For the past few months, we’ve known that Electronic Arts is working on a standalone mobile version of its popular Battlefield games, which it plans to release in 2022. This week, the publisher provided additional information about the upcoming title.
The first phase of Battlefield Mobile beta testing will take place this fall with “a series of smaller playtests” involving players in Indonesia and the Philippines who own Android smartphones and tablets. While testing continues, the company stated on its community website that it plans to “increase the size of these tests” as well as “add new regions.”
A single map called Grand Bazaar and the franchise’s signature Conquest game mode will be available for testing during the initial beta period. EA has promised to share more information about other maps and modes as the release date for Battlefield Mobile, which is set for 2022, approaches. As a result of these developments, Capcom has confirmed that the game will be a free-to-play title that will only include cosmetic items. Some of these will be earned through optional seasonal battle passes, which you can purchase. Because it is “being built specifically for mobile,” Battlefield Mobile will not support crossplay between any of the Battlefield franchise’s console or PC versions, according to DICE.
It is possible to pre-register on the Google Play Store if you are from Indonesia or the Philippines in order to receive more information about the upcoming beta tests.
