In what could be something, or a whole lot of nothing, it looks like EA has removed the Battlefield 2042 early access beta as one of the PS4 version’s perks for pre-ordering the game, which could mean that Battlefield 2042 PS4 early access beta isn’t happening, or any kind of beta (not just early access) isn’t happening, or this is an error on Sony or EA’s part.

Interestingly enough, the PS5 version still includes the early access perk for pre-ordering. Here are the screenshots we took of both versions.
You can check it out for yourself by going to the PlayStation Store link for Battlefield 2042.
Could this mean that the PS4 version won’t be getting the beta? We honestly can’t say for certain now. It is worth pointing out though that reliable PlayStation data scraper PlayStation Sizes has pointed out that there has been no Battlefield 2042 beta client uploaded on PSN (but the PS5 version has been uploaded for quite some time now).

Again, this is not evidence that the PS4 version won’t be getting a beta. We have reached out to EA, and will upload the post if we get a response back.

In other BF2042 beta news, the PC game client for the beta has recently been uploaded to EA’s Origin API on PC! There is no official news on when we’ll be getting the beta, though EA has said that we should hear something about it later this month.
Battlefield 2042 will be released this November 19 on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
Update: DICE Community Manager Adam Freeman has confirmed that this a website error, and there has been no changes in the pre-order bonuses for the game,
This was a simple store front error that incorrectly listed the pre-order offer for PS4. It's being updated now and you'll see the correct details shortly.
To confirm: there have been no changes to the pre-order incentives for Battlefield 2042. https://t.co/2BYSV35d9i
