Those with EA Play get early access to the upcoming Battlefield 2042 beta, including those who have access to the service through Game Pass Ultimate.
The excitement for Battlefield 2042 took a bit of a blow when the game was delayed into November, but fans are still looking forward to the coming open beta period, which Game Pass Ultimate and EA Play users will get to try out in early access. There are a couple of different ways to get into the beta early, but Game Pass Ultimate subscribers won’t have to take any extra steps.
The freely available period to try out Battlefield 2042‘s beta only lasts two days. From October 6-7, only those who pre-order any version of Battlefield 2042 or are EA Play subscribers can participate in the beta as part of its early access period. This includes Game Pass Ultimate subscribers, since EA Play is part of Xbox’s premium subscription tier. Those without a pre-order or access to EA Play will have to wait until the beta enters its truly open period on October 8.
