Battlefield 2042 Open Beta dates are here

Those who have pre-ordered the game or have an EA Play subscription will get to play the game two days early, which is October 6. For PC, consoles, and all other platforms, Battlefield 2042 open beta begins on October 8.

There’s a lot to do in the game. Players will get to play the Conquest game mode on the Orbital map. This mode was first spotted in the Battlefield 2042 reveal trailer. There will be 128 players dropping on the map (64 players on Xbox One and PlayStation 4), and players will need to fight others to get the control objectives on a massive map located in Kourou, French Guiana.

Battlefield 2042 Open Beta will allow players to control four of the game’s specialists—Boris, Casper, Falck, and Mackay, as previously revealed by EA. The pre-loads are slated to start on October 5, meaning players will have a day to download the game.

The game will have next-gen graphics with ray-tracing and will be cross-progression and cross-commerce. This will give players an impression of what to expect later on when the full game arrives.

From the looks of it, both DICE and EA are confident about the state of the game. This open beta will further allow the developers to get crucial feedback from the players on problems or issues, which will help the developers to act on those factors.
