Battlefield 2042 is one of the most anticipated premieres of autumn, although its launch is delayed a little longer than expected. Originally foreseen for October, the multiplayer shooter will now arrive in November, and to amenity this additional wait, EA has announced an open beta of the game on all the platforms that will take place in just a week. A beta of free access that, in addition, will not require PS Plus to play it in the PlayStation consoles. But, in Xbox, the story is different .
For some reason that Electronic Arts does not end up explaining, the Battlefield 2042 Open Beta will require an active subscription to Xbox Live Gold to play on Xbox , when it does not require your counterpart in the consoles of the competition. A fact that stands out more because Xbox already allows to play F2P online games without having the subscription, as PlayStation does. This is indicated by the North American company on the official website of Battlefield 2042.
Battlefield s open beta 2042 is available to play on PC and consoles. Note that PlayStation Plus is not necessary to participate in the Beta open, but if you play on Xbox, You must have a subscription to Xbox Live Gold , says EA says in its Frequently Asked Questions section. It is possible that this difference is due to what, despite being a free open beta, Battlefield 2042 is a game game and would not enter that recent free online policy for the F2P games adopted by Xbox
We will see then if Microsoft or EA announce something about it next week, but for now, the fact is that Battlefield beta 2042 will require Xbox Live Gold to play. The free multiplayer Shooter test will take place on October 8 and 9, although players who reserve the title, or that are subscribed to EA PLAY, can enjoy it from two days before. For its part, Battlefield 2042 will be available on November 19 this year. If you want to know more information about the multiplayer shooter, here you have our Battlefield 2042 impressions.
