Major Early Access Errors & Server Issues in Battlefield 2042 Beta

Battlefield fans have already had major issues preloading the Beta and have even had to use a workaround to download the Battlefield 2042 Beta on Origin.

Unable to Connect to EA Servers With EA Play

Firstly, and rather unsurprisingly, many players are having a hard time connecting to the EA servers to play the Battlefield 2042 Beta. Because they can’t connect to the servers, they can’t even get into the menu screen of the Beta.

This seems to be an issue with EA Play, but there is no concrete explanation for why this is happening yet.

Players are also having another server issue too.

‘Unkown Error’ Message Matchmaking Issues in Battlefield 2042 Beta

Next up, the players who are lucky enough to get into the Battlefield 2042 Beta are getting an ‘unknown error’ message.

This error is either stopping players from joining a game or just kicking them out of games midway through.

Luckily, this issue is just due to the servers being overloaded at the Beta’s release. These issues should hopefully clear up over time as EA is gradually scaling up the servers.

Plus, players have also found a fix for the ‘unknown error’ matchmaking issues in Battlefield 2042 Beta too.


Battlefield 2042 Beta Early Access Not Working – QR Code Error

Additionally, when trying to boot up the Beta in Early Access for the first time, many players can’t even launch the game.

A message asking players to “secure your Early Access”, alongside a QR Code pops up on the screen. This is happening to many players even if they should be able to play the Early Access Beta.

EA is currently investigating the issue, but, unfortunately, it has not found a fix for this issue yet.

Hopefully, EA and DICE fix these errors and server issues in the Battlefield 2042 Beta very soon. That way, players will finally be able to enjoy the game they have been waiting so long for.

Otherwise, rumors suggest that if the Beta doesn’t go well then EA could delay Battlefield 2042 until next year! Nobody would like to see the game pushed back even more.

In other news, a leaker has revealed the Battlefield 2042 Season 1 map, ‘Ridge’. This will be the first post-launch map for the game.

Finally, another huge leak has revealed more details about the mysterious Battlefield 2042 Hazard Zone game mode. This sounds like it could be huge!

I'm getting a window that's popping up that says I need to log into my EA account, but it has some Russian email address that is not/not mine. How do I by pass this?

Yeah, I cannot connect to the servers at all. In fairness to EA, it isn't like online gaming has been around for very long. This is still such a new technology for EA. They have only been having server issues for the last 15 plus years.
