Battlefield 2042’s more expensive editions include 7 days’ early access to the game | VGC
Electronic Arts has confirmed that the more expensive editions of Battlefield 2042 will offer purchasers early access to the game.
The standard edition of Battlefield 2042 is set to release on retail and digital storefronts on October 22, 2021 priced at $59.99 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC, and $69.99 for Xbox Series X/S and PS5.
However, players who choose to pre-order the Battlefield 2042 Gold Edition for $89.99 on PC and $99.99 on consoles, or the Battlefield 2042 Ultimate Edition for $109.99 on PC and $119.99 on consoles, will receive early access to the game beginning on October 15.
EA Play members will also be able to access a 10-hour trial starting on October 15, 2021.
Players who pre-order any edition of the game and EA Play members will receive early access to an open beta too, which has yet to be dated.
EA and developer DICE confirmed the first Battlefield 2042 details during a live stream reveal event on Wednesday.
The multiplayer-only game will support 128-player battles on “massive-scale” maps filled with dynamic weather and other environmental hazards, although the Xbox One and PS4 versions will be capped at 64 players and include reduced map sizes.
2042 introduces Specialists, a new type of playable solider. Inspired by the four traditional Battlefield classes, they will be equipped with their own unique Specialist Trait and Specialty and will have fully customisable loadouts.
