Battlefield 1 Open Beta Suffers Server Outages

Battlefield 1’s open beta launched yesterday, greeting us all to the gritty world of World War One… well some of us, many players have sadly been left out of the action. EA’s Origin online service fell throughout last night, but it seems it was at no fault of EA themselves.

Reports indicate that the service was targeted and brought down by a DDOS attack, with a hacker group claiming responsibility for the outage. Sadly this means the feedback to EA about Battlefield 1 has been less than kind to EA, many Twitter users took to the internet to openly complain about their lack of game time on the limited beta.

At the time of writing, I am still unable to join many games on the servers, but hopefully the issues will be resolved before the Beta’s end later in the week.
