The Early Access period of Battlefield 2042 beta is coming to an end as Electronic Arts makes the game accessible to everyone.

The Battlefield 2042 beta is currently available to pre-order customers and EA Play subscribers.

If you haven’t pre-ordered the game and haven’t subscribed to EA Play, you can start playing the Battlefield 2042 beta on October 8.

The Battlefield 2042 open beta has a start time of 8 hours BST on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One and PC.

Unfortunately, the beta ends on October 9, although there is always a chance it will be extended.

Since the beta will only run for one day, it’s worth downloading Battlefield 2042 early so you don’t miss out.

Fans can preload the Battlefield 2042 beta by going to the PlayStation Store page, the Xbox store, and the EA Origin website.

One thing worth noting if you are an Xbox user is that a Gold is required to access and play the beta.

It’s better news on PS5 and PS4, where PlayStation Plus is not required to play.

Content-wise, the Battlefield 2042 beta lets fans explore a massive map in Conquest mode.

The massive sandbox mode supports 128 players on Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC.

Electronic Arts explains more: “Battlefield’s massive, iconic sandbox mode returns – this time with support for 128 players on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC.

“The maps are specifically designed for this massive scale, with the action broken up into ‘clusters’ of different kinds. Also, the action now centers around sectors made up of several flags rather than individual control points.”

Fans can experience the epic game mode on the Orbital map, which takes place on the site of a rocket launch.

“It’s a race against time and hostile conditions as you fight around the site of an imminent missile launch. Watch out for both enemy fire and storms emerging on this dynamic map.”

As the open beta is proving to be incredibly popular, EA has warned players to expect one or two server issues.

In a recent blog post, the company claims to have scaled up server capacity in various parts of the world.

“While we fixed some early capacity issues, we know that a smaller number of players are still experiencing server issues.

“If you’re an EA Play subscriber, we’ve been able to get the majority of you into the game. We’re also aware that a small percentage of players are still experiencing issues.”

Express Online will continue to monitor the situation, so stay tuned for server updates and additional news.
