How to Pre-Load Battlefield 2042

In order to pre-load the game, you have to have pre-ordered Battlefield 2042, or have EA Play for your 10-hour free trial.

After that, it's just a matter of heading over to the store page after the time the game is available and selecting the pre-load option! Nice and easy, and you'll be able to hop into the game as soon as it launches with this handy little treat.

Which mode will you be hopping into first? Standard All-Out Warfare seems like a fun one, but we'll probably check out Hazard Zone first before jumping into the Battlefield Portal to see what exciting stuff the community builds as well.
