The Battlefield 2042 open beta kicks off in September
The Battlefield 2042 beta dates appear to have been revealed ahead of schedule.
EA recently confirmed plans to hold a Battlefield 2042 open beta in September. Furthermore, it was announced that pre-order customers will get early access.
While Electronic Arts is yet to officially announce dates for the Battlefield 2042 beta, a recent leak appears to have shed light on the matter.
According to a post on Reddit, the Battlefield 2042 beta will be available to pre-load on September 3 at 9pm BST.
Pre-order customers will be able to start playing the Early Access beta from 9pm BST on September 4.
Fortunately, there’s not too long to wait for the beta to launch in full, as the open beta kicks off at the same time on September 6.
If the leaks are to be believed, the beta ends later that week on the afternoon of September 11.
It’s a pretty extensive beta period, lasting a full week for anybody who pre-orders the game early.
Once the beta comes to an end, EA has just over a month to put the finishing touches on what is shaping up to be one of the biggest games of the year.
Speaking of pre-orders, customers who purchase the game early will receive one or two additional perks.
This includes the Baku ACB-90 melee takedown knife, as well as the Mr. Chompy Epic Weapon Charm.
Finally, pre-order customers will also receive the ‘Landfall’ Player Card Background and the ‘Old Guard’ Tag.
And remember, pre-ordering Battlefield 2042 will also net you early access to the aforementioned beta in September.
