Footage from Battlefield Mobile seems to have leaked online after playtesting for the game began in Southeast Asia.
As shown on MP1ST, four different clips show off a range of combat as well as loadout customization options, weapon progression, and more. The captured gameplay, which is seemingly taken from an alpha build of the Battlefield Mobile, shows the game running at medium specs. During the action, players can be seen driving tanks, quad bikes, and moving on foot as they attempt to capture various objectives across the map. It’s, you know, Battlefield!
Set in a modern or near-future setting, the game will look familiar to fans of the series, and gun customization also appears to be a key feature, with weapon specialization options and a limited number of weapon attachments shown off in the clips.

Despite sharing similarities with Battlefield’s flagship series, earlier this year EA General Manager Oskar Gabrielson was keen to talk about the game in its own right. “Make no mistake, this is a standalone game,” Gabrielson said in a blog post. “A completely different game from the one we’re making for console and PC, designed specifically for the mobile platform.”
News of the leaked footage may not come as too much of a surprise to Battlefield fans. Earlier this month, EA announced that it was rolling out Android-only play tests for the game across fall in Indonesia and the Philippines. The publisher added at the time that more regions would join the play testing list as it continued.
Battlefield Mobile has not yet received an official release date, but the game is slated to launch in 2022. At release, it will be a free-to-play title with cosmetic-only items available for purchase in-game.
While Battlefield Mobile continues to work towards its launch next year, EA recently announced that Battlefield 2042 would be remaining in development for a little while longer. While counting down to 2042’s new November release date, make sure to check out the rumored Battlefield 2042 Hazard Zone game mode detailed in a recent datamine.
