Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Subscribers Get Battlefield 2042 Beta Early Access

The Battlefield 2042 open beta will take place from 6 October to 9 October 2021. Xbox Games Pass Ultimate subscribers can get Early Access to the Battlefield 2042 Beta. You can start downloading now.

Fans can begin downloading the beta build by finding the Battlefield 2042 beta on their platform’s store and selecting the Download button. Note that since the Battlefield 2042 beta download has a size of 20GB, it’s a good idea to preload the game now so that you can jump right into the action when access to the build opens and don’t have to wait for the installation to complete.

The Battlefield 2042 open beta will only feature one map; Orbital. In the Orbital map, players will be playing the game’s Conquest mode, which is basically a ‘capture the flag’ mode. In addition, there will be four Specialist characters to choose from during the beta: Webster Mackay, Maria Falck, Pyotr “Boris” Guskovsky, and Wikus “Casper” Van Daele.
