Battlefield 2042 alpha coming July, beta ahead of launch


Battlefield 2042 alpha will kick off in July, with a beta coming ahead of launch, EA and DICE have confirmed.

The alpha will take place in early July, though not all players are guaranteed access as DICE will be emailing random, long-time Battlefield players with an invitation to join.

Those who pre-order the game will get guaranteed access to the beta that follows, though other details of the beta aren’t known as yet.

DICE’s new Battlefield title was detailed, offering 128-player maps on PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PC, and only 64-player maps on last-gen consoles. Its current-gen versions of the game will cost $10 more than last-gen versions.

Battlefield 2042 heads to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and Windows PC on 22 October.
