Inspired by the traditional four Battlefield classes, Specialists will be equipped with their unique Specialist Trait and Specialty and fully customizable gear.
The specialists feature explored in the latest gameplay trailer, which you can see below, which highlights Webster Mackay, who can use a grappling hook, Wikus ‘Caspter’ Van Daele, who is equipped with a recon drone, and Pyotr ‘Boris’ Guskovsky, who can create a sentry gun (automatic control weapon).
According to several leaks from credible sources (Tom Henderson and Jeff Grubb), the beta phase for Battlefield 2042 will kick off on September 22.
Electronic Arts have already mentioned that the open public beta would start sometime in September 2021, but it remains without an official date. EA Play members and pre-booked consumers will receive early access to the open beta regardless of the game version.
The base edition of Battlefield 2042 will be released on October 22 for $59.99 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC, and $69.99 for Xbox Series X/S and PS5.
However, those interested in pre-booking the Gold Edition can do it for $89.99 for PC and $99.99 for consoles. The Ultimate Edition will cost $109.99 for PC and $119.99 for consoles, earning you the opportunity to get early access starting October 15.
