Battlefield 2042 Early Access Begins

The first skirmishes of Battlefield 2042 are getting underway today, as Early Access to the new installment in the shooter series has begun for qualifying customers. This paves the way for the full official launch of the game one week from today. So who gets in as of today? "Players who purchased the game’s Gold or Ultimate Edition, as well as EA Play Pro subscribers will be able to play starting today, and the Play First Trial for EA Play, Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will grant subscribers access for up to 10 hours." Here's an Official Gameplay Trailer from June, and here's a quick recruiting pitch:

The game features a compelling multiplayer offering that caters to all types of players through three distinct experiences - All-Out Warfare, Hazard Zone and Battlefield Portal - delivering the next generation of multiplayer warfare.

Ive heard the Portal mode is super awesome

sounds good Gallery
This is the only reason I'd pick up the game.

from what ive heard, it justifies that

theoretically it could be the last BF game you need for many, many years to come

once I heard you can do scripting and "logic edits" etc, i realized it actually might be what we dreamed it could be

I remember playing a game by novalogic, I forget the name (Joint operations I think). It had helicopters, APCs, boats. Was a 64 a side game and was pretty much a warzone. You could ferry troops, door gun, tab it, snipe etc. Really good fun. Eventually hacks and ESP killed it and the developers did little about it. A real shame as this was a good 15 years ago.

Not many games have had unmodded 128 player maps as standard. Let alone with proper joint ops gameplay....
Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Sadly, this game looks just like all the others. Man, so long good old days of gaming.

Hoping this FPS can provide some 'casual fun' with its multiplayer... I'm burdened with intense team-focused titles, and fast tactical shooters.

Launching 5 platforms at once was always going to be a disaster. I don't understand why big devs keep trying to do this, they just don't want to give an inch to the competition? Or can't tolerate the bitching and moaning from social media with a staggered release? Seems like everyone loses with a buggy launch.

It will be discounted 50% by the spring, and way more stable with new content. Just takes patience.

Judging from the comments
EA is doing them a favor.

I only had time for the forced bot match when you first launch the game before work. It's hard to judge from that, but frame rate is disappointing. It's not choppy or anything per se, but on a 5950x with a 3080 Ti I'm getting drops to less than 100fps and that's with DLSS ON and default settings.

Posted early this morning but will post again on this thread.

This is a budget Battlefield Game. Almost to the point of being a mobile phone type game in terms of gameplay with much better graphics and just as bad UI.
Was streaming for about 4 hours going through everything from initial setup, binding keys, looking through all the gameplay modes, configuring weapons/vehicles/unlocks, etc.

If ya want to watch its up to you, but Here ya go.

I am very surprised at the quality of the game, and am very glad I am only renting it from EA Pro vs paying for a full price game.

Early Access, so ... it's still in Alpha right?

That's what the open beta felt like!
