The closed alpha for Battlefield 5 has kicked off, and we’re diving helmet-first into the multiplayer. The alpha is only available on PC, and it’s limited to a small group of players. It includes two multiplayer offerings. Conquest is a traditional control point mode, while Grand Operation is a narrative meta-mode that spans various maps and game types.

This particular Grand Operation will be “Fall of Norway,” set on the Arctic Fjord map. It encompasses two different game modes, Airborne and Breakthrough. The alpha will also include one Special Assignment and several daily orders. Completing your Special Assignment tasks will net you a special dog tag for your profile in the full game.

To participate, you’ll need to get into the alpha and then download the client through Origin, and naturally, your specs will need to be up to snuff. If you didn’t get in this time around, just relax and watch some multiplayer gameplay above. We’ll be putting each of the modes through their paces. Battlefield V is set to launch on October 19 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Purchasing the Deluxe edition will get you access on October 16.
