Battlefield 2042 EA Play Trial Release Date


EA play members, including Xbox Game Pass and Game Pass Ultimate subscribers, will be able to begin 10 hours of unlimited early access to Battlefield 2042 on November 12, 2021!

New Gameplay Trailer

During today's announcements, EA released a new Battlefield 2042 gameplay trailer. This includes a new focus around the Portal Mode.


Portal Mode

Portal Mode is a sandbox in which players can create customized game modes using assets from all past Battlefield games.

This mode will include a version of revamped all-time favorites guns, vehicles, maps, and specialty equipment.

Players can also create unique setups limiting the type of weapons available for each team. Full matches with one team battling with planes and the other only with tanks.

Even Battles through time, like small futuristic squads vs entire armies from the XX century.
