Battlefield 5 is Getting Second Closed Alpha Next Week

Battlefield 5 is Getting Second Closed Alpha Next Week

The incoming war shooter will run a second closed alpha next week—on Tuesday, August 14. 

"We have made some changes that we think will better cater to players across all play styles and skill levels based on how fast players scored points, and how quickly they progressed through the ranks in the first Closed Alpha," explains EA. "We’ve also made improvements to matchmaking and fixed issues related to joining squads. Gameplay aspects such as map, weapon, and vehicle balance are still being tested so that we can make sure matches are fun, fair, and reward skilled players. 

"We are also assessing our new systems, like attrition and soldier movement, to find that gameplay sweet spot. On the technical side, we’re assessing Battlefield 5 in a live environment. Think server stability, backend connectivity, and matchmaking."

EA adds that while this gives the developer another chance to stress-test the game in a live setting, the closed alpha is also designed to give players "a fun hands-on experience" with Battlefield 5—ahead of next month's beta, and its October 19 launch after that.

Details on how to join next week's closed alpha can be read here, while key infor can be gleaned from the image above. Within the alpha, players can jump into either Conquest Mode or the Grand Operation Fall of Norway. More information on the latter can be read here.

Below are the PC system requirements for Battlefield V's Alpha, which for the most part are the same as Battlefield 1's PC system requirements, aside from the change from an AMD FX-6350 minimum CPU to an AMD FX-8350 and the addition of Nvidia's GTX 1050 to the game's minimum graphics requirements.
