DICE announces that Battlefield V Open Beta will start on September 6 with Origin for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Pre-access players can already board on September 4th. Open Beta includes the maps of Rotterdam and Arctic Fjord in Conquest mode. In addition, the large volume mode is also available on the Arctic Fjord chart. The recently unveiled Rotterdam Map puts players on the streets in the Netherlands, where they experience the dynamic destruction of the area up close. Big Operations, a novelty in the Battlefield series, offers a multiplayer experience with multiple maps and modes that take players on a journey of historical events. All content of the Open Beta can already be tried out this week at the gamescom in Cologne – Battlefield V is playable in Hall 6 on PC and Xbox One X.
In addition, DICE today unveiled the new NVIDIA RTX technology during a press conference with a stunning live demo of Battlefield V on PC. Battlefield V is one of the first games developed on the NVIDIA RTX platform to use real-time raytracing as a rendering technique. Raytracing has been used to preview lifelike worlds in movies and brings real-time cinema-quality rendition to video games with the NVIDIA RTX platform. In Battlefield V NVIDIA RTX makes it possible to simulate realistic light reflections and improve the quality of reflective surfaces in all levels, maps and locations in the game. As a result, Battlefield V will feel more lifelike and dynamic, creating an immersive experience in which players feel that the fight takes place 360 degrees around them. Battlefield V real-time raytracing is based on NVIDIA & # 39; s new Geforce RTX 20 GPU series.
The technology will be included in the new Battlefield V GeForce RTX trailer.
"It was always important for us as a studio to stay a step ahead in improving the graphical reality of games," explains Christian
Holmquist, technical director at DICE. "With the new NVIDIA RTX platform, more detail is possible on the battlefield than ever before, from the reflection of a muzzle flash on a car to the detailed reproduction of a collapsed façade in a puddle on the ground, making the environment more lifelike and real. . "
"We worked closely with DICE for many years and spent most of last year as part of their team that accomplished that vision," said Tony Tamasi, senior vice president of content and technology at NVIDIA. "With the help of NVIDIA RTX, DICE in Battlefield V offers a revolutionary moment in the history of computer graphics, since Raytracing has been used in movies for years and was considered a holy grail of real-time display in games."
As part of this collaboration with NVIDIA, both NVIDIA Ansel and Battlefield V highlights will be integrated with GeForce for PC gamers. NVIDIA Highlights automatically captures the greatest performance of a player on video. It is integrated directly into the game and automatically captures epic Battlefield V moments with NVIDIA ShadowPlay technology.
NVIDIA Ansel is available in war stories for one player and is a revolutionary way to make photos in the game. Users can take images of any position and then edit with filters, capture HDR images in popular formats, and share their screenshots with the rest of the world.

Those who pre-order the Battlefield V Deluxe Edition for each platform receive three days in advance from October 16 and members of Origin Access Premier on PC can play the full version on October 11.
