DDoS Attacks Tarnish Start of Battlefield 1 Open Beta

/ Aug 31st, 2016 No Comments

Battlefield 1

If you are experiencing issues trying to play the Battlefield 1 open beta, you are not alone.

EA online servers were the subject of a DDoS attack the day that the Battlefield 1 open beta was scheduled to begin. EA acknowledged having server issues in a tweet.

In addition to the Battlefield 1 beta, server issues are currently affecting Madden NFL 17 and other EA titles. Problems began with a brief outage overnight before a major outage through the day.

Hacker group PoodleCorp has claimed that it caused the server issues with a DDoS attack. The group has not stated a reason why it targeted EA servers at this time. PoodleCorp previously orchestrated DDoS attacks against the PlayStation Network, Pokemon Go, and Grand Theft Auto Online.

EA has not confirmed a reason why the servers are down.

It is not known exactly when the Battlefield 1 open beta is set to end, but EA could decide to extend the demo period due to the DDoS attacks. The beta for the World War 1-inspired first-person shooter features two multiplayer modes and one map.
