EA has started the Battlefield Mobile open beta, allowing anyone to test the brand-new mobile FPS. Based on the brilliant PC and console Battlefield series, this portable shooter is a large-scale military experience in the palm of your hands.
This isn’t the first time the DICE-developed FPS series has come to mobile. In fact, the Bad Company sub-series released on mobile two generations ago.
Unfortunately, there are some restrictions for this new Battlefield experience. As of now, the Battlefield Mobile open beta is only available in a small number of countries. As usual, most of the major regions are left out.
At the time of writing, players from the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore are able to play the open beta. Furthermore, it’s only available on Android devices. (Take that, iPhone users, haha!)
Nevertheless, if you live in a different region, you will be able to pre-register for the FPS on the Google Play Store. Of course, there are also other ways of getting access, if you don’t mind sideloading and using VPNs. (Although, according to this video, you don’t need to use a VPN if you’re in the US.)
In this beta period, the mobile game has a large variety of modes. Alongside small-scale modes like Rush, BF Mobile has TDM, Conquest and Warpath. More modes will arrive as the game releases.
Additionally, the same class system as the console and PC games returns. You’ll be able to play as Assault, Engineer, Support and Recon as you unlock a large number of guns, gadgets and more.

Battlefield Mobile is still being optimised across a wide range of devices. However, there is still a list of minimum requirements for the game’s mobile beta.
