The early access date of Battlefield 2042 gives gamers hungry to play the new title on PlayStation, Xbox and PC their first chance to do so.

But there will be a number of different ways to access BF this year, some of which will have to wait longer than others.

The good news is that anyone can preload the game before all this happens, meaning there won’t be huge download queues on launch day.

EA has confirmed that Xbox users will be able to preload the game first, followed by those using PlayStation and PC platforms.

Preloading for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S will begin on November 6, followed by preloading on PC and PlayStation on November 10.

The times are as follows:

  • Xbox on November 6 at 12pm PDT / 7am GMT
  • PlayStation on November 10 at noon local time
  • PC on Nov 10 at 3pm PDT / 11am GMT.

But what about all the different ways gamers will be able to access and play Battlefield 2042 in the coming months.

The best deal will be available to those willing to spend the most money playing BF before the full release date.

The Battlefield 2042 Gold or Ultimate Editions offer early access starting Friday, November 12, 2021.

This version comes with full access to the entire game, meaning there are no restrictions when it comes to how long you can play.

Battlefield 2042 early access also begins November 12 for those who have an EA Play or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription.

However, this comes in the form of a ten-hour trial, meaning you’ll have to wait until November 19th to play more after that.

EA Play is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X platforms, and a version of EA Play is also available on PC.

EA Play Pro costs more, but offers full access to the game without the time limit set on the console.

Meanwhile, owning Xbox Game Pass Ultimate makes it possible to play the EA Play Early Access trial on Xbox and PC.

Anyone who purchased the base version of the game will have to wait until November 19 to play across all platforms.

A big draw for many players is access to Battlefield Portal, a new mode that offers access to previous games, as well as the ability to build new experiences.

“From launch, we have standard live in-game experiences that allow you to relive these classic maps, alongside their classic factions, equipped with the weapons, gadgets and classes that brought them to life.

“Within Battlefield Portal, you can jump into those modes directly from the game, or if you prefer, you can use these experiences as starting points that you can edit to create something more personal. You can make simple edits to armor, add more cards to the rotation, or you can start tweaking things so finely detailed like bullet speed, health regeneration rates, and whether a player takes more damage when hit in the head, or to the trunk.

“If you want to go all out and create something truly unique, the Rules Editor gives you the deepest level of control over the kind of Battlefield experience you want to create.”
