Those gearing up for this week's Battlefield 1 open beta have one thing less to worry about if they're on a PlayStation 4.

Replying to a fan on Twitter, developer DICE confirmed that players will not require an active PlayStation Plus subscription in order to access the open beta.

The beta's terms and conditions state that an Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus subscription "may be required," making it unclear whether an Xbox Live Gold account will be necessary for players on that platform.

Beginning this Wednesday (August 31st) on PC, Xbox One, and PS4, the beta will give players access to the Sinai Desert map with Conquest and Rush game modes.

A PlayStation Plus subscription will be required for multiplayer upon the game's full, official release.

Battlefield 1 will release on new-gen consoles and PC on October 21st, and is available for pre-order at Mighty Ape.
