The beta will itself be divided into two versions. First, we have the Closed Beta. This will be an exclusive release for those who have pre-ordered the game. Secondly, we have the Open beta. The Open beta should drop a few days after the closed version. However, this will be free of cost and players won’t have to shell out any money for this version.


As of now, there has been no confirmed start date for the Battlefield 2042 Beta. But, since the game is arriving on 22 October you can expect the Beta to drop somewhere around mid-September. We will come to know more as time goes on obviously.

For the month of July, DICE will be hosting a technical playtest for various players. This will have very limited entry and will be joined by strict NDAs too. There is also no way to register yourself for this and the devs will be very careful about who they hand the game to.

So, as of now your only bet of getting a taste for the game is to register for the beta test. If you do get to take part in the Techincal Test, well, get a lottery ticket while you’re at it.
