Battlefield 2042 PC Requirements, Technical Playtest Dates Revealed

With the release of Battlefield 2042 just two short months away, information about the upcoming first-person shooter has begun to release in earnest from developer DICE. The EA-owned studio recently revealed the minimum and recommended system requirements for the PC version of the game, while also announcing the title’s first technical playtest.

As reported by VideoGameChronicle, the first technical playtest for Battlefield 2042 kicks off from August 12 to August 15. The technical playtest will be comprised of six sessions in total: five that will run for three hours, and the sixth and final test running for nine hours. DICE’s original plan was to conduct a playtest back in July, though this was pushed back in order to allow the studio more time to implement cross-play. Only a “few thousand participants” will be able to join the playtest, so the odds aren’t particularly in anyone’s favor. Still, those looking to register for it can do so right here.
