The news regarding the title developed by the now called Ripple Effect Studios, formerly known as DICE, has not stopped filling the covers of news portals in recent weeks. Since the title was presented before E3 2021 and subsequently shown in motion at the Xbox conference, the studio has not stopped offering new details of Battlefield 2042.
Today, through a new Battlefield Briefing, it has been confirmed that Battlefield 2042 will feature cross-play and cross-progression, so we can play with players from different platforms if we wish, and if we have the title on Xbox and PC, for example, everything we unlock in one will be available in the other.
Battlefield 2042 will feature cross-play
Those invited to The next technical demo this summer will have the opportunity to test the cross-play Between Xbox Series X | S, PS5, and PC players, and Xbox One and PS4 players. Both PC and console gamers can choose not to play with each other and it seems that players on older generation platforms cannot be grouped with current generation players. Which makes sense given the difference in map sizes and player counts.
