DICE, as the leader of the conglomeration of studios working on Battlefield 2042, will be holding technical playtests next week for Battlefield 2042 between the 12th and 15th of August. 

The technical playtests, first scheduled to take place in July before being delayed, will only accommodate “a few thousand participants” to test out “new features and functionality that we’re building from the ground up for Battlefield 2042,” Daniel Berlin, Senior Design Director at DICE, revealed in a Battlefield Briefing in July. 

According to VGC, who have been privy to some of the email invites which EA has already distributed, these technical tests are set to last for twenty-four hours in total, split across six sessions over the three days of testing. 

You can still register for EA Playtesting if you want the chance to play Battlefield 2042 early ahead of its open beta, which is currently scheduled for September, however, signing up for playtesting will not guarantee access. 

The minimum and recommended PC system specifications were also revealed as part of the invite emails according to VGC, which are as follows:
