Battlefield 4 Alpha Trial Starts Today, Invites Sent
Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
According to a post by one NeoGAF user the Battlefield 4 Alpha begun today. Apparently invites were sent out early today, June 17th, and the Alpha testing will begin later on today. The Alpha test will run for 2 week and is largely just an opportunity to test the mechanics of the game and for DICE to get feedback on game bugs and multiplayer issues.
The alpha trial has been organised by DICE and they have said it will run from 09:00-15:00 PDT or 18:00-00:00 CET each day. It seems likely that most Alpha testers selected are based in the USA due to the way the Alpha test is being run. The trial is reportedly very basic in terms of graphics and includes few textures, may have choppy game play, server lag and server downtime – but this is all to be expected from very early Alpha trials.
Players that join the trial are told they cannot post public information but I know we will see public information emerging over the next few days as gamers get their hands on this hotly anticipated game. The fact the email has been shared already is a good indication of this.
Were you lucky enough to get access to the Battlefield 4 Alpha?
