DICE has finally revealed all the details you need to know about the crossplay and cross-platform parties in the Battlefield 2042 Beta!
It’s been a long time coming, but the Battlefield 2042 Beta is finally arriving next week. It’ll be the first time that many gamers get to try the new Battlefield game, and the expectations are high.
DICE has already revealed the Battlefield 2042 Beta trailer and release date. However, the developer left one major detail out of the first announcement – crossplay.
Luckily, a Dice representative has now confirmed all of the details regarding crossplay and cross-platform parties in the Battlefield 2042 Beta.
Can You Play The Battlefield 2042 Beta With Friends on Other Platfroms?
DICE previously unveiled details about Battlefield 2042’s opt-out crossplay and cross-progression, but, initially, there was no word about whether this would be included in the Beta.
Now, however, a Battlefield representative has confirmed to Screenrant how crossplay will work in the Beta and whether gamers can play it with their friends on other platforms.
The statement confirms that crossplay within a console generation will be enabled in the beta. PS4 and Xbox One will be in one “crossplay universe”, while PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC will be in another.
However, there is a pretty big crossplay feature missing in the Battlefield 2042 Beta.
Unfortunately, crossplay parties will be disabled in the Beta version of the game. This means that players won’t be able to squad up with their friends who play on different platforms.
This is a major disappointment for many fans of the series. However, at least this feature will be ready when the new Battlefield 2042 release date finally arrives.
Plus DICE has also confirmed the new Early Access release date for Battlefield 2042 too. Just make sure you know when Battlefield 2042 pre-loads start first!
