Battlefield 2042 will be launching on November 19, 2021.
Battlefield 2042 did suffer a minor delay, however, the multiplayer online shooter game will finally be launching for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation® 4 and PlayStation® 5 on November 19, 2021. And we have brought for you some information on the launch, such as early access, pre load timing and such, which you may or may not already have come across.
When Is Battlefield 2042 Unlocking?
Neither EA nor DICE have revealed any information so far, as to what would be the unlock time for the game. And hence we cannot provide you with any concrete information on that. However, we can also hazard a guess, going by EA’s previous unlock times for its titles. Going by the same, it can be expected that Battlefield 2042 might be launching at 9:00PM PT on November 18, 2021. This would imply that the game will be launching at midnight ET on November 19, 2021. This is mere conjecture and guessing on our part and we will be updating you with the official unlock time as soon as EA updates it.
When Will Pre Loading Start For Battlefield 2042?
Pre loading for the game will be available, in the days leading up to the official launch date. And for this, we do know the exact times for when it will be starting, for the different platforms. Pre load is live now for the Xbox consoles. For PC, it will be available on November 10, 2021 at 2:00 PM PT, i.e., 5:00 PM ET. For the PlayStation® 4 and PlayStation® 5, preload will be available at midnight, local time, on November 10, 2021.
Is Battlefield 2042 Available On EA Early Access?
Yes. Please note that the mentioned here, so far, is only applicable to the standard version. If, however, you happen to have an EA Play membership, then you will have exclusive access to a 10 hour long trial that begins an entire week early, i.e., on November 12, 2021. And with an EA Play Pro membership, this is unlimited access, at the same time, as well. EA Play membership is included for free with an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription. So, in case you have one of those, you are set and you don’t have to do a thing, extra.
On the other hand, you can also purchase the Gold Edition or even the Ultimate Edition of the game as well. This will enable you to get access to the game a week earlier than the original release date. This will, however, be the costlier alternative and you will be spending a significantly greater amount of money for the same.
Battlefield 2042 developed by DICE and published by EA will be launching on November 19, 2021. The game will be the first mainline title in the Battlefield series of video games, after Battlefield 2, which will not be including a campaign. The game will, however, support cross progression as well as cross play, both, however, with limitations.
