While DICE hasn’t revealed any new info regarding the Battlefield 2042 beta, it seems some info has surfaced about it, though in an unofficial capacity. Multiple gamers have reported that Amazon has started sending out Battlefield 2042 beta codes today.
Over on Reddit, multiple threads and people have posted on how Amazon has sent out the beta codes to pre-order buyers, and this applies to console and PC. In addition to that, it has also tagged the early access beta date for September 23, which we assume was the former beta date before the game officially got delayed by a month.

Reddit user VikingAnalRape posted that they got an Origin code, and while it lets the owner input the code, nothing shows up in the game library once redeemed. Here’s a screenshot of it:
While EA has remained mum on when the beta will be available, the actual open beta client has been uploaded on EA’s Origin platform, too! Thanks to Reddit user daniluk400, we have the key art, description, and other data.
Per the Origin client, it seems the pre-load would or should have started on September 18, with the early access beta being available on September 20, though it’ll only be up for four hours. Here’s the description of the beta client:
“Adapt and overcome in the near-future, all-out war of Battlefield™ 2042. Join the fight on Orbital with a diverse selection of Specialists, cutting-edge weaponry, and vehicles to choose from. Open Beta between September 22-25, 2021. Early access is available on September 22-23, 2021, 07:00 UTC, for all players who pre-order the game or are current EA Play members. Preload is available on Sept 21, 2021, 06:00 UTC.”
Origin API screenshot as proof:
Again, I want to reiterate that the September 20 and September 23 dates are most likely ones that were originally targeted by DICE before the game got delayed. So don’t expect the beta to be playable this coming Thursday. Mind, I wouldn’t say no, and would gladly be wrong if EA surprises us with a beta this week, but I don’t see it happening given DICE themselves has said that they will talk more about the beta later this month. Key word here is “talk” and not release, or let people play the beta.
