Call of Duty: Vanguard’s beta has come and gone. Now it’s time for Battlefield 2042 to give us a taste of what’s to come.

Tuesday (Sept.28), EA revealed the dates for Battlefield 2042’s open beta, and it’s right around the corner. Starting October 6 at midnight PST, those who preordered the game and are EA Play members will have early access to the beta until October 7. If you’re an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscriber, you will also be able to take advantage of early access because EA Play is included in your subscription.

Once early access is done, the beta will open up to everyone from October 8-9 and can be downloaded free of charge. You can begin preloading the beta on your console of choice or PC starting October 5. EA also shared that players will experience the massive, iconic sandbox Conquest mode where the “action now centers around sectors consisting of several flags instead of individual control points.”

The intense action that we witnessed in the reveal trailer will take place on the Orbital map that EA describes as “a race against time and hostile conditions as you fight around the site of an imminent rocket launch.” So we will get our first glimpse of the world-changing event that we saw take place in the trailer involving the launching of the rocket.

As far as the specialists available for use, there will be four, Webster Mackay and his grappling hook, Maria Falck the combat surgeon, Pytor “Boris” Guskovsky, the sentry operator, and Wikus “Casper” Van Daele, the recon soldier/sniper.
