Battlefield 2042 coming soon

Battlefield 2042 is set to launch in November, but the beta version will be available in early October. Early birds that have preordered the game will get early access on October 6 and 7, respectively, while the rest are on October 8 and 9.

Battlefield 2042 joins the list of multiplayer first-person shooters that have been coming to Playstation, Xbox, and PCs.

The announcement was made on EA’s blog post and mentioned it would be available in open beta. According to the blog, players will only access two modes, Conquest and Orbital map, during the beta test and will test four characters.

Minimum requirements

To access the game, PCs must meet recommended specification requirements. Players must be running Windows 10 with DirectX 12 and a minimum of 100GB free space in the hard drive. A graphic card, 8GB RAM, Intel Core i5 6600k processor, and an AMD Ryzen 5 3600 are part of the requirements.

It is important to note that the PC requirements are only for the open beta and are subject to change following the official launch of the game and as soon as Windows 11 kicks off.

Judging from some of the reactions on Twitter, players seem to be overwhelmed with the requirements.

Stay put for November

Battlefield will be coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PS4, PS5, and on PCs in November. It is interesting to see how the specifications only cite Windows 10 and not Windows 11, so we are keen to see the compatibility requirements.
