The Battlefield 2042 open beta will begin on October 8 on all platforms, Electronic Arts announced today, or two days earlier—October 6—for EA Play members and anyone who has preordered the game.
The beta will include the Conquest game mode on the Orbital map seen in the Battlefield 2042 reveal trailer, with 128 players (64 players on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, sorry about that) fighting to control objectives on a large-scale map set in Kourou, French Guiana. Beta players will have access to four of the game’s specialists—Boris, Casper, Falck, and Mackay, all of whom you can read more about here.
Battlefield 2042 beta downloads will be enabled for all players on October 5, with the early access period unlocking at 12 am PT/3 am ET on October 6. The beta will go fully open at the same time on October 8, and will run until October 10.
