Battlefield 1 Open Beta became 'the biggest beta in EA's history'

EA and DICE have revealed some interesting information regarding its Battlefield 1 Open Beta, which they report turned out to be “the biggest beta in EA’s history.”

According to EA, a total of 13.2 million players participated in the Battlefield 1 Open Beta with the most popular class deployed going to the Assault class. The least popular? Medic. We guess Battlefield players don’t care about helping out their teammates as much as they care about murdering countless enemies.

Speaking of murder, Battlefield 1 Open Beta participants achieved 28.9 million melee kills, 13 million kills while riding the Armored Train, 23.8 million kills while behind the wheel of a vehicle, and 62.2 million kills while riding a horse. Unfortunately, how many digital horses were harmed as a result were not shared.

EA will be taking all of player feedback into consideration by identifying what worked well, and what didn’t. As a result, the publisher will be sharing more details soon in regards to the changes it will be making to the full version of the game, which will include tweaks to the Light Tank.

Battlefield 1 is scheduled to release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 13.
