s Shadow will be coming to Battlefield 1 as part of a free update in December.
Earlier today, EA revealed some of the Battlefield 1 open beta stats with a new infographic. According to the image, the game’s open beta, which ended last week, has been played by a total of 13.2 million players, an impressive number that’s double the strength of the British and Ottoman Empires deployed in the Middle East during World War I.
