DICE and Electronic Arts follow advancing details of Battlefield 2042 prior to its launch on October 22. On this occasion they confirmed what was already an open secret: the title will have cross-play, which will allow to unite the communities of different platforms in the same battle. So that, Battlefield 2042 follow in the footsteps of many other titles that have chosen to offer crossover play in multiplayer variants.
Now, there are a couple of important points to keep in mind. The crossplay of Battlefield 2042 it will work according to the generation of consoles in which you are. As expected, it will not be possible to face players whose hardware belongs to another generation:
- Crossplay between PS5, Xbox Series X | S and PC players.
- Crossplay between PS4 and Xbox One players.
Another matter of Battlefield 2042 to consider is that, fortunately, PS5 and Xbox Series X | S players will be able to choose to enable crossplay excluding PC users. This is because console gamers see keyboard and mouse playing as a significant advantage on the battlefield. This is a feature that the community of Call of duty, mainly that of Warzone, has been crying out since the previous year, especially on the issue of hackers.
Why won’t there be cross-play between different generation consoles? Very simple: we previously inform you that the traditional multiplayer of Battlefield 2042 supports up to 128 simultaneous players on PS5, Xbox Series X | S and PC, while on PS4 and Xbox One it stays at 64. In addition, DICE confirmed that the maps will also have changes in previous generation platforms, as their design must be adapted to provide a good experience despite having a smaller number of players.
Battlefield 2042 bet on cross progression
Finally, you should know that Battlefield 2042 will have cross-progression (cross progression). However, there will be no limit here depending on the generation. For example, if you level up and purchase cosmetic items for your specialist from an Xbox One, you can also find them on a PlayStation 5. DICE indicates that these novelties will be put to the test for a test technical that will take place this summer. If you want to participate you must register from the following link.
