The newest Battlefield game is arriving soon, but the good folks over at DICE have given the public the opportunity to test their game. Here we will detail the start times, end dates, and where you can play it as provided by EA and DICE.
Battlefield 2042 is available for preload right now, starting on October 5th, the public at large will be able to freely play starting on October 8th and ending the next day on October 9th. But you can play an additional TWO DAYS if you are an EA Play member, this will grant you access to Battlefield 2042’s early access beta which is available now through October 7th. If you are a Game Pass Ultimate member, EA Play comes packaged in with that deal, so you can download the early access beta as well.
So, we tackled when you can play it, now where can you play? The answer is pretty simple: everywhere. Beta access is available to download on all platforms, including previous/current-gen consoles like the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Similar on PC, you can download it on Steam, Origin, and the Epic Game Store. To download it, simply go to your systems respective store front, and search for Battlefield 2042, then simply download it. This also goes for EA Play and Game Pass Ultimate members, as the beta won’t show in your systems ‘ready to download’ area. Once you download it, wait until the public beta on the 8th or if you are an EA Play member simply play to your hearts content.
The beta will feature their new map Orbital with the classic Conquest mode available, players will be able to play as four unique specialists during the beta’s run-time.
