In a move that's sure to be popular among loyal Battlefield fans, EA has announced that players who have purchased a Battlefield Premium subscription will not be getting access to the Battlefield 4 beta.
At this time, the only way to get into the Battlefield 4 beta is by pre-ordering Medal of Honor: Warfighter. DICE has already confirmed that there will be other ways to get into the Battlefield 4 beta, but no details have been released on that yet as the primary focus is on Medal of Honor: Warfighter and Battlefield 3. Players had assumed that being Battlefield Premium member would be enough to get into the Battlefield 4 beta but those players were sorely mistaken.
Time will tell if EA eventually overturns this decision, but if they do, expect it to happen post-Medal of Honor; EA will want to get in a few months worth of sales before removing that Battlefield 4 beta exclusivity. Right now, the biggest incentive for Battlefield fans to pick up Medal of Honor: Warfighter is the promise of Battlefield 4 beta access, EA won't be looking to offer more opportunities anytime soon as that would likely lead to lost Medal of Honor sales.
Either way, stay tuned to FPS General, we'll be bringing you the latest on all of these games every day!
