Publisher Electronic Arts have already announced that the final version of the game will hit app stores sometime in 2022. Yet some gamers won’t have to wait that long to get their hands on a copy of Battlefield mobile on Android devices.
The Battlefield Mobile Beta
EA plans to begin Beta testing for players living in Indonesia and the Philippines this fall with further regions being added during the beta rollout.
For gamers not living in Indonesia and the Philippines don’t lose hope. According to details by EA, the initial Beta test will only have a single playable map called Grand Bazaar:

Free To Play?
Battlefield Mobile will be a free-to-play game and will follow familiar gameplay that Battlefield players have come to love:
For those of you who aren’t aware of the Battlefield format. Including ground, vehicle, air, and boat combat. This blend of warfare is the classic Battlefield experience.
From what is known so far, EA will bring the popular conquest game mode. This involves two teams fighting over capture points. If one team has control of more capture points than the other the team bleeds tickets. Tickets are also lost when players or vehicles are destroyed for that team. Once a team has zero tickets, the other team wins.
EA will also bring back the classic class system in Battlefield mobile, so you can expect to see the familiar Assault, Support, Medic, and Recon skills.
Cross-Play With Console & PC?
The original post by EA community manager @EA_Cade also mentions that they won’t support any cross-play with consoles or PC:
The game studio working on Battlefield mobile is called Industrial Toys and is led by Alex Seropian. He was one of the original founders of Bungie Studios, the people behind Halo.
If you are the lucky people living in Indonesia or the Philippines, you can go now to the play store to pre-register for the beta test. Once the beta test goes live and you are selected, you can play the beta test of Battlefield mobile.
