A recent update from EA and DICE has reassured players that several features absent from the game's beta will be available at launch.
Abilities range from a wingsuit and Smart Grenades to ballistic shields, scanning foes through walls and calling in a crate for changing loadouts.
Subpar beta performance, missing features, reports of troubled development behind the scenes and more have dogged the shooter.
Hazard Zone will be playable on all seven launch maps and Dark Market Credits can only be earned through gameplay, not real money.
Drop into a hostile zone and search for data drives, battling both AI enemies and real players, and extract to reap the rewards for future raids.
The "all-new high-stakes multiplayer experience" is rumored to be akin to Escape from Tarkov where it's every squad for themselves.
How far into development it changed into a more "traditional" Battlefield is unknown, according to insider Tom Henderson
Management is apparently composed of Star Wars Battlefront 2 figures who are allegedly "not committed enough to the project."
The recent open beta is apparently not as old as DICE had previously revealed, according to sources that spoke to insider Tom Henderson.
DICE also says that the game's beta is based on an older build of the game and lacks many improvements made since then.
Battlefield 2042's PS5 and Xbox Series X/S' standard editions will now also include the PS4/Xbox One versions at no additional charge.
Tom Henderson says the shooter will be releasing on November 19th regardless of the beta "because the team is confident it's ready."
"But we are still investigating the various options about making that available, and how it may impact cross-play," DICE says.
Battlefield 2042 will be using Easy Anti-Cheat, which is the same anti-cheat solution used by Apex Legends.
The imminent open beta for the multiplayer first person shooter won't require an awful lot of storage space on your console.
PS4 and PS5 players are free to check out the multiplayer beta without restrictions. Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S players need Gold though.
Along with Ribbons having three tiers with greater XP rewards, players can level up beyond 99 and unlock several cosmetic items through gameplay.
It will include one map, one mode, and four specialists. Minimum and recommended PC requirements for the beta have also been revealed.
Chinese streaming site Bilibili seems to have inadvertently leaked the dates for the upcoming shooter's planned open beta.
True to recent rumours, Battlefield 2042 has indeed been delayed- but only by less than a month. It will now launch in November.
