Battlefield 2042 arrives on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One on October 22nd this year. Pre-orders are now live for standard, gold, and unlimited editions of the game from select retailers.

As well as early access to the game’s beta, pre-ordering the game will bag you these exclusive pre-order bonuses: the Baku ABC-90 takedown knife, Mr Chompy epic weapon charm, landfall player card background, and an old guard tag.

While the latest instalment in the Battlefield series won’t launch with a single-player campaign, Battlefield 2042’s multiplayer sounds like its best yet, especially its All-Out-Warfare mode. If you’re as excited as we are, make sure you grab the game ahead of its release from one of the pre-order links below.

If you wanna play Battlefield 2042 ahead of its official release date, the Gold Edition of the game gets your early access (to the full Battlefield experience) and a year-one DLC pass (four new specialists, four battle passes, three epic skin bundles). The Gold Edition for consoles includes next-gen upgrades if you purchase on PS4 or Xbox One. You’ll get the early pre-order bonuses too.

How to access Battlefield 2042 early

All pre-orders of Battlefield 2042 include early access to the game’s closed beta, the date of which is yet to be announced. You’ll also get full access to the game a week early ahead of its release on October 22nd.

EA and Dice have also confirmed a playable alpha test for Battlefield 2042 will go live in July. There’s no way to sign up for the alpha test – you’ll just have to hope that EA sends you an invitation code.

We’ll update this page if there are any changes in price. For now, though, we’d recommend giving the Jelly Deals Twitter a follow if you like saving big on the latest games. This year’s Amazon Prime Day starts 21st June, and we’ll be posting all of the best Prime Day deals here and on Twitter.
