Battlefield 2042 open beta will be launching in September, EA has announced.
Yesterday during EA’s E3 2021 presentation called EA Play, a slate of new information surrounding Battlefield 2042 was unveiled. Within the showcase had the announcement that Battlefield 2042 open beta would take place in September. Although specific dates for the events weren’t revealed.
However, there are methods of getting early access to the open beta before anyone else. If you pre-order any version of Battlefield 2042 or an EA Play subscriber on PC, Xbox, or Playstation platforms, you’ll get early access. Though EA hasn’t specified how early those users will get access to beta.
Other thing that EA were unveiling was Battlefield Portal. A brand new in-game mode where users can take assets like weapons, vehicles, gadgets, and more from all across the storied Battlefield series, and mix them up together in their own player-created modes. In the reveal trailer for the mode yesterday, we saw soldiers from the Second World War heading into battle with highly advanced futuristic soldiers, for example.
While developer DICE will upload their own creative modes to the Portal for players to test out, there’ll also be a constantly rotating selection of player-created modes for the audience to try out, which will feature maps from Battlefield 3, Battlefield Bad Company 2, and Battlefield 1942.
