[ad_1]

The much anticipated Battlefield 2042 is being released on the 22nd October 2021, for those of you who can’t wait until then, there is hope! Whilst there will be an open beta for Battlefield 2042 ahead of release for anyone who preorders the game, EA and DICE have also announced the Battlefield 2042 Technical Playtests which will take place beginning on the 12th of August 2021. We have the full rundown of the Battlefield 2042 beta including release dates, sessions, and how you can register below.

EA has been quite clear that this initial Playtest is not focused on gameplay but instead will be focused on testing the infrastructure and servers under load. They have also stated that they will be using grey box environments that will be significantly different from the final design upon the launch of the game in October.

How to sign up for Battlefield 2042 technical playtest

To register for the Battlefield 2042 playtest you need to go to EA Playtest and sign up. If you don’t have an EA account you will need to create one first. Once you have signed up, you will then need to wait for EA and DICE to contact you.

Please keep in mind, EA has already announced that these playtests will be significantly limited to just a few thousand participants, so simply signing up and saying you are interested will not guarantee you a place within one of the playtest sessions.

Note: registrations close at 11 pm PDT on the 8th of August 2021.
