Battlefield 2042

Fans are longingly waiting for an appointment for the beta of Battlefield 2042. Development studio DICE has been quite silent since the big announcement of the new first-person shooter a few weeks ago, only announced that the test phase will run in September. A new picture published on Twitter underscores the previously cautious information about the beta date. However, there are already some rumors about the release date.

Just this morning we reported that the beta could start on September 6th, according to the Battlefield 2042 product page at Italian retailer Media World. However, streamers announced the early access start for pre-orderers for September 4th - the day after tomorrow. The German streamer Pietsmiet announced in his program plan that he would like to host a beta stream on Saturday.

In addition, buyers of the disc version reported that they had already received the download key required for the early access phase , which also indicates an imminent beta activation. However: So far there is no trace of a confirmation of the imminent beta start on the part of DICE. The insider Tom Hendersen, known for his BF leaks, recently expected that the developers would call the date by September 2nd.

Battlefield 2042: New leak shows weapon gameplay from the alpha test

A few days before the possible start of the Battlefield 2042 beta, new gameplay leaks from the new first-person shooter are circulating through the internet. var lstExcludedArticleTicker = '1378895,1378845,1377737,1378717'; However, he now claims to have learned from a source that he has trusted for several years that there have been "internal delays". That would also explain the currently missing announcements about the first person shooter. The source does not give specific details, but assumes that the delays will not affect the release schedule of Battlefield 2042 (buy now € 56.99 / € 53.99). The new first person shooter is due to hit the market on October 22nd.

Battlefield 2042 beta may be mere days away, if this listing is legit

It looks like the beta for Battlefield 2042 could open in under a week’s time, if the pre-order listing on an Italian website is anything to go by.

As spotted on Reddit, Italian retailer Mediaworld has claimed that the early access beta would be going live on Monday, September 6, before the listing was deleted. You can still see it here thanks to the magic of the Way Back Machine.

If you don’t speak Italian, this is what Google Translate makes of the text in question: “buy by 03.09.2021 in presale this product you will receive access to the early beta of the video game from 06.09 to 11.09.” 

Clunky, yes — and slightly confusing given Europeans use the DD/MM/YY approach to dates — but the meaning is hard to dispute: pre-order by tomorrow and you’ll get access to the beta from next Monday to Saturday.

Given the pre-order cut-off date is so close, it’s slightly odd that the listing has been removed. You would have thought that EA would want to shout about this pre-order incentive from the rooftops, but apparently not. 

Though the company has previously revealed that pre-ordering any version of the game will allow beta access, it refused to confirm or deny the exact dates in question.  When asked, the company would only reconfirm that “our open beta release window is September,” according to Videogame Chronicles.

Although beta access comes with every pre-order, there are specific perks that EA is reserving for the more expensive packages. Those paying $90 to $120 for the PC or console ‘Gold’ and ‘Ultimate’ editions of the game will get early access to the game starting on October 15; a week before the title becomes available to everyone on September 22.

Those extra seven days could be crucial practice, given Battlefield 2042 is an exclusively multiplayer experience, with the only single-player option being battles against bots. A lot of bots, too, given the game now supports matches of up to 128 players — although only if you’re playing on PC, Xbox Series X/S or PS5 unfortunately, with last-generation players having to make do with ‘just’ the 64.
