Warning against players leaking gameplay videos 

Eurogamers reported that short clips of Battlefield 2042 have started to pop up on Youtube after EA released their beta version of the game. It was certain that some of the testers were releasing this footage from their accounts.  After taking down these videos, the Lead community manager at Electronic Arts, Adam Freeman shared a warning trying to keep the Battlefield 2042 gameplay away from the community. Talking about leaking the footage online, Adam Freeman wrote that they have already started rolling out the codes for Xbox and sharing them with a friend will not work. He wrote, “You also don’t want to share your account information with folks either, that’s going to end badly for you. Super badly.” He added that the players are under NDA for this playtest, so video screenshots and streaming from this playtest results in strikes on their channel. “Break the rule, expect to lose excess to both the technical preview, future EA test and potentially access to 2042 itself when it's released,” he said.
