Test phases before the release of a game are mostly subject to an NDA with a duty of confidentiality and EA immediately made it clear that violations of this will not be tolerated.
Much to the delight of approved players, Battlefield 2042 is slowly but surely entering the beta phase, starting with an ongoing technical preview. Such events always include an NDA that prohibits participants from distributing material from the test phase. Nonetheless, the first videos and screenshots from the preview quickly appeared on the web.
EA immediately made it clear that such behavior will not be tolerated, but punished severely. Any form of streaming or the publication of videos and screenshots would ensure that the person concerned is not only thrown out of the test phase, but can also get a lifelong ban on Battlefield 2042 as well as future EA play tests.
Such NDAs are nothing unusual in test phases, but at least it seems that not every participant has read the corresponding text. In a statement on Twitter, EA confirmed that numerous players had already been removed from the test phase over the weekend.
