As already revealed, the Battlefield 1 open beta is going to feature the Sinai Desert map only.

Sinai Desert offers a diverse gameplay experience that takes advantage of all of the elements that make World War I a perfect setting for a Battlefield game. You’ll ride full speed on horseback across huge desert areas and hunt for enemies in narrow streets and alleys. You’ll have shootouts from windows and rooftops in tightly contested locations where Capture points are a little too close for comfort. You’ll wrestle over the skies with fighter planes or crush through the buildings with heavy tanks. It’s the clash of eras and technologies all wrapped into one hectic conflict, mixed together with classic Battlefield gameplay.
The map will also offer different weather, with the occasional sandstorm that will be spicing things up considerably, influencing gameplay in a variety of ways.
The map also offers different weather than many of the others, including the occasional sandstorm that wreaks havoc on visibility and the gameplay dynamics. Strong winds blowing up sand is bad news for snipers and planes alike, though skilled pilots may be able to take advantage of the chaos. Things like these sandstorms and the variety of locations makes sure you can have just as fun with any of the infantry classes as you can with vehicles, and create a great variation of intensity throughout the map.
Battlefield 1 launches in two months on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The open beta will begin for all next week, on August 31st, with Battlefield Insiders receiving access earlier.
