Watch: 90 minutes of Battlefield 1 beta gameplay, live at 3:30pm

I love horses, best of all the animals.

Battlefield 1 is back and this time it's brought horses!

Yup, the Battlefield 1 beta is now open to all, and because I played the closed alpha on PS4, I thought I'd mix things up a bit and play 90 minutes of the Xbox One build for today's stream.

The open beta includes a brand new map, Sinai Desert, and features a gigantic armoured train along with some view-obscuring sandstorms and lots of lovely horses to ride.

The stream will be kicking off at 3:30pm today and you can watch me get shot in the face over and over again, in the video below.

If you have the beta downloaded onto your Xbox One and fancy fighting alongside (or against) me, keep an eye on the stream as I'll be announcing what servers I'll be joining. Search for the server number in the server browser, and it should be neigh problem to join the match in progress.
