Battlefield 2042 Playtest Dates

EA and Ripple Effect have stated that the Battlefield 2042 playtest will be taking place next week, from August 12 to August 15, so anyone who wants to take part can sign up for EA Playtesting.

Registering for the Battlefield 2042 playtest won’t ensure that fans will gain access to the Battlefield 2042 beta as EA is only planning to have a few thousand participants, so most players will have to wait for the open beta this coming September.
