This week marks the first technical playtest for Electronic Arts’ next game in the Battlefield series. Lucky participants have been invited to play the new Battlefield early under a strict NDA. However, that hasn’t stopped some players from leaking their gameplay experiences this week, as some of it has been uploaded online.
There are several playtest sessions occurring this week for Battlefield 2042, including five sessions that last for 3 hours, and the last one going for 9 hours. The playtest is likely an Alpha build of the game, so it is certainly not representative of the final experience, but it does give us a general idea of how the multiplayer will look and feel.
Needless to say, these videos will likely be taken down soon. Countless videos have already been uploaded and swiftly taken down, so if any of these videos do go offline then feel free to link some more in the discussions area below if you find one still available!
Fear not though, as a free Open Beta is planned this September before the game’s official launch on October 22nd. If you pre-order Battlefield 2042, or are an EA Play or EA Play Pro member, then you’ll get early access to that Open Beta. However, the official dates for the Open Beta have not yet been revealed.
