It’s been a long time since we last played Battlefield. Would you believe there’s been seventeen games in the series now? The last one we had was in 2018, with Battlefield V. After three years, there’s no surprise that people are excited to get their hands on Battlefield 2042.

Players are so close to get back in the battle. And after the newly released trailer, we got a proper look into what to expect in the upcoming FPS by DICE.

Although the full game isn’t set to release until November 19th, players can hop into the Open Beta to get an early taste of the game. The Open Beta will be a timed event, where you can experience and play the game for a few days.

From what we’ve seen, the game already looks visually stunning. But as with any good-looking game, we can expect it to be quite demanding. It’s no wonder that the next-gen consoles can handle 128 players in a server, unlike the last-gen ones that can only take on 68.


Battlefield 2042 open beta start time

The open beta will be a timed event, it’ll be live for four days. After that, players will need to wait until November 19th’s release.

The open beta will only be available between October 6-9, 2021. It starts on Wednesday 6th and ends Saturday the 9th of October.

However, only those with early access will be able to play on the 6th and 7th. Players who are EA member or people who pre-ordered the game will have early access. All other players can start playing on the 8th and 9th of October. Making the most of this limited time they can get a good taste of the game.
