While the Battlefield V alpha has already happened there is a lot of buzz right now that the beta is close…..like a few days away close! I know this sounds crazy as EA like to hype these things up at least a few weeks in advance, but this rumor is picking up steam thanks to something that was posted on Origin.
There was a tile on Origin that listed two dates. August 13th was the preload date and August 14th was the release date. This is very weird as first of all a beta never has a preload date… I literally cannot think of one beta that has had a preload date. But also the fact that it is just a few days away and so close to the Black Ops IIII beta makes it very strange.
The Battlefield V Twitter account has been posting some fun and cryptic tweets that make it sound like the beta is very close. As Battlefield V is released this October the beta will be happening sooner than later, but I would have thought that EA and DICE would have made a much bigger deal about it.
Of course, these two dates have now been removed and it now says that it is no longer available on Origin. Perhaps this was a mistake? Perhaps it means they are just going to surprise drop the beta on us? Or perhaps this is the date for another alpha to do a little more testing before the bigger beta test?
Hopefully, EA or DICE will come out and say soon when the Battlefield V beta is happening as this tease or mistake has made many fans want it even more.
