How to Watch the Battlefield 1 Live Stream

EA DICE will show off new Battlefield 1 content during Gamescom and you can watch all of the action as it unfolds live. Here’s how to tune into today’s Gamescom Battlefield 1 live stream from virtually any device.

After a huge debut in early May, EA DICE is once again getting ready to showcase the next Battlefield game.


Battlefield 1 will be taking gamers to the battlefields of World War I and it will feature a single player campaign and all-out 64-player multiplayer.

Those of you looking to get all of the important information about Battlefield 1 will want to tune in today as the developer confirms new Battlefield 1 details.

We want to show you the best way to catch it all of the action as it happens.



The official Battlefield 1 Gamescom live stream starts today, August 16th, at 3PM Eastern, 12PM Pacific. The multiplayer will start 45 minutes later and it will feature a number of well-known YouTube personalities.

You can watch the Gamescom Battlefield 1 multiplayer live stream on your computer, phone or console, or right here.

We’ve embedded the Twitch version of the Battlefield 1 right here. It’s not clear if the Battlefield 1 channel will offer a stream.


If you’d rather catch the new Battlefield 1 details directly via EA’s website, you can do that right here. The company will be showcasing a number of different titles (Madden 17, FIFA 17, Star Wars, and more) over the course of the show.

We expect the Battlefield 1 event to be archived so that you can watch them over and over again ahead of the game’s release dates across the month of October.


The live stream will feature the map that EA DICE will include in the upcoming open Battlefield 1 beta for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

The Sinai Desert map and Battlefield 1 will feature two classic game modes, Rush and Conquest, when it kicks off for all three platforms on August 31st.


Those who signup to become a Battlefield Insider will gain access to the open beta day before everyone else.

Battlefield 1 Release Date

Battlefield 1 will arrive on October 18th. For some of you.

This early release date is for those who pre-order the early access version of Battlefield 1. The Early Enlister version of Battlefield 1 will run you $80. There's a way to play it earlier than that though.

EA Access & Origin Access users always get games a few days before everyone else. In the case of Battlefield Hardline, EA Access users got the game on March 12th while everyone else had to wait until March 17th. 

EA Access and Origin subscribers will get Battlefield 1 on October 13th thanks to Play First Trials. This is the earliest street date for the game so if you want to play the final product as soon as possible, this is the route to go.

EA Access is $5 a month. It's worth a look if you want to start playing the next Battlefield game as soon as possible.

If you don't buy the Early Enlister Edition or latch onto EA Access, your Battlefield 1 release date will arrive a few days later on October 21st. 

If you plan to order a physical copy of Battlefield 1 note that some retailers will be hosting midnight launch events. Only select stores will be open late so you'll want to check with your local retailer to make sure doors will be open.
