Battlefield 2042’s first technical test will begin next week, with email invites detailing how to join the playtest going out now for select players. The test will run August 12-16, and will span specific three-hour windows each day.
The test is under a non-disclosure agreement, unlike Halo Infinite’s recent technical preview, so don’t expect streamers to be broadcasting this one. Players who signed up for an EA Playtesting profile have a chance to join the test, but EA has previously stressed that signing up doesn’t guarantee access tech test access and that only a small number of participants will be invited. The test is only for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S.
