Battlefield 2042, the PS5 test has been suspended

Battlefield 2042

The technical test of Battlefield 2042, scheduled for these days, has been canceled on PlayStation 5. Players who had registered to have the opportunity to be selected to participate in the first private beta of the new first person shooter from DICE will therefore not be able to participate . The reasons? A very serious technical error, but the development team did not want to reveal the details.

The announcement of the cancellation of the Battelfield 2042 test on PlayStation 5 came from Adam Freeman, Community Manager, via a Twitter post. As specified in the twitter, Freeman informed all users selected for the technical test that there was a critical problem. "We identified an error while we were sending the build for PlayStation 5, specifying that the test would not be held this weekend", the message launched on the social network. The test has therefore been postponed to a later date and to date it has not yet been revealed when it will be possible to take part.

A different situation for PC and Xbox consoles. The technical test of Battlefield 2042 on those platforms in fact proceeds without too many problems and will keep the selected players busy throughout this weekend. Obviously Freeman recalled the very strict NDA, or the non-disclosure agreement, which prevents users from recording videos, capturing screenshots and disseminating information about it. The penalty, in this case, is very severe: a permanent ban from the final game. "Breaking the rules will lead to the loss of techinical playtests, EA's future tests and potentially access to the game when it is released," Freeman's words entrusted to Twitter.

Battlefield 2042 will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PC on October 22, 2021 and at this address you can read our full preview. An open beta will also debut over the next few months, which will allow all players to participate without necessarily being selected with an invitation system.

Battlefield 2042 is available for pre-order at the guaranteed lowest price on Amazon.

As Battlefield 2042 Test Footage Leaks, DICE Says Breaking NDA Might Result in a Ban at Launch

Battlefield 2042 is undergoing a closed technical test on Xbox and PC (PS5 test cancelled for now), gameplay videos from which have leaked online in violation of the non-disclosure agreement signed by playtesters. As publisher Electronic Arts struggles to have the videos taken down, DICE has warned that those caught breaking NDA will not only be thrown out from the current test and banned from future tests, they might also lose access to Battlefield 2042 at launch.

“You’re under NDA for this playtest, so videos, screenshots, and streaming from this playtest result in strikes on your channels,” wrote EA’s Lead Community Manager, Adam Freeman. “Be a good egg. Break the rules, expect to lose access to both the technical playtest, future EA tests, and potentially access to 2042 itself when it releases. We’ve already removed plenty of people from the playtest in these past 48 hours, and they won’t be able to play this weekend.”

As far as test progress is concerned, Freeman said that DICE has received a lot of positive feedback thus far, and stressed that these tests are geared towards Battlefield 2042‘s technical systems. There will be an open beta in September that will offer “gameplay at its fullest.”

“Technical playtests aren’t exclusively focused on bugs or gameplay – it’s about the tech we use that powers the experience,” Freeman explained. “We’ve learned a huge deal, on top of what we already get from daily internal tests.”

As far as the PS5 technical test is concerned, no further information has been provided beyond the “critical issue” that was identified, leading to its cancellation this weekend.

We’ll keep our readers posted.
