Battlefield 2042 open beta coming September

One month before the game's launch.

Battlefield 2042 open beta will take place over September, EA and DICE today declared.

While specific dates weren’t detailed, it’s likely the open beta will follow a closed beta on offer to those who pre-order the upcoming shooter.

A closed alpha will take place before either beta and will likely incorporate cross-play functionality with a very limited amount of users. Like the betas, the date of the alpha isn’t known as yet either. We’ll keep you posted on all dates as they’re confirmed.

For now, we do know that Battlefield 2042 will head to Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PS4 and PS5 on 22 October.
