Battlefield 2042’s limited beta testing phase kicked off. The publishers EA are terming this as a technical test. Following the launch of the game, several screenshots, videos and other snippets from the game started surfacing on the Internet.
EA was quick to squash these videos as soon as they started surfacing. The reason behind it is that the players who are taking part in this technical test had to previously sign an NDA. The NDA clearly states that the testers might face a ban from the test, final game and any other such future tests in case they leak details about the ongoing technical test.

In a series of tweets, Freeman explained that players who were accepted into the program had to sign an NDA. He further went on to explain what the possible grounds were for ban from the program. In his tweets, Freeman further states that breaching the NDA would lead to strikes from the concerned players’ channels.
While we understand the implications of the breach of the NDA and the actions EA is taken to avoid them, it is a rude awakening and a lesson for all of us who more often than not agree to the Terms and Conditions without going through them.
