Battlefield 1 beta servers down, DICE “working to resolve”

Battlefield 1 beta servers down, DICE “working to resolve”

The PC Battlefield 1 beta opened up to all-comers today, but it’s quite likely that you’ve not been able to get on to play it yet due to server outages. This looks to be a widespread problem, because DICE have addressed the issue directly on twitter (now removed, see update below).

“BF1 Open Beta is currently experiencing server outages,” the tweet reads. “We’re working to resolve as soon as possible. Please stay tuned for more updates.” That was (at the time of writing) posted about fifteen minutes ago, so no additional updates have been given just yet.

Pressed for an estimated time, whoever is writing for the Battlefield 1 account says “As soon as possible”. Until EA and DICE can find where the problem is, potential beta players will just have to wait this out. The beta can be downloaded through Origin on PC.

Update: The original tweet referencing Battlefield 1 outages has been removed and replaced with a new one referring to outages for EA’s “games, services and support” in general.

Update 2: The servers are back online. Read Battlefield 1 servers back online following DDOS attack for more details.

        I just don’t get what will they gain from this, they think because EA is bad and by shutting their servers will make people realize how bad they are ? this actually makes me support EA even more than go against them.

          It seems counter-productive to me too.

          Effectively attacking the player base just makes them look a bunch of pricks and people end up rallying behind EA in the end.

        People already know how bad EA is, just let us play if we want to. You’re hurting us way more than EA which doesn’t give a goddamned that you’re doing this beyond trying to fix it.

          Apparently they just did it as a way to blackmail DramaAlert into interviewing them. Really stupid.

      There are probably better ways to protest against something than to stop everyone else from playing like another group did with the XB1 and PS4 networks?
