The open beta for Battlefield 2042 is imminent so here are the system requirements for the game - before you start holding your breath, they're actually alright.
Arriving for PC, last-gen and new-gen consoles on October 22nd, Battlefield 2042 chops and changes the standard for the series. Firstly, it doesn't offer a single-player campaign because developer DICE wanted to "lean into what it does best." However, those who want to fly solo won't be left by the wayside.
A single-player mode is possible as there are matches that can be populated with bots, and for the players who hanker after a story to follow, that will come in the game's battle pass. The setting itself is a transformed Earth after extreme weather events and ensuing resource conflicts devolve the world's powers into two remaining titans - the United States and Russia.

The beta is of course open to all platforms, however, if you are playing on Xbox then an Xbox Live Gold subscription is needed to hop online. Plus, it's worth noting that progress in the beta will not carry over to launch.
