Good newsIf you have Game Pass for PC, you can get early access to the beta on October 6 through EA Play. Note that in the tweet below it mentions Ultimate, but only console owners need an Ultimate subscription to get EA Play.
It will be available through all platforms (Origin, EA Desktop, Steam, Epic). The Game Pass app launches EA Desktop, so that is where you'll get it if you use your Game Pass subscription. 3rd party sellers should send you a pre-order key that gives you access to the beta. If you didn't get one you would have to contact the place you preordered the game from.Where does the beta download, Origin, or Origin & Steam?
I assume 3rd party pre-orders (GMG, etc.) don't get early access?
If they actually stick to it they'll end up banning 95% of their player base, I thinkwe’re strengthening our commitment to ensuring Battlefield remains a welcoming experience that encourages Positive Play...as part of this commitment, we wanted to update you on the initiatives that we’re developing to ensure our community remains a positive space
Here's the full list of reportable behaviors in Battlefield 2042:
-Abusive Text Chat
-Abusive Voice Chat
-Offensive Player Name
- An in-game text profanity filter will always be active.
Future Battlefield players for EA DiceWell that is disappointing. Instead we'll see text full of "****" now. I know in CoD it filters non-offensive words to often.
And da fuq (getting in the habit to get around censored chat) does this have to do with Battlefield?

Giving birth? Always nice to know the person who delivers your baby has a rifle and grenades slung up and ready. Sorry, that is just some next level PR cringe.
The irony is unreal
the way dice sees it they are censoring chat to keep people positive toward each other. there's no way for dice to know if someone says in chat "we're getting our ass kicked" versus, "your score sucks ass". if a grenade is thrown at your feet and your character is like oh fuck you're not going to really be offended by that unless you're offended by swearing in general. which if you are you wouldn't have bought the game due to the ESRB rating. they dont want people bitching at each other basically.Yup, amazes me how dice think thats fine yet the chat blocks any attempt at a swear word.

I've seen all kinds of stuff in bf5 chat. now that we have custom portal servers, communitys might develop so chat may be more about saying hi to people you recognize. like it was in the old days.Shit talking has been part and parcel of online gaming for years, they would be as well disabling text chat if this is the direction theyre going. Not like anything constructive comes through it anyway besides tards typing "ez" at every opportunity.
This is the result of hiring the same purple haired folks that thought minority female Nazis were acceptable. "Yes, we want to break the glass ceiling and allow anyone to be a Nazi! Equality!"Yup, amazes me how dice think thats fine yet the chat blocks any attempt at a swear word. We're allowed to hear characters randomly say it but god forbid someone types it!
In the old days you could write anything, and if the other person didn't like it they could join another server...or God forbid they could rent their own server and enforce their own censorship. And if people didn't like that new server's censorship they could go back to other servers where they were more comfortable.I've seen all kinds of stuff in bf5 chat. now that we have custom portal servers, communitys might develop so chat may be more about saying hi to people you recognize. like it was in the old days.
I just don't understand murder porn shows like The Walking Dead having zero "curse words" and games depicting the shooting and stabbing of women taking similar actions. Apparently depictions of murder and being able to do so in a simulation is far more palatable than saying "fuck".I assume they'll remove it from the game voice acting as well. It isn't necessary but it fits as long as it isn't excessive. BF3/4 did it right. It is a game that is rated M, I expect some swearing. I don't mind people using it in chat. Yes insulting people over chat is fine, typically nothing comes of it.
true but the argument is people don't want to be censored. and for people who don't want to see the chat they can hide it, I think in bf5 you can hide it with the H key. I don't really care in this case but I lean toward not letting others decide what I see and hear in life.I say WGA* about text chat curse words being ******* censored. Most of it - 95% is bitching and whining by bad players anyway. My patience for that is zero. And the game having voiceovers with profanity doesnt mean its hypocritical, because the voiceovers are not trying to be an energy vampire like some little shit in text chat complaining or trolling for responses.
As someone that's frittered away more hundreds of hours of precious time on BF games than is probably even healthy, I say you're better off just leaving chat box disabled - you should be too busy murdering anyway. A slow steady trickle of toxic chat over many hours can be exhausting and make you feel just angry and annoyed when you finally stop playing, and without even realizing why. Especially if you're prone to getting sucked in to flame wars.
This. Removing community servers was the most self destructive thing they could have done. Ironically because of people who didn't like following rules and thought it unfair that some other player could kick or ban therm for being a shithead.
If you're just opting out because of the published requirements you just may be the drunk one. From what I gather you just need at least a 4 thread CPU made in the last 7 years. A CPU made within the last 7 years is always a good general guideline to follow.Might be the first battlefield I opt out of since hardline. Those cpu requirements seem drunk.
BF has greatly benefited from 8 threads for a while. My 1080ti choked with BF1 until I stepped up from 4/4.If you're just opting out because of the published requirements you just may be the drunk one.
