Download Battlefield 4′s beta client files here and get ready for October 4

Battlefield 4

By on October 1, 2013 at 5:43 pm

I’ll keep this short and sweet: you can now download the client files for the upcoming Battlefield 4 open beta from our file library. Download them right here.

Here’s how to get them working once preloading begins:

  1. Open Origin
  2. Select Battlefield 4 Beta from Origin store page
  3. Begin download
  4. Pause download after 30 seconds (it needs time to create directories)
  5. Exit Origin
  6. Download and extract contents of archive into directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 4 Beta
  7. Once files have been copied, re-open Origin.
  8. Click play and enjoy!

Downloads from the file library don’t count towards your quota, so save yourself 4.7 GB and get downloading!

Battlefield 4 is in closed beta until October 4 at 8PM AEST. Once the open beta begins, you will be able to begin preloading in the steps described above.

Haha thanks! Was just about to say in the other thread i’d start downloading tomorrow when i’m uncapped but now I don’t have to worry. XD

/edit

Of course Origin needs an update. -_-

 

Yeah solves my probs too ;)

1.2GB left of 200GB is never fun…

 

And I derped hard, forgot all about the preorder stuff. No need to update now, will do so on the 4th when I can actually play it.

 

I’m getting a 404 while trying to access the download. Am I not doing something right?
Edit: Constant retrying got it to work. Thanks :)

 

First time I have needed to download something since requiring login to download. Does anyone have the links work in a download manager?

 

Do I get access to beta because I have BF3 premium?

Its listed in my origin games list as downloadable.

 

holybumble,

nah, the file is dead, i think they removed it because it was taking too much bandwidth or something

 

cant edit my message: file is up again

That or EA made them take it down.
Also if you were to follow the process creating the folder via the install is probably easier if done manually in Origins install directory.

ISP’s wouldn’t have to offer this cool alternative if origin would only match steam features like local AU content servers .

Thumbs up games.on.net
Thumbs down origin and EA

Couldn’t get it working. Tried a couple of different ways but origin is not recognizing the files are there. They can forget my purchase, I wasn’t really keen anyway after BF3′s pathetic attempt at a working game, but now I’ve completely lost interest.

From all reports this is a COD clone anyway. Just learned you can throw back grenades that land at your feel. First the crossbow then this lol.

They practically founded the modern military shooter and now they are selling out with this BS. Pathetic.

So adding realism made the game pathetic?

 

If you’re having trouble with Origin not finding the files, ensure you’re putting them where it’s creating that folder in the game directory, it won’t be in program files if you’ve customized it.

 

Just voicing my frustration at having to log in just to download a file. Once upon a time, you could just download it without walled garden issues. Doesn’t seem to matter if I’m an internode customer, you guys are content to waste my time with such shitty design.

 

aninvisable,

You’re no doubt free to download things from other sources if that’s such trouble.

 

No shit, you passive aggressive creep.

 

aninvisable,

That’s hardly passive aggressive.

And if you think it is, that’s fine, is being openly hostile for no reason any better?

 

I love you GoN.

 

Thanks so much for the file :)

lemonater47,

No, I was referring to them selling out by blatantly copying features that have been used by their opposition for some time now i.e. crossbows and chucking back grenades. Realism had nothing to do with my statement. I would hardly call it realism, taking a crossbow into a gun fight….in a video game anyway.

I do question some people’s ability to read in this forum.

makena,

No customised locations. I double checked to make sure I had extracted the files to the same directories as origin had created and still didn’t recognise the data was there. POS origin.

I wasn’t going to bother with BF4 period, but when GON put the files up I thought it’s no skin off my neck (unmetered) to try out the beta. Couple origins failures with my friends “meh” first impressions, I’m not going to bother with it at all. It’s what I expected.

I’d be interested to know what you guys think of it though?
