Battlefield 2042 is getting a 10-hour trial exclusively for certain premium gamers starting Nov. 12. This trial offers the chance to try out the game for a substantial amount of time before committing to a purchase, making it particularly useful for anyone skeptical of the financial commitment involved in buying a AAA game at full price. Here's what you need to know about the trial, and how you can get in on the action.

How to Play Battlefield 2042 10-Hour Trial

To get access to the Battlefield 2042 10-hour trial, you'll need to subscribe to one of a few different premium services. The following players get access to the trial included in their subscriptions:

  • EA Play members
  • Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members on console
  • Game Pass PC members
  • EA Play Pro members on PC

Battlefield 2042 hosted an open beta in early October, and players in that beta worried about the state of the game just a month out from release. The game itself doesn't launch until Nov. 19, so this trial will not only allow players to try it out before buying — they'll also get to play the finished game before anyone else does, seeing for themselves whether or not the post-beta improvements are substantial enough to merit a purchase.
