You won't have to wait until October to get a taste of Battlefield 1, as EA is setting up an open beta this month for the Great War-themed multiplayer brouhaha.
Battlefield 1's open beta's map, Sinai Desert, will feature the fan-favorite Conquest and Rush game modes, supporting up to 64 players in a single match.
Players will take to the trenches with special features new to the Battlefield series, including three special classes - the Sentry, Flame Trooper, and Tank Hunter - ridable horses, and a drivable Armored Train.
For those who miss the beta, the completed version of Battlefield 1 hits stores October 21 on Xbox One, PS4, and PC via Origin. If getting a headstart is your thing, an Early Enlister Deluxe Edition is also available, letting players jump in early on October 18.
Oh, and to celebrate Gamescom this week, Battlefield 1 also dropped a new trailer showcasing brand new gameplay, including the Armored Train, to help get you on the hype train.
