Battlefield 2042: How to Get Early Access in the Open Beta
If you want to play Battlefield 2042’s Open Beta before the game launches, here’s what you need to do:
Head to EA’s official website and you’ll see that Battlefield 2042 is already available to purchase. However, there are 3 separate editions for players to choose between.
Right now, it looks as though pre-ordering any of Standard Edition, Gold Edition, or Ultimate Edition for Battlefield 2042 will give players early access to the game’s Open Beta.
With the Gold and Ultimate Edition, you’ll also get access to Battlefield 2042’s first Battle Pass!
Buying the Gold or Ultimate Edition will even allow you to play Battlefield 2042 before its official release date!
Alternatively however, there’s another way to get Beta access without purchasing Battlefield 2042.

By signing up for EA Play, the publisher’s monthly subscription service, you’ll get early access to the Battlefield 2042 multiplayer testing period. On top of that, you’ll also get a 10-hour trial of the game, beginning on October 15.
Whether or not this offer applies to Xbox Game Pass subscribers, who get EA Play included as part of their membership, is currently unknown. However, there’s a new deal allowing gamers to get 3 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $1 so it’s worth the bet!
EA Play pro will similarly give players early Open Beta access. What’s more, it’ll provide full access to the Ultimate Edition of the game.
