The open beta for DICE’s WW1 shooter Battlefield 1has become the biggest in publisher EA’s history,attracting 13.2 million players in just over a week.

It breaks the previous record set by the Star Wars Battlefront beta — another DICE concoction — whichpulled in 9 million players last October.

Battlefield 1 didn’t just beat internal records, but also those set by the likes of Overwatch, which has the honor of being the largest beta in Blizzard’s historywith 9.7 million players.
