ORIGINAL POST: Battlefield 1 open beta was finally made available to everyone yesterday as planned. Fans seemed quite excited while downloading the open beta as they finally had a chance to get their hands on one of the most anti cipated game of this year. However, things didn’t go smoothly as EA servers were down after DDoS attack from PoodleCorp.

Yesterday, Battlefield 1 beta players were reporting the issue of being unable to play the open beta. After some time, a group of hackers known as PoodleCorp on the Twitter claimed the responsibility for the downtime of EA servers in a tweet. Below are the tweets;

Sometime later, EA also confirmed the downtime of EA servers and Battlefield 1 open beta due to the attack. EA said that the team is working to resolve the issue and get back online soon in its tweet.

Not only the Battlefield 1 beta was unable for play, but some other EA games such as Madden NFL 17 were also reportedly inaccessible by the players. Players were trying to connect to the servers, but they encountered with the message of “Matchmaking Failed” and “Failed to connect to EA Online“.

However, seems that the things are getting back on the track slowly as the group later confirmed that they have stopped attacking the servers. While many players have reported to be able to get their hands on the open beta again. The beta includes two game modes; Conquest and the Rush with one map named as the Sinai Desert.

Battlefield 1 open beta will reportedly run till September 8th, while there are chances that it might get extended for a day or two. The game will be released on October 21st for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Stay tuned for more updates!
