If you've pre-ordered the Gold Edition or Ultimate Edition version of Battlefield 2042, then you'll get Early Access into the game and can enjoy it on November 12. The full release is a week later on November 19, so anyone that ordered the Gold or Ultimate Edition of the game can pre-load Battlefield 2042.

I've just finished pre-loading Battlefield 2042 Ultimate Edition on Steam, but we're still over 24 hours away from the PC Early Access launch at the time of writing. It all kicks off on November 12 @ 00:00 PST. Not only that, but there's also a 10-hour trial of Battlefield 2042 if you're an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate or EA Play subscriber.

Battlefield 2042 Gold Edition includes additional cosmetics for the game, as well as the Year 1 Pass. The most expensive version of the game is the Ultimate Edition, which has everything that the Gold Edition of Battlefield 2042 comes with and then adds in the Midnight Bundle, a digital artbook, and a soundtrack.
