UPDATE 21ST of October: Having issues with Battlefield 1 on launch day today, then check out this for details HERE
The servers for EA games are currently down and this is effecting the hugely anticipated Battlefield 1 open beta. There hasn’t been a confirmed reason for the outage just yet but EA are aware and will keep you updated on the issue. Here is the tweet which was sent out.
EA is currently experiencing an outage. EA games, services & support may be impacted. We’re working to resolve as fast as possible.

We will keep updating this story and post any fixes if needed or when they servers are live again.
UPDATE: We originally thought it was a Battlefield 1 issue but it looks like it’s an EA server wide issue as EA’s official Twitter account posted this tweet.
We are currently investigating reports of connection issues in #FIFA16

UPDATE 2: We can confirm it was a DDOS attack against the EA Severs and could mean the servers will be down for up to a few hours.
UPDATE 3: Here are the confirmed EA games with working servers.
- UFC 2
- Battlefield Hardline
Here are the games which are confirmed to be down
- Battlefield 1 Beta
- FIFA 16

And then there’s Star Wars Battlefront which has issues but is not 100% down like FIFA 16 and the BF1 beta. Let us know in the comments section below if you are having any issues?
UPDATE 4: Some users are reporting that they can now get back into online games on EA games, so it’s worth trying again.
