Battlefield 2142 demo plans
Open beta to begin in August.
This summer will see the launch of the open beta for Battlefield 2142, the latest instalment in the hit PC shooter series.
That's according to a DICE representative contacted by community site bf2142.com, who said: "We are going to throw out an open beta in the beginning of August. The beta is predominantly to learn about large scale issues, i.e. when we have [tens of thousands] of people playing at the same time, eliminating some of the problems we have encountered after launch previously in the franchise. Keep your eyes open to join."
A playable demo is promised, too: "The demo for BF2 went out about 10 days before launch if I remember correctly. I am sure something similar will be the deal for 2142," the representative said.
Battlefield 2142 is out in the autumn - you can find out more by reading our preview, if you haven't already.
