Battlefield 2042 Open Beta to Take Place Early October

EA and DICE today finally revealed when players can get their hands on the Battlefield 2042 beta.

After months of silence, we now know when players can get their hands on Battlefield 2042’s beta. It’ll take place October 6-October 9 for those that pre-order the game or are current EA Play members. If you don’t pre-order or aren’t a member, the Open Beta will only be playable on October 8 and October 9.

During the beta, you’ll get to experience all-out 128 player warfare on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC (64 players on PS4 and Xbox One). The beta includes Conquest on the Orbital map, and players will get a solid selection of weaponry, vehicles, and Specialists to play with. Unfortunately, these is the only map and mode available during the beta period.
