The mobile version of the popular first-person shooter game Battlefield, developed by Swedish company EA DICE and is published by American company Electronic Arts, is going to make a debut sooner than we expected. EA announced that Battlefield Mobile is starting to test the game with a series of smaller play tests in Indonesia and the Philippines. The first of these begins in autumn of this year, and will only be available on Android devices. This beta is specifically available for phones running Android 7.0.
About Battlefield Mobile
Battlefield Mobile will be a free-to-play online game and only includes cosmetic items. It will feature a battle pass and collectible cosmetics. It won’t feature cross-play with any console or PC versions of Battlefield.
How to pre-register for Battlefield Mobile
To pre-register for the game, go to the game page by clicking here. You’ll see the pre-registration button if you are from Indonesia and the Philippines. Just click on it and you’re done.
Testing slots are limited, so those who pre-register aren’t guaranteed access to play testing. But EA confirmed that players will be notified of later releases. This is going to be an “invitation only” test and no side-loading of APK will work. It is also worth knowing that all the data will be wiped out after the test is over.
Battlefield Mobile: What should fans expect
The game is being developed by Industrial Toys, led by Alex Seropian, one of the original co-founders of Bungie, creators of the Halo franchise. Battlefield Mobile, so far we can hope, will rise as a tough competitor to the existing battle royale games.
The market is extremely competitive now as there are already titles like PUBG Mobile and Call Of Duty Mobile. Also, another competitor is going to join the party soon as PUBG New State has shown some intense in-game techs with futuristic battle weapons and vehicles, and has recently opened pre-registration in India. But, as the Battlefield series has a loyal fan base, the publishers can aspire to grab a large portion of the gaming market.
