EA and DICE have sent out email invites confirming that Battlefield 2042’s technical playtest will commence next week. From August 12 to August 15, select EA playtesters will be able to enjoy a limited portion of the game to help DICE test out some of the multiplayer-only FPS’s core features, such as cross-play functionality (PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5 players will be able to compete against one another during the test). PC users can find the minimum and recommend system requirements below. Unlike recent tests such as Halo Infinite’s technical multiplayer preview, Battlefield 2042’s technical playtest is under a strict NDA, which means that any footage that makes it onto the web will likely be taken down. Those who aren’t selected for the technical playtest will be able to check out Battlefield 2042 before its official release as part of an open beta.

Minimum specs:

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10
  • Processor (AMD): AMD FX-8350
  • Processor (Intel): Core i5 6600K
  • Memory: 8GB
  • Video Memory: 4GB
  • Graphics card (AMD): AMD Radeon RX 560
  • Graphics card (NVIDIA): Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti
  • DirectX: 12
  • Online Connection Requirements: 512 KBPS or faster Internet connection

Recommended specs:

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10
  • Processor (AMD): AMD Ryzen 5 3600
  • Processor (Intel): Intel Core i7 4790
  • Memory: 16GB
  • Video Memory: 8GB
  • Graphics card (AMD): Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060
  • Graphics card (NVIDIA): AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT
  • DirectX: 12

[…] a few thousand participants will join us to help us test some of our new features and functionality that we’re building from the ground up for Battlefield 2042. Do keep in mind that the Technical Playtest is purposefully not intended to be the full experience you will see in the Open Beta, or at launch. It is a development-led environment with only a subset of features, focused on technical performance.
