It’s nice to see DICE transparent in the final generation version of Battlefield 2042, especially after many players were skeptical of the latest version, especially due to the state of Cyberpunk 2077 at the time of the PS4 and Xbox One launch. ..
If you plan to play Battlefield 2042 on Xbox One or PlayStation 4, EA has announced that dual entitlement will only apply to the new generation version. This means that even if you only have the latest generation consoles, you’ll need to purchase the PS5 or Xbox Series X | S version to play games across generations.
For cross-play, there are two player pools. PS5, Xbox Series X | S, and PC users can play each other, but PlayStation 4 owners can only cross-play with Xbox One owners.
Battlefield 2042 was originally scheduled to go on sale October 22nd, but was delayed by just a few weeks until November 19th. The developers said delays are important for “game size and scope”.
