Will Battlefield 2042 be on EA Play?

Yes, Battlefield 2042 will be on the popular subscription service and the Pro version of the service when it launches later this year.

EA Play members (including Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers) will have early access to Open Beta and a 10-hour trial of Battlefield 2042 starting on October 15, 2021.

Pro members get the Ultimate Edition of the game, and all rewards associated with it, including early access to Open Beta and access to the full game from October 15, 2021.

An EA community manager, EA_Illium, confirmed the news over on EA’s Answer HQ:

“Battlefield 2042 will be available on both EA Play and EA Play Pro, we have a pre-order page that shows what the game will come with from pre-ordering or on which subscription you have.”

There is no doubt that plenty of subscribers will be taking advantage of the high-profile franchise’s newest entry being on the subscription service and see if they enjoy it for no extra cost.
