Back in June, rumours began swirling that Battlefield 2042 would enter public beta testing in September. Now, it seems we have some more specific dates, with an early access beta set to begin as early as this week, followed by a full open beta later in the month.
Typically, DICE likes to beta test upcoming Battlefield games around six weeks before launch. With the game coming on the 22nd of October, beta testing would have to begin in September. According to sources, the early access beta for pre-order customers will begin on the 4th of September, while the full open beta will begin on the 6th of September. Beta testing would come to a close on the 11th of September.
Battlefield 2042 is releasing on the 22nd of October, unless you’re an EA Play subscriber. If you are a subscriber and pre-order the game, you will get access a full week early on the 15th of October. With that in mind, beta testing needs to begin sooner rather than later.
Battlefield 2042 has been in closed alpha testing for a couple of months now, which led to a slew of gameplay leaks as testers broke NDA. DICE has yet to officially announce dates for the Battlefield 2042 beta, but pre-loading has begun on Xbox consoles, indicating an official announcement very soon.
KitGuru Says: I’m looking forward to seeing this game in action first-hand. Will any of you be participating in the Battlefield 2042 beta when it drops?
