DICE Detail The Battlefield V Closed Alpha, Starting Today On PC

Starting today DICE are holding a closed alpha test for Battlefield V, giving a select few invitees access to the game to play, test the servers and provide feedback to DICE about whether it’s historically accurate enough. Actually, they explain that it will be divided into two sections: gameplay and technical, ranging from small glitches on maps to the balance of abilities and so on.

Sadly for Battlefield fans, this is invite only, for PC players only and will be available in English only across Europe and North America. Codes are being sent out to Battlefield players via email. Those that do take part will receive a special dog tag to proudly wear in the final game.

Players will get to take on Conquest mode and the Grand Operation Fall of Norway. This takes place on the Arctic Fjord map with two ‘days’ of gameplay that switch from Airborne to Breakthrough game modes. For more on the modes, classes, vehicles and weaponry, head to the Battlefield page here.

Luckily, there’s no restrictions on screenshots or sharing video from this, so you’ll be able to hunt down more than a few impressions on the game online.
