DICE’s upcoming beta for Battlefield 2042 has had its share of discussion recently. Its reported appearance on the PlayStation and Microsoft Stores and listing from Italian retailer Media World reinforced its originally announced September 6th start. However, it seems the beta could be starting later than planned.
According to insider Tom Henderson, who has leaked plenty of details about the title before its initial announcement, it will take place on September 22nd. No further details were provided but if incorrect, he promised to give away 10 copies of the game to random individuals. Neither EA nor DICE have indicated a delay for the beta from its original date so take things with a grain of salt as usual.
As such, the beta’s pre-load begins on September 3rd at 1 AM PT so we’ll know sooner or later if it’s on track. It will be open for all players on September 6th, 1 AM PT and end on September 11th at 7 AM PT. Battlefield 2042 releases on October 22nd for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5 and PC.
The #BATTLEFIELD2042 Beta is September 22nd.
I'll give away 10 copies of #BATTLEFIELD2042 to 10 random people that Retweet this if it ends up not being true.
