Battlefield 2042 Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, EA Play

There have been rumours and speculation doing the rounds that Battlefield 2042 could be a day one Xbox Game Pass addition, but at the very least, the game will be getting a free 10-hour trial with Game Pass Ultimate as part of EA Play.

As highlighted by EA, members to the 'Play' service will get a range of benefits in addition to the trial, including early access to the Open Beta later this year, and the standard 10% discount off pre-ordering the game on the Xbox Store.

Note that the trial also begins on October 15, which is an entire week before the standard version of the game launches on October 22, so you'll be getting access to the trial alongside players who have bought the 'Gold Edition'.

Don't forget that we'll be getting the full gameplay reveal for Battlefield 2042 this Sunday, June 13, and it's been confirmed that it'll be part of Xbox and Bethesda's mammoth E3 2021 showcase at 6pm BST.
