If you have circled September 24th on your calendar as the date for the open beta of Battlefield 4 to start, move it up a week. Downloads of the open beta will begin on October 1st for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. We know the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are coming in November, but first we've got three of our next-gen launch window titles that hit stores well before that for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
As the NFL season goes into full swing, Madden NFL 25 is as well — the game hit stores at the end of August, and it's going strong in the 25th year of this great franchise. Fans are loving the FIFA 14 demo on Xbox 360 and PS3 that launched earlier this week, and can’t wait for the launch that kicks off in North America on September 24 and worldwide on September 27. The highly-anticipated Battlefield 4 action starts with the Battlefield 4 Open Beta on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC slated for October 1, then the game lights up on October 29.
These games on PS3 and Xbox 360 are the pinnacle of this console generation. But, in the case of Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14 and Battlefield 4, they launch well before the next-generation versions hitting a month or two later. I’m happy to confirm today the street dates for these three titles on next-generation consoles: Nov. 19 (North America)/Nov. 21 (Europe) for Xbox One and Nov. 12 (North America)/Nov. 29 (Europe) for PlayStation 4.
