Battlefield Mobile is already on Google Play Store, beta launching this fall
Battlefield Mobile has shown up in the Google Play Store, revealing a ton of new information about the Industrial Toys-developed game.
According to the game’s listing, Battlefield Mobile features a modern military setting with “large-scale environmental destruction,” vehicles like tanks and ATVs, and “authentic weapons and game-changing gadgets.” The description also states that players will battle “in land, sea and air,” though it’s unclear if vehicles like helicopters, jets, and attack boats will be available.
As far as infantry is concerned, Battlefield Mobile will include four classes: Assault, Medic, Recon, and Support. These four classes have featured in the last two mainline Battlefield entries, but it’s the first time we’re seeing them divvied up this way in a modern-setting Battlefield game.
Battlefield Mobile will also offer some sort of progression system, as weapons, gadgets, and classes can be personalized and updated. There will also be unique “war heroes” that players can unlock—most likely by paying for them, since Battlefield Mobile is free to play.
Publisher Electronic Arts also gave some information about the game’s upcoming beta tests. According to a forum post from one of EA’s community managers, the game will first launch as “a series of smaller play tests in Indonesia and the Philippines.” It will only be playable on “devices running Android 7.0 and up” at first, though Industrial Toys is looking to “expand the size of these tests [and] add new regions.”
It looks like the technical test will be somewhat limited. The only playable map is Battlefield 3‘s Grand Bazaar, and the only playable mode is Conquest. Any progress made during these beta tests will be wiped before the full game launches in 2022.
Meanwhile, Battlefield 2042 is scheduled to launch on October 22nd for Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The open beta for that game is rumored to start on September 22nd.
