Battlefield 2042 is beginning its beta tomorrow for those with Early Access, letting players get a first glimpse into one of the maps and modes coming to the upcoming first-person shooter. With so much about the game to be excited about, this first taste should not only help iron out bugs but should help you judge if a pre-order or purchase is right for you. If you’re like me though and having pretty bad internet consistently, then preloading is a dream come true. If you’re looking to do so, then you’ve come to the right place. Here’s how you can preload the Battlefield 2042 beta on every platform!
How to Preload the Battlefield 2042 Beta on Every Platform
Doing so on PC is super easy thanks to Steam. Simply search up Battlefield 2042 on Steam and request access to the Open Beta. From there, the beta will appear in your library and you’ll be able to preload the game.
This works similarly to the PC platform, but you’ll want to head to the Xbox Store. From here, search up the Battlefield 2042 Open Beta and press Get. This should begin the download but if it doesn’t, simply check your game library and it should be present.
Again, this is quite straightforward, simply search up the Battlefield 2042 Open Beta on the PlayStation Store and you should be able to download it straight from there. If it doesn’t automatically start, check the library.
Once you have that setup, simply wait for the download and, once the beta is available for you, you’ll be free to jump in. Keep in mind that you’re looking at a 20GB update, so getting this preloaded can be quite important with some internet setups. It’s also important to note that preloading the Battlefield 2042 open beta does not grant instant access to the early beta. You’ll need to pre-order to get that.
All in all, I hope this guide helped you to preload the Battlefield 2042 open beta. If it did, be sure to let us know in the comments. As well, share it around so it can help others.
Battlefield 2042 will release on November 19 for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S.
