The next Battlefield game is nearly here. Our first look at the game was via the open beta trailer which featured some pretty cinematic imagery. Rocket launches, tornadoes and storms and complete environmental destruction. At this point, players will be shooting down weather hazards instead of each other!
The game is hosting an open beta event in October for four days, then it’ll be later released in November on PlayStation 4 & 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, Origin (PC), Steam (PC) and Epic Games (PC).
Although, as fun and absolutely wild as the game looks it remains quite the pricey purchase. So it’s not surprising that people are hoping Battlefield 2042 will be on EA Play upon release. Hopefully to save a pretty penny.

What are the live service plans for Battlefield 2042?
EA are taking a new approach to live service for a Battlefield game. Players will be given the services and evolution they have come to expect from modern multiplayer games, all aimed at keeping the community playing together for years to come.
The game will continue evolving its world and expanding on the fiction through Seasons. Each one lasting for about three months. Every Season will come with a new free and paid-for Battle Pass, delivering new content to chase after.
In the first year of live service, EA will deliver four Seasons, with four Battle Passes, four new Specialists, along with more fresh content.
There will be more to share on the first Season of Battlefield 2042 before launch.
