EA’s Origin digital store has just leaked the beta dates for the new Battlefield game, Battlefield 2042. According to Origin’s API, the Open Beta will launch on October 8th and will last until October 10th.
As its official description reads:
“Adapt and overcome in the near-future, all-out war of Battlefield™ 2042. Join the fight on Orbital with a diverse selection of Specialists, cutting-edge weaponry, and vehicles to choose from. Open Beta between October 8-9, 2021. Early access is available on October 6-7, 2021, 07:00 UTC, for all players who pre-order the game or are current EA Play members. Preload is available on October 5, 2021, 06:00 UTC.”
Do note that EA was quick to react and removed this description from the API. However, there is a screengrab from it that you can find here.
Battlefield 2042 is a first-person shooter that will be focusing on multiplayer action. Thus, the game will not feature any traditional single-player modes. The game also promises to feature a cutting-edge arsenal into dynamically-changing battlegrounds supporting 128 players. Additionally, it aims to include unprecedented scale, and epic destruction.
The game will be using NVIDIA DLSS and NVIDIA Reflex techs. However, we haven’t heard anything yet about any potential Ray Tracing effects.
Stay tuned for more!
