One of the first things this program is supposed to do is alter the netcode which will improve synchronization between client and server. The CTE will also take a look at tickrate, which is how frequently your game client is updated by the server you are playing.

A program like this will hopefully catch bugs faster so DICE can make patches to fix them. Battlefield 4 still has two more expansions slated to come out in the summer of 2014. Let’s see if having the CTE will make a noticeable mark on future gameplay.

So far the Community Test Environment will be available for PC users who are Battlefield 4 Premium members.

Requirements for the Community Test Environment:

  • Visit

  • Read and accept the Terms of Service and Agreement
