The Battlefield 1 open beta is available to all players on Xbox One, PS4 and PC from today- and we have tried it.

As Battlefield Insider member, I downloaded the game yesterday for my Xbox One for the trial early and can confirm it looks as gorgeous as the trailers suggested, is immersive and generally ticks all the boxes I want from a multiplayer.

The beta weighs in at around 6.1GB and is set to run for an entire week until September 8.

Xbox One players will need an Xbox Live Gold membership to play, while there are no restrictions on PS4 and PC.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
