The Battlefield 2042 Early Access release date is slated for this week on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC platforms, with EA offering plenty of ways to test the game out early.

Fans who are not patient to enter the future hellscape can do so by pre-ordering Gold or Ultimate Editions of the game or by using EA Play.

If you have EA Play via Xbox Game Pass or an active subscription, you can play a 10-hour trial of the game before the official release date later in November.

Those who deposit some extra cash on a nice version of BR2042 can start playing as soon as things start later this week and the servers are live.

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

Download of the game on all platforms has started today, although it may not be possible for those preparing to use the ten-hour trial via EA Play.


EA has confirmed that Battlefield 2042 Early Access will begin on Friday, November 12, 2021 at 8am GMT for PC players.

That means gamers using Steam, Origin, and EA’s beta app have pre-ordered the Gold or Ultimate version.

On console, Battlefield 2042 Early Access on Xbox and PlayStation begins on November 12 at 12:01 AM local time.

From what’s been shared so far, the Battlefield 2042 EA Play trial will begin on every platform at the same time.

The game weighs differently on each platform, but gamers should be prepared to find at least 90GB of space on their console or PC.

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.

And as always, those who get a physical copy of the game will be able to play online whenever servers are available in your area.

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 directly into those modes from within 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 as finely detailed as bullet speed, health recovery rate, and whether a player takes more damage when he gets hit in the head, or to the torso.”

The final release date for all versions of Battlefield 2042 is set for November 19, 2021.
