    I read somewhere that the beta isn't crossplay, I'll see if I can find it again.

    Yes there is crossplay. However, you cannot party up with friends on other platforms.

    Ah rightio - I swear I saw someone posted an Nvidia screenshot with the BF2042 image in the installer for Nvidia - but that could be the 472.12 drivers. AMD definitely released a new one last night.

    That's shitty.. gotta pre-order to test it? No thanks.

    Look how dead BF1 and BF5 were not long after launch, only to be slightly revived when they gave away free keys...

    Only for early access, everyone has access from 8th-10th. I won't have a lot of time on the weekend but have preloaded it to have a play around and see if I like the direction or not.

    Yeah this is the big one. When they came out swinging at the start saying that the game was incredible, it was ahead of schedule, we have all these amazing studios working on it etc. That made me hyped.
    But the delayed launch, delayed beta, reports of performance issues, limited marketing/PR from DICE has me concerned. By now in the release cycle for previous BF titles, we had unscripted gameplay, more trailers, more in-depth look at the maps etc. We are still very much in the dark about a lot of things for BF2042.

    I guess that's why there's so much resting on this beta...

    Played 5 mins while daughter brushed her teeth haha.
    Performance seems good - but does give my 6800xt a run for it’s money. Managing 65-75fps on high at 1440p. Most demanding game I’ve thrown at my 6800xt. Will try more later. Couldn’t see DLSS or FSR in the options, unless I missed something?

    yeah I tried at 5pm. Couldn’t get in. Tried again at 6ish. Took a few goes and got in. Servers are getting hammered. I’ve heard turning off cross play helps - as there definitely aren’t as many pc players as console.

    Okay. It looks amazing.

    No server browser is a joke. I got put into a server with me and one human on the other side.

    The bots are retarded. Better off without them.

    Added my Early access code to origin and nothing happened, tried it again and it gives me an error saying its already redeemed.
    Cant see it anywhere in my game library, good start...

    Go to the Battlefield 2042 store page in Origin and click 'Try it First'. That should add it to your library.
