In a recent interview, Battlefield 2042’s Senior Design Director Daniel Berlin revealed more details regarding how cross-play and cross-progression will work in the latest Battlefield game. Here’s what we know so far in the most recent development.
Recently Battlefield 2042 has been the talk of the town. The upcoming installment in the Battlefield series has got many hungry for news on how the game will function. Although we were treated to the E3 2021: Battlefield 2042 gameplay trailer, players are still eager for more info arriving at EA Play Live later this month.
Whilst an earlier EA Play Live revealed more about Battlefield Hub, remastered fan-favorite maps, and new details for Battlefield 2042, players still have many unanswered questions.
Now, more details have been revealed regarding how cross-play will work in Battlefield 2042. Interestingly, Call of Duty: Warzone’s opt-out crossplay system has done little to fix some serious problems for the game. In fact, it appears that this decision has managed to taint the battle royale experience for the majority of console users.
However, Battlefield fans can rejoice in the latest news that 2042 will feature opt-out crossplay alongside a well-thought-out cross progression system. So, without further ado, here is how the cross-play systems will operate in Battlefield 2042.
Battlefield 2042: Cross-Play & Cross Progression
Battlefield 2042 will feature opt-out cross-play as well as cross-progression across both generations of consoles, including PC. Now, with new information, it is revealed that Battlefield 2042 players can experience cross-play together, with one minor drawback.
Sadly Battlefield 2042 will not be able to bridge the gap between older and next-gen consoles in terms of cross-play. Unfortunately, this does mean that Xbox One users will not be able to play with Series X or PlayStation 5 users for example.
Whilst somewhat disappointing, it is understandable given the hardware differences between older and next-gen consoles. However, recently Battlefield 2042 unveiled its official partners giving players a glimpse of the technical capabilities of the new game.
Furthermore, something to note is that opt-out cross-play for Battlefield 2042 will be completely optional for both PC and console players. Alongside this, cross-progression will be enabled allowing fans to pick up their progress and purchases across both PC, Xbox, or PlayStation.
However, at least players can look forward to Battlefield 2042’s mysterious Hazard Zone game mode. Interestingly, new leaked details regarding Hazard Zone have emerged ahead of the next EA Play Live event on July 22. Although, exciting new details regarding the mode are coming soon.
