Intel on Battlefield 2042
What’s up soldiers and welcome to the beastly news update for Battlefield 2042. Today has dropped some good news for those asking about more details. Thanks to my buddy Lady Arsenic for the details and yes we are getting crossplay for Battlefield 2042. I know, everyone is in celebration and at ease worrying about which version they will obtain.
Battlefield 2042 has crossplay:
Details reign in from EA themselves not only are we getting crossplay but also cross-progression. During the technical test that will be coming up soon. This is where they will start testing the crossplay and as many testers know there will be some iffy functions being that this is their first time implementing cross-play. Also, keep in mind the new Frostbite Engine working in as well, so be thorough EA and DICE.
I personally feel the best news about this is that console and PC players can opt-out of cross playing. So, you can keep it console to console crossplay only. There have been some bumping of heads among PC players and console players since crossplay started to be a thing, because as some of you know. With PC players there is too much open ground to mod and or cheat in any game. Yes, there are a few on the console as well, but not as easy as it is on a PC.
However, for those still in the previous-gen systems there will be no cross-gen play. I know, it is bad especially in the state of how unavailable systems have been unless you have been relentless. Being how big this game will be and the processing power it will need, when you think about it, it will be two different games. Hopefully, when the multiplayer-only game does drop there will be more systems available. Look on the bright side, day one game pass for BF 2042, so that’s a win.
Not just Crossplay:
Expect to also have cross-progression and cross-commerce. Now the cross-progression I experience on Destiny 2, but this will be the first time I am hearing about cross-commerce, or maybe I wasn’t paying attention to that. Whatever you do in the games will follow you and that is great information. There will be a technical test conducted later this summer and only a few will be selected, but do not feel bad if you do not get picked. There will be a pre-order beta happening for all. Take the opportunity to look in the version that fits you best and pre-order here.
Battlefield 2042 will drop on October 22nd, 2021 for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, PlayStation 4 Pro, and Xbox One X. Early access on October 15th will be available to those that pre-order the Gold and Ultimate editions. Stay tuned for more updates as they develop. – Beast Out –
