Battlefield 2042: Beta start date - dealers with new information on activation

Battlefield 2042

The start of the Battlefield 2042 Beta is getting closer. New information is now coming from the Italian retailer Media World: As VGC reports, the product pages recently revealed that the beta will be activated on September 6th - and the test phase will run until September 11th. "Pre-order this product by September 3rd to get access to the beta of the game from September 6th to 11th," wrote the Italian retailer. A look at the shop pages shows that the information has since been deleted. It therefore remains to be seen whether the dates will actually be confirmed - or whether it was a mistake.

DICE has not yet provided any information on the specific start date of the Battlefield 2042 Beta. The developers only announced that the test phase will begin in September. This is also underlined by a recent tweet from the developers. A spokesman only commented on VGC that the beta release window is in September. Most recently it was reported that the early access beta will start on September 4th, according to the information provided by individual streamers.

Battlefield 2042: New leak shows weapon gameplay from the alpha test

A few days before the possible start of the Battlefield 2042 beta, new gameplay leaks from the new first-person shooter are circulating through the internet. var lstExcludedArticleTicker = '1378845,1378895,1377737,1378717'; The German streamer Pietsmiet announces a stream for the BF 2042 Beta for this Saturday in its current program schedule. Which of the statements will ultimately prove to be true remains to be seen. The full version of Battlefield 2042 (buy now € 56.99 / € 53.99) will be released on October 22nd on PC and consoles. The beta should take place on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, PS4 and PS5. We have included a current video below.

Battlefield 2042 beta may be mere days away, if this listing is legit

It looks like the beta for Battlefield 2042 could open in under a week’s time, if the pre-order listing on an Italian website is anything to go by.

As spotted on Reddit, Italian retailer Mediaworld has claimed that the early access beta would be going live on Monday, September 6, before the listing was deleted. You can still see it here thanks to the magic of the Way Back Machine.

If you don’t speak Italian, this is what Google Translate makes of the text in question: “buy by 03.09.2021 in presale this product you will receive access to the early beta of the video game from 06.09 to 11.09.” 

Clunky, yes — and slightly confusing given Europeans use the DD/MM/YY approach to dates — but the meaning is hard to dispute: pre-order by tomorrow and you’ll get access to the beta from next Monday to Saturday.

Given the pre-order cut-off date is so close, it’s slightly odd that the listing has been removed. You would have thought that EA would want to shout about this pre-order incentive from the rooftops, but apparently not. 

Though the company has previously revealed that pre-ordering any version of the game will allow beta access, it refused to confirm or deny the exact dates in question.  When asked, the company would only reconfirm that “our open beta release window is September,” according to Videogame Chronicles.

Although beta access comes with every pre-order, there are specific perks that EA is reserving for the more expensive packages. Those paying $90 to $120 for the PC or console ‘Gold’ and ‘Ultimate’ editions of the game will get early access to the game starting on October 15; a week before the title becomes available to everyone on September 22.

Those extra seven days could be crucial practice, given Battlefield 2042 is an exclusively multiplayer experience, with the only single-player option being battles against bots. A lot of bots, too, given the game now supports matches of up to 128 players — although only if you’re playing on PC, Xbox Series X/S or PS5 unfortunately, with last-generation players having to make do with ‘just’ the 64.
