Battlefield 1 PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Has the latest Battlefield 1 trailer left you hyped? Then maybe you'll be excited to learn that the game's open beta will go live from 31st August on the PlayStation 4. That's right, in just over two weeks' time, you'll be able to take the title for a spin on Sony's new-gen system – and EA's not even making you pre-order to get access.

Okay, so you will want an Insider Account if you intend to get early entry into the online stress test, and you can sign up for one of those through here. But if you're cool with waiting a few extra days, then you'll just need to check the PlayStation Store when the client goes live. We'll, of course, let you know when it's available.

The beta will include the Sinai Desert map from the new trailer, and will boast two classic modes: Conquest and Rush. If you didn't check out today's video, then you can find that through here. Before you leave us, though, let us know whether you're hungry to take to the trenches in the comments section below.
