Battlefield Mobile details, supported devices and play test dates

EA /

Back in April, EA announced Battlefield Mobile. While I have some reservations about EA’s ability to successfully bring its blockbuster franchise to mobile and how all-out warfare will translate from PC and console to an on-the-go experience, some new details about the game have at least painted a clearer picture as to what we should expect.

Battlefield Mobile Gameplay

The official Google Play listing promises large-scale battles and large-scale destruction — a staple for the Battlefield franchise — along with multiple game modes and an arsenal of weaponry. There’s talk of environmental destruction, explosive spectacles, maps, modes and more. It’s everything we expect to see from a Battlefield game.

Now that EA is preparing for Play Tests, they’ve posted a FAQ that offers a bit more detail on what they’ll realistically deliver. First off, Battlefield Mobile will be free-to-play with its own Battle Passes, cosmetic items and unlockables.

Because the game is still in development, not all of the modes or features are able to be talked about right now. When the early play test launches later this year, it will only have the Grand Bazaar map (from Battlefield 3) and the classic Conquest game mode. However, it does sound like more maps and modes will be ready at launch.

Weapons, gadgets, skins and more can be personalized with cosmetics and upgraded to better match your class. Speaking of class, the four offered in the game are Assault, Support, Medic and Recon. From there, you’ll be able to customize your loadout to fit your playstyle.

Play Test Details

An Early Play Test for Battlefield Mobile will begin in “Autumn 2021” and will roll out in Indonesia and the Philippines at first. It will also only be available on Android devices.

Testing will expand to new regions eventually and when that happens, pre-register information and sign-ups will be shared. Once Battlefield Mobile does become available in your region, you’ll be able to register through your Google Play Store page.

While Battlefield Mobile is still in development and being optimized for various devices, the play test will only be available on phones running Android 7.0 and up. Again, details for supported devices at launch are still being worked out. If you do happen to get into the play test, none of your progress will carry over into the game’s official launch.

Battlefield Mobile is being developed by Industrial Toys as part of a collaborative effort with DICE.  The game will run independently from any console or PC version and is being developed specially for mobile, so it will not feature cross-play with any console or PC games in the franchise.
