Servers for Battlefield 1's open beta and other EA games are back online

All games and services have been restored.


Followed yesterday's outage, EA sent out a tweet announcing that all games and services are back up and running.

"EA games, services, and support are all available. Thank you for playing with us," the tweet read.

Although the publisher did not disclose a cause for the outage, a hacking group called Poodle Corp claimed responsibility.

The outage came on the first day of Battlefield 1's open beta, giving players on all three platforms (Xbox One, PC, and PS4) a chance to sample the game's WWI-based action before its official release on October 21.
