Battlefield gamers looking forward to the launch of the new Battlefield 4 Beta demo launching as a Battlefield 4 Exclusive Beta on October 1st 2013, followed shortly after by the Battlefield 4 Open Beta on October 4th 2013.
Might be interested in the details revealed by DICE offer the weekend by a blog post by Karl Magnus Troedsson, General Manager of DICE on the Battlefield 4 Beta blog.
In the Battlefield 4 Beta post Troedsson explains:
“During the Beta we will try out both FairFight and PunkBuster to make the experience as good as possible for our players,” Troedsson said. “You will notice information about the two anti-cheat measures on the server browser pages on Battlelog, and you will also potentially see messaging in the chat box in-game when a cheater is caught. We will get back to you later with more detail on how we are improving our anti-cheat measures in Battlefield 4.”
“During the beta, we are aiming to be live 24/7,”-”However, we will regularly restart servers on short notice or take down the beta for periods of time if needed for technical reasons. This is because we are still optimizing net code, updating the dedicated server code, updating the server infrastructure, and doing database work.”
“The data that we will receive during the beta period will be of great value to us when configuring the game for launch,”-”Simply by joining the beta, you are helping us tweak very important details in the multiplayer components for our biggest and most ambitious game yet.”
