Battlefield 5’s open beta starts tomorrow and preloading is available now

Keep it on the down-low, but I hear that there’s a new Battlefield game coming soon. Even more shocking, this ‘Battlefield 5‘ will be running a free open beta, starting tomorrow. No, really – I heard it on the grapevine. Better yet, you can start preloading it now if your connection threatens to buckle under a 12.5 gigabyte download on the day. Don’t say we never get the scoops.

In all seriousness, I’m looking forward to this one. As grim as its subject matter may be (especially Battlefield 1), the series has always been a bright and breezy multiplayer shooter, mechanically, and this one looks to add some fun bits to the mix. Below, a video giving us a peek at some of the stuff coming in the beta and final game, including the 64-player battle royale mode, Firestorm.
