Battlefield 2042’s official release is right around the corner, and EA is currently conducting a closed technical test on the game to get it ready for launch. Like other games, early participation of Battlefield 2042 comes with a non-disclosure agreement, and EA is not taking this contract lightly.
“You’re under NDA for this playtest, so videos, screenshots, and streaming from this playtest [will] result in strikes on your channels,” EA’s lead community manager, Adam Freeman, tweeted. “Break the rules, expect to lose access to both the Technical Playtest, future EA Tests, and potentially access to 2042 itself when it releases.”

We’ve already removed plenty of people from the Playtest in these past 48 hours, and they won’t be able to play this weekend. pic.twitter.com/EIWaIHIMT2
EA has taken swift action against any leaks of Battlefield 2042, stomping out all footage that appears online. They are very serious about not wanting Battlefield 2042 being seen before they’re ready.
Right after the technical test began, people started posting gameplay footage online, which included glitches and bugs you’d expect from and early piece of the game. Those who didn’t take the NDA seriously might be in for a surprise if EA decides to revoke access to the game on launch day.
Battlefield 2042’s open beta starts in September, and anyone who preorders a copy of the game will get early access to it.
