Battlefield 2042’s open beta is an older build from a couple of months ago, so players may experience issues that will be fixed in the full game.
DICE has confirmed that the Battlefield 2042 beta is old and isn’t fully reflective of the full game due out in November. DICE is attempting to set some expectations as the Battlefield 2042 beta does feature some bugs and issues that may appear otherwise unusual to players. Although the beta is releasing a month ahead of launch, it’s pretty common for developers to use older builds that are in good enough shape to branch off from the final game.
The Battlefield 2042 beta is now live for those who have pre-ordered the game and will open up to everyone on October 8. The beta will run until October 10, giving players plenty of time to get a taste of the new shooter before it releases. Battlefield 2042 is the last of the three big shooters to host a beta, but it’s also arguably the most ambitious. With tornadoes, 128 players, and all sorts of chaos, it’s the most taxing FPS releasing this year. Therefore, there will be some issues present in the build.
