According to the same website, this Alpha will only be available for PC players. Players chosen for the alpha will get their code through their invitation, which must be redeemed through Origin in order to download the Alpha client.

Currently, the invites for the Battlefield V Alpha will only be available for Canada, the United States, Mexico, and most of Europe.

What Is Available in the Alpha?

Those invited to the closed alpha will be able to try out Battlefield V’s sixty-four player Conquest Mode, or Fall of Norway, one of the new Grand Operations.

Conquest Mode is the regular Battlefield multiplayer match, with two teams and multiple points to capture on one map. Grand Operations is Battlefield V’s new narrative-driven multiplayer matches, which will be segmented into different stages, or in-game ‘days’.

Fall of Norway will be set on the Arctic Fjord map, and will let players experience two of the in-game days; these being: Airborne and Breakthrough. Battlefield’s website gives a brief description of what players should expect to experience when playing this game mode.

Playing Airborne, you’ll either paradrop down to the battlefield to deal with enemy artillery, or fight to counter this attack if you’re on the other team. In the frantic fights of Breakthrough, you must capture sectors as an attacker or keep the opposition at bay through on-the-fly planning.”

There will be in-game daily challenges which give the player a list of tasks to accomplish on the battlefield. Completing these will earn the player a special Battlefield V Dog Tag to add to their profile, should they buy the full game on release.

Players are also free to share footage of their Alpha sessions, as there is no non-disclosure agreement in place.
