When we first launched the Battlefield 1 Community Test Environment, we were excited to share our development processes and testing with you, our passionate community.
Over the past 2 years, you’ve shared feedback, provided your suggestions, and played new proposed game content with us – helping our dev team determine issues to be resolved, generate new concepts and ideas that may or may not have made it to release.
Recently, we had announced a hiatus for Battlefield 1 Community Test Environment. As we move forward, we will be re-activating the Battlefield 1 CTE for PC only. In fact, starting on March 13th all PC players will be able to update their Community Test Environment to test out this month’s round of fixes, tweaks, and improvements. Going forward, CTE will only be available on PC, with the Battlefield 1 CTE for PS4 and Xbox One coming to a graceful end.
Any content that will be deployed on the BF1 CTE PC client will be for developmental feedback purposes and is not guaranteed to be released.
Though content feedback will be based on PC, any changes that resulted from these learnings will be applied to all platforms including PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
You might be asking yourselves, “why is EA/DICE shutting down the console CTE clients?” We are always striving for parity across platforms, but need to focus our CTE efforts on PC at the moment, but we do have some exciting news coming soon for both PC and Console players.
As always, for the CTE to work, we need you, the #BestCommunityintheWorld, to join, kick the tires, give the content a test drive, and, as Jaqub “gunhero” Ajmal would say, “Do those surveys!” We’re always listening to feedback, so make sure to jump into the Battlefield Forums, the Battlefield_Live reddit, and the Discord/Slack channels to share your feedback.
As always, thanks for being part of the community and we’ll see you on the battlefield!
Battlefield 1 CTE PC access requires Battlefield 1 (PC) and Battlefield 1 Premium Pass (PC).
