  • Battlefield V Open Beta Begins September 4; New Ray Tracing Features Announced

    The open beta for Battlefield V begins on September 4 for those that pre-order the game and on September 6 for everyone else. This open beta will be available to everyone on the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

    This beta will include the Rotterdam map on Conquest mode and the Arctic Fjord map on Conquest and Grand Operations. DICE and EA showed off some Rotterdam gameplay a few days ago. This is the same footage that they're showing off this week at Gamescom 2018.

    In addition to this beta news, it was revealed today that Battlefield V will make use of Nvidia's RTX tech for real-time ray tracing.

    Previously used to pre-render lifelike worlds in movies, ray tracing with the NVIDIA RTX platform brings real-time, cinematic-quality rendering to video games. In Battlefield V, NVIDIA RTX allows DICE to imitate the way light is reflected in the real world enhancing the fidelity of reflective surfaces in every level, map and locale in the game. This will ensure Battlefield V feels more lifelike and dynamic, leading to a more immersive experience that makes players feel like the battle is unfolding in a full 360-degrees around them. The use of real-time ray tracing in Battlefield V is made possible by NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 20 series GPUs.

    You can see what that looks like right here in this new RTX trailer for Battlefield V.


    On top of that, Battlefield V will incorporate Nvidia Ansel technology which will allow players to compose and capture some high resolution images of their gameplay. And then on top of even that, Battlefield V will incorporate the ability to automatically capture gameplay highlights.

    Building upon this partnership with NVIDIA, both NVIDIA Ansel and Highlights will be also be integrated into Battlefield V for GeForce PC gamers. NVIDIA Highlights automatically captures a gamer's greatest gaming achievements in video. Integrated directly with the game, it knows precisely when that magic moment will happen and automatically records it using NVIDIA ShadowPlay technology, making it easier to capture those Only in Battlefield moments.

      Technically, right now there are no PC's that can run it (unless you're Nvidia or possibly some tech reviewers).
