I'm playing. There is a little sign with the PSN id and beta jumping across the screen at all times, so screenshot sharing is hard and video basically impossible unless you want to risc getting banned.

What the hell, got in and got a code (PS4), unfortunately every time I enter in the code to redeem, despite a green tick appearing to let me know it's correct, when I click next I get the following message "The code you entered may not be correct or may no longer be valid" followed by "Please check your entry (WC-40376-0).

Anyone else facing this issue?

Will be trying with my thrustmaster tx
I don't think you will.

They don't tend to have steering wheel support, and a recent FAQ said steering wheel support was one of the many features they are looking into.
So I doubt it will be in the beta.

If anyone has a spare X1 code after getting one by mistake and can't get rid of it I'll gladly accept it :)

Just got my code, there's an NDA and the codes are tied to the account you signed up from as the link you select already has your PSN/XBL account username greyed out.

Basically you can only play on the account you signed up with.


Edit: Oh and guys, you can resize the screenshots on PS4 now so just crop your name out if you want to select a screenshot.

So there's a whitelist? Guess they don't want the headache of people leaking footage whilst playing on smurf accounts.

Got mine as well, but cannot play since my XONE is already on the way in my new flat. Dammit! And I won't have internet this week, so, no NfS and no Battlefron Beta for me :(

Looks like it, in the email, it says you HAVE to click the link in the email in order to play it, when you click the email it takes you to your EA account and transfers you to PSN where your Sign in ID is already there and greyed out.

Ah, fuck. Oh well it'll have to be off screen ones then lol. I don't know if I'd want to personally though. Thanks Lukas.

Don't choose the mustang. Thing understeers like hell and then loses all grip and oversteers in an instant.

Lot of content in the beta?, does it look as good as the PR shots?
I've only played around 20 minutes because I have shit to do in a second, so I'm not sure. Only completed the first two races.

And the visuals are pretty good, the lighting is the best thing about it. Apart from that I'm not super impressed, the IQ is blurrier than I'd have liked. To answer your question - no. But I suppose those were captured from the PC version, so it's understandable.

Thought as much, looking forward to seeing it with my eyes after work
