Battlefield 2042 Hosting Free Weekend Next Month

Developers of DICE’s online shooter Battlefield 2042 have announced in a video update that the game will have a free weekend for players across all platforms in December. Days after EA announced that Battlefield 2042 would be available on Xbox Game Pass and EA Play as part of the upcoming Season 3: Escalation, the company announced a free weekend for the game.

Developed by DICE and continuing the story begun in 2002 with the PC classic Battlefield 1942, Battlefield 2042 is the newest instalment in the long-running Battlefield series. In an effort to get back to the series’ multiplayer roots, publisher EA left the single-player campaign mode out of Battlefield 2042. Battlefield 2042’s attempt to unseat genre heavyweights like Activision’s Call of Duty series has been met with a barrage of criticism from nearly the instant it was announced, and this problem was not helped by a launch plagued with serious bugs.

 

DICE has announced that players on all platforms will be able to give Battlefield 2042 a try for free during a series of free weekends beginning in December in anticipation of the launch of Season 3: Escalation. The announcement was made in a new video released by the Battlefield 2042 development team discussing updates to the game. Play the game for free on the weekends of December 1–4 and December 1–5 for Xbox and PC players, and December 16–23 for PlayStation players. The free weekends are an effort to attract new players to the critically underpopulated online shooter, with Battlefield 1 from 2016 drawing more players than Battlefield 2042 did on a recent weekend.

Players on the fence about purchasing Battlefield 2042 may be swayed by a free weekend across all platforms, even though a 10-hour demo is already available to those with Xbox Game Pass or EA Play. Since Battlefield 2042’s release in 2021, EA and DICE have been working tirelessly to address player complaints, and the update video showcases the many changes that have been made to the game. While updates that fix bugs and add new content are always welcome, it may take more than just new maps and persistent servers to win over sceptics of Battlefield 2042.

Battlefield 2042’s free weekend gives players who are on the fence about purchasing the game a chance to find out if the game’s large-scale, vehicle-heavy combat is worth it. Despite its controversies over major bugs and gameplay choices, Battlefield 2042 still has a lot to offer multiplayer shooter fans. Fans of the series can take heart from DICE’s commitment to patching the game regularly; they believe Battlefield 2042 will eventually live up to the standards set by its forerunners.
