Battlefield 2042 beta dates CONFIRMED ahead of tomorrow’s reveal


BATTLEFIELD 2042 is is out in November after a delay, but it looks like next week’s beta could be announced tomorrow.

EA announced that the upcoming Battlefield 2042 would be pushed back from October 22 to November 19.

Of course, it was assumed that the beta was getting postponed too, although there was a moment when the original beta dates seemed like a slim possibility.

Twitter tipster Tom Henderson shared the new Battlefield 2042 beta dates earlier this month.

Henderson has a strong track record, but his tip has been leant more weight thanks to a leak from Chinese livestreaming website Bilibili.

“Bilibili has seemingly leaked the Battlefield 2042 Beta dates,” Henderson tweeted alongside a screenshot.

The website says the beta will run from October 6 through October 9.

Henderson’s intel stated that Early Access would kick off on October 6, with the open beta following on October 8.

Regarding Bilibili’s leaked dates, Henderson said that it “doesn’t mean the beta ends [on October 9].”

Since then, dataminers have found the beta dates in EA’s Origin API and it looks like that will be the case.

Henderson shared a screenshot which apparently confirms that Early Access will run from October 6-7. The open beta will follow on October 8-9.

Preload will be available on October 5 at 6am UTC which is October 4, 11pm PST and October 5, 2am EST / 7am BST / 8am CEST.

Henderson added that Battlefield 2042 beta announcement with a trailer is set to drop on Wednesday, September 29.
