2021 was an exciting year for mobile gamers as they witnessed the announcement of PUBG: New State, Apex Legends Mobile, Valorant Mobile, Battlegrounds Mobile India, and many other exciting games. Once again, it’s time for yet another gigantic launch as the hugely successful first-person shooter title, Battlefield, steps into the world of mobile gaming.
DICE, the developers behind Battlefield Mobile, initially confirmed back in April that a handheld version of their insanely popular FPS title was in development. Finally, after a few months of waiting, a listing for Battlefield Mobile has appeared on the Google Play Store.
However, like all of the other online mobile titles, Battlefield Mobile will undergo closed beta testing, also known as the Early Play Test. In fact, the pre-registration for beta testing has also gone live, and Android users can now register for the Early Play Test. EA has also unveiled its take on some of the FAQs that reveal lots about the upcoming release. So without further ado, let’s a look at the complete details of the Battlefield Mobile.
Battlefield Mobile Release Date
Battlefield Mobile is globally releasing in the year 2022 for all smartphones and tablets, confirms the General Manager of DICE. Although the exact launch date of the game is still unknown, players may expect its global release in the first quarter (Q1) of 2022.
Oskar Gabrielson, the General Manager of DICE, said in an official statement:
He also confirmed that the game is being developed by Industrial Toys, which is managed by Alex Seropian. Seropian is one of the original co-founders of Bungie, creators of the Halo franchise.
When will Battlefield Mobile beta testing phase begin?
The developers will be steadily rolling out Battlefield Mobile, starting with a series of smaller play tests in Indonesia and the Philippines.
The first of these begins in Autumn 2021 and will only be available on Android devices. As they continue with testing, they’ll expand the size of these tests and add new regions.
How to Pre-Register for Battlefield Mobile?

Battlefield Mobile – Features
Unlike other popular mobile releases, Battlefield Mobile will be a standalone title, meaning it’ll be a completely different game from the one available for console and PC platforms.
In the beta testing, fans will be able to play on maps like the Grand Bazaar map and the classic Battlefield game mode, Conquest. Additionally, players can also ride vehicles like tanks and ATVs.
Players can start by picking up one of the four classic classes—Assault, Support, Medic, or Recon, along with the ability to choose certain gadgets. In addition to this, they can also personalise the weapons, gadgets, and skins according to their desire.
Last but not least, Battlefield Mobile will also have a Battle Pass during the launch, featuring various collectibles, including weapon skins, character outfits, and other unlockables.

Battlefield Mobile is currently still in development and is being optimised to run on a variety of devices. However, the developers have specified the following minimum requirements to run Battlefield Mobile seamlessly:
- Android version: 7.0 and up
- RAM: 3GB or more
- CPU: TBA
