Battlefield 1 PS4 PlayStation 4 Beta 1

You won't need a PlayStation Plus subscription to give Battlefield 1 a spin this week. The free beta's set to deploy on 31st August for everyone, with Battlefield Insider members unlocking early access as we type. And with the server stress test imminent, EA has tweeted out that you won't need an active subscription in order to enjoy the pre-release sampler.

It's hardly a big surprise as Titanfall 2 adopted the same policy, but it should please those of you without an active membership. Keep your eyes on the site throughout the week as we'll have plenty of Battlefield 1 coverage once the beta goes live.
