How to Download Battlefield 2042 for Free with EA Play Early Access | PC, PlayStation, Xbox

Battlefield 2042’s standard edition will be launching worldwide on November 19, however, you can play the game a week earlier if you play your cards right. While Gold and Ultimate edition owners will be receiving the complete game a week earlier than people hosting the Standard edition, EA Play is granting players early access without spending a fortune.

EA Play is once again providing players with a couple of hours of gameplay before the official launch of the Standard edition. You will have complete access to the game’s content, weapons, maps, and online modes. Even more, any progress made during your early-access adventures will be carried over to the proper version as well. So, here is how you can get Battlefield 2042 for free.
