Right now, EA’s Battlefield 2042 Technical Playtest is leading to all manner of leaks online, but leakers could face being banned from the game when it launches.
EA is taking Battlefield 2042 leaks seriously already, and although a lot of users are seeing fit to broadcast their gameplay, it’s a risky move.
Of course, giving fans early access to a game like Battlefield 2042 is a risk in itself. But the potential for leaks is likely worth it for DICE to test its servers and player response early.
It’s worth pointing out that Battlefield 2042 is far from a finished product in its Technical Playtest. Instead, the game appears to be deliberately downgraded in both graphics and overall performance.
And while the current Battlefield 2042 is a true testing ground, leaking gameplay may get players banned forever.
Make sure you sign up for the Battlefield 2042 Open Beta to play the real experience early!
EA Banning Battlefield 2042 Technical Playtest Leakers
If you’re thinking of leaking Battlefield 2042’s ongoing Technical Playtest, expect a ban for your efforts.
According to Lead Community Manager Freeman, EA will be taking action against leakers even before launch. Not only are some fans losing access to the Technical Playtest, punishment doesn’t end there.
In a new thread on Twitter, celebrating the success of the Technical Playtest, Freeman reveals that leakers will have a bad time in the future.
Not only will they lose access to future EA playtests, they might also lose access to EA products altogether.
“You’re under NDA for this Playtest, so Videos, Screenshots and Streaming from this Playtest result in Strikes on your channels,” the Community Manager reports.”Break the rules, expect to lose access to both the Technical Playtest, future EA Tests, and potentially access to 2042 itself when it releases.”
Those who have leaked Battlefield 2042 gameplay may not be able to play the game at launch. However, while this ban is more likely tied to your EA account than your hardware, no further details are provided.
It appears that sharing your account details with a friend will also lead to a ban. Freeman confirms that doing so is “going to end badly for you.”
Right now, it’s best to just follow the rules if you want to enjoy Battlefield 2042 at launch. With an Open Beta coming next month, it won’t be long before we can all experience the game for ourselves.
Meanwhile, players can already unlock the Battle Hardened Legendary skin for Irish in Battlefield 2042. And thankfully, it doesn’t look as Pay-to-Win as some of the other Battlefield 2042 skins!
And at last, we’re getting news about a Battlefield 2042 Battle Royale mode, and whether it’s possible after all.
Don’t forget that you can play Battlefield 1 and 5 for free in the road to launch!
