EA’s confirmed a Battlefield 2042 beta and we want to guide you through everything we know about early access to EA DICE’s latest game.

Battlefield 2042 is official and the highly anticipated game hits Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC on November 19th. Fortunately, there are ways to try the game before its official street date.

You can pre-order a copy of the game to get early access to the official version of the game in November. You can also join EA’s Play service.

Another way to try the game early is via the Battlefield 2042 beta. The beta will give players a chance to test a portion of the game weeks before the global release.

The Battlefield 2042 beta will help players get familiar with game mechanics and a popular game mode. It will also help DICE’s team catch bugs before they make it into the final version of the game.

We don’t know everything about the Battlefield 2042 beta, but we do have some details to share as we push toward the beta’s release.
