Battlefield 2042 may not release until November 19th, but that doesn’t mean fans will have to wait over a month to play this sequel to the iconic series. Developer DICE opens the gates a little earlier and lets players test one of the biggest shooters of the year during this week’s Open Beta. After playing the game at a recent press event, we can confirm that Battlefield 2042 is wild. We surfed a huge tornado, used a grappling hook to clear a squad on a rooftop, and finally left my preview to play the open beta.
Before the fun begins for the rest of the public, the only Alex Van Aken had the chance to preview the beta early and has some fresh impressions for you in this episode of New Gameplay Today. The Video Editor Extraordinaire takes the opportunity to show off his impressive sniper skills while explaining how each class works and its highlights during his time with the multiplayer experience. But then Van Aken does what we normally couldn’t do on an episode of NGT. He steps aside and lets the gameplay speak for itself. Van Aken bows to the competition with the exciting grappling hook, commits vehicle destruction and even finds out how much fun it can be to get into the heart of a tornado.
If you enjoyed the video and are looking forward to the upcoming release of Battlefield 2042 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, be sure to check out the Open Beta details and see how Battlefield Portal works.
