Battlefield 2042 Beta Dated for September 22nd, According to Leaker


Author: Sonic

The Battlefield 2042 Beta will begin on September 22nd, according to renowned leaker Tom Henderson, who even went as far as promising to give away ten copies of the game to random followers if that proves to be false.


Apparently, this is for the early access beta that's exclusive to pre-order customers, so the open beta might be due on September 24th.


Yesterday, Italian retailer MediaWorld had listed the Battlefield 2042 beta for September 6th, but that seems to be way too soon given that Electronic Arts has given no official word yet. It may have been a listing mistake, which is far from uncommon with online retailers.

We don't know yet the content that will be in the Battlefield 2042 beta, though we should find out soon. It's also likely that DICE will officially reveal the last mode, Hazard Zone, rumored to be a mix between Escape from Tarkov and Hunt: Showdown. As a reminder, Battlefield 2042 launches on October 22nd.


Battlefield 2042 is a first-person shooter that marks the return to the iconic all-out warfare of the franchise. Adapt and overcome in a near-future world transformed by disorder. Squad up and bring a cutting-edge arsenal into dynamically-changing battlegrounds supporting 128 players, unprecedented scale, and epic destruction.


ALL-OUT WARFARE

The next generation of fan-favorites Conquest and Breakthrough features the largest Battlefield maps ever and up to 128 players. Experience the intensity of all-out warfare on maps filled with dynamic weather and spectacular world events.


Conquest

Battlefield's massive, iconic sandbox mode returns – this time supporting 128 players on PC. The maps have been specifically designed for this vast scale, with action divided into "clusters" of various kinds. Also, the action now centers around sectors consisting of several flags instead of individual control points.


Breakthrough

The return of Breakthrough sees two teams – Attackers and Defenders – battle over larger-scale sectors as the Attackers push towards the final objective. Each sector is designed to house a larger number of players, enabling more strategic choice and more flanking opportunities. Approach the capture areas from multiple locations and take advantage of more types of tactical possibilities.
