It will be an underrated statement to make that Battlefield 2042 is one of the most anticipated games of 2021. Battle royale is hands down one of the most popular genres out there in the ever-expanding world of gaming. Fans of the series have always wanted to see a full-scale battle royale game. Now, DICE and EA have finally been working towards making that a reality with Battlefield 2042.
Ever since the game’s official trailer came out three months ago, the gaming community has been on the look out for more updates about the game. It is exhilarating to see the classic Battlefield franchise take a turn to roll out a proper battle royale game. Of course, Battlefield V Firestorm battle royale exists. However, unfortunately, Firestorm is pretty much dead now. It got a lot of hype two years ago and then, it all just disappeared.
Further, from bugs and glitches to visibility issues and a very underwhelming overall gameplay, the game could not sustain in a genre dominated by Call of Duty Warzone, Fortnite and PUBG. This is the reason why the entire gaming community is looking forward to the release of Battlefield 2042. Being a battle royale centric game, it will probably right the wrongs that Battlefield V’s Firestorm failed to understand.
The game was previously scheduled for release on October 22, 2021. However, recently, EA and DICE rolled out an official notice to delay the game’s release to November 19, 2021. According to the notice, it was primarily because of the ongoing pandemic that they want to take things slow and ensure the release of a good game. Ahead of its November 19 release, the game’s Early Access and Open Beta dates have now been leaked.
Battlefield 2042: Early Access and Open Beta Dates (Leaked)
Noted and reliable tipster Tom Henderson took to Twitter to reveal the Early Access and Open Beta dates for the upcoming battle royale game. According to Henderson, Battlefield 2042 Early Access will roll out on October 6, 2021. In addition, he also added that the Open Beta will be landing on October 8, 2021.
It should not come as a surprise as several games are getting delayed as a result of the ongoing pandemic. Moreover, game developers are very cautious about not making the same mistakes that CD Projekt RED made with Cyberpunk 2077. A delay is always better than releasing an incomplete and bugged out game.
