Battlefield 4 Beta to Focus on 64-Bit OS

If you are planning on participating in the upcoming Battlefield 4 Beta on PC, be advised that it will run on 64-bit OS only.

While the full version of the game will run on both 32-bit Windows OS and 64-bit, the game studio is focusing its efforts on testing the 64-bit version of the game.

To determine if your PC is running a 32-bit or 64-bit OS, open Control Panel on your computer and look in the System section.

If you’d like to be part of the Exclusive Beta starting Oct. 1, get the Digital Deluxe Edition now and be among the first to fight!

You can pre-load the Beta at the times listed below. Get ready to play the moment the Beta launches!

Help Make the Game Better
If you have feedback on the Beta, submit it in the Battlefield 4 Beta forums on Battlelog.

What to Expect from the Beta
The Beta is scheduled to be live 24/7, but there may be restarts of the game servers on short notice. It’s also possible the Beta will be taken down for a little while (if needed) for technical reasons. This is because the game studio will be optimizing in real-time while the Beta is running. You can always check the notice bar on Battlelog for up to date information on server status for all platforms. Also, the Beta will influence the final product, so Battlefield 4 will be even better than the Beta experience.
