For everyone wondering, from what I know, the Beta is available to those that have EA Play as well. The subscription is very cheap, like 5$ a month.

ID: hfeo1w8

Isn’t there a trial for $1 as well?

Either way, pay $5 for one month sub and you get like $7-$8 off the game lol.

ID: hffy2fn

There was a $1 discount for a month in Sept but it has already been expired since 30th. I am one of the lucky ones that manage to buy a discount.

ID: hffk208

what if you cancel EA Play, do you still keep the game at the same price?

ID: hfe0vvh


ID: hfeclpg

you can cancel the auto-renew straight away and still keep the subscription.

ID: hfe7g6h

Will we have the option to purchase from Ps store tomorrow? Wondering if it will show up under EA play games or something like that

ID: hfe6vco

Correct, for EA play and Xbox game pass according to this article

ID: hferag3

Gamepass works then? I wasn't sure if it worked.

ID: hffmq8m

Thanks so much! Didn't know that

ID: hfe0hs8

I wonder if that means you can play it if you have game pass as well.

ID: hfe101d

I think so, yes. Give it a try!

So if I did not pre-order or do not have any subscription to EA Play etc, I can still play the beta but only on the 8th-9th for PS5?

ID: hfduy92


ID: hfdvawi

Nice, thanks! I almost preordered not knowing that, I wouldn't even have time to play till Friday anyway.

Pre-ordered from Best Buy in June and still don’t have my code…

ID: hff001r

Spoke with support and they said orders were pending but they should open up tonight with codes being sent out via e-mail within the next few days presumably.

ID: hff630x

Thanks for the info

ID: hfepu0f

Yeah likewise, do we need to contact Best Buy or Dice for our code?

5 : Anonymous2021/10/04 17:53 ID: hfdltyy

Man I really hate all this preorder cookies bs. If the game is good it will sell. Just let people test it out. Whatever!

I can’t wait for Sony to have free time trials/demos for every game.

ID: hfdnhl6

Do what I’ll do. Preorder on Amazon, get code, cancel preorder. EZ

ID: hff1kgj

that what i did. just got the email with the code for the beta so i can cancel my preorder now.

ID: hfdpg3v

They obvious know people are jumping through these loops. It’s just dumb how they keep milking this. Well luckily I don’t fall for this stuff. Not even preorder bonus stuff. When I see this it actually makes me wary. It’s not like a digital download is going to run out on release date. Not saying all preorder bonuses are a catch. Some could be cool as a collectible if you care enough for that game, I guess. Just kind of hate how this is becoming the norm.

ID: hfei2t8

I'd hold my breath until sony makes the time limit for their demos only go down while playing. Apparently the clock starts ticking once you click download so if the game takes to long or if you can't be around to play for the 5 hours you're SOL

ID: hfewqn4

Still better than nothing. We used to get demos all the time in the past. Glad to see this coming back.

ID: hffl2e7

It’s open Beta the 8th-9th I believe

ID: hfeu56f

I can’t wait for Sony to have free time trials/demos for every game.

My guy you must be pretty delusional if you think they'll do it for every game lol.

6 : Anonymous2021/10/04 19:14 ID: hfdyxod

I know everyone says not to but I'm damn near on my knees waiting for this game to come out. I pre-ordered on a whim and I will take whatever they give me. I've been waiting for a new modern battlefield game and so far things have been looking pretty good for this one. Can't wait for Wednesday to get here.

ID: hfhjbai

I was super hyped until I bought Insurgency: Sandstorm and then quickly realized that Sandstorm was, in fact, the game I've been waiting for.

The beta will have to really impress me, other otherwise I'm waiting for sale, at best.

ID: hfhu86z

Yeah insurgency is dope as hell and outdoes bf and cod in alot of ways

7 : Anonymous2021/10/04 20:18 ID: hfe9gvx

Amazon sucks always takes their sweet time sending the code. Buy from Best Buy. Code will be in your inbox in 10 min 🙂

8 : Anonymous2021/10/05 02:31 ID: hffmv8o

I'm there!!!! See the rest of ya online. When you see SharkyMayhem, say "hi"

9 : Anonymous2021/10/04 18:27 ID: hfdraln

I pre-ordered digital version on my ps5 2 weeks ago. Does anybody know how codes will be sent out if purchased this way? No emails from Sony as of now and I do not see any beta downloads.

ID: hfdyelr

Pre ordering through ps store doesn't need codes. Either the game itself or a beta version will be available for you to download similar how it worked for cod vanguard

10 : Anonymous2021/10/04 17:51 ID: hfdlhy4

Good. Looking forward to it.

11 : Anonymous2021/10/04 20:55 ID: hfefjli

I'll probably end up buying this game when it launches. No pre-orders from this guy.

ID: hfffcin

so why not just preorder and get early access…

12 : Anonymous2021/10/04 18:01 ID: hfdn09c

I still haven’t gotten my early access beta code from Amazon. I’m gonna cancel the preorder after the beta anyway but still I want the code lmao

13 : Anonymous2021/10/04 17:50 ID: hfdl918

Lol the whole beta period ends just in time for the weekend.

ID: hfdlw1y

If you count Sunday as "just in time for the weekend", sure. You can still play on Friday and Saturday.

ID: hfdmkkv

The open beta is Friday and Saturday though?

ID: hfe7m12


ID: hfflhsn

They’re gonna extend it like everyone else does

14 : Anonymous2021/10/04 19:16 ID: hfdz5vy

Can't wait to play!

Dont get me wrong I like playing SOCOM online but itll be nice to have a high resolution modern tactical shooter again without clown costumes.

For anyone missing SOCOM and wanting to play until battlefield comes out we still have a small community playing. Dont need a ps2 or the game to play. Always looking for new faces!

Amazing post and brought back some memories!

I pre ordered at GameStop and didn’t get a code on my receipt. So rip me

16 : Anonymous2021/10/04 18:19 ID: hfdpvev

I got my code from Amazon a week and a half ago, I redeemed the code and everything, but it does not appear in my "Your Collection" tab (PS5). Is that normal, and will it appear once the preload period starts?

ID: hfdw6xa

Same here on PC.

Tried redeeming the code again, thinking maybe it didn’t go through, but it tells me that the code is already been used.

Looks like it’ll only appear when the pre-load goes live.

ID: hfdysz0

The same thing happened with Back for blood
