The developers have unveiled the seventeenth edition in the Battlefield series with a gorgeous teaser displaying maps and weaponry. Since the game focuses on multiplayer and lacks a single-player campaign, many gamers are wondering if Battlefield 2042 is cross platform and supports crossplay. If you’re contemplating the same thing, here’s all we know about it right now.
Is Battlefield 2042 Crossplay?
Yes, Battlefield 2042 is speculated to offer crossplay within the same console generation, this means same gen Xbox, and PlayStation will be able to play together now along with cross progression. However, the developers have yet to confirm the report. They could reveal it at the gameplay announcement on June 13, 2021.
If implemented correctly, Battlefield 2042 will be the first Battlefield game in the franchise to offer crossplay. This would be a significant step forward for the studio. According to inside sources, the game will include crossplay functionality in open beta prior to its October 22, 2021 release date for Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Series S.
Will Battlefield 2042 Have Cross Progression?
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it is doubtful that new-gen and old-gen Battlefield 2042 gamers will be able to have Cross Platform in Conquest and Breakthrough modes. This is due to the fact that BF 2042 on Xbox One and PS4 will only feature 64 players. However, the same modes will be available to play with 128 players in All-Out Warfare. This includes PC, PS5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S multiplayer games. So due to this, we might not get a cross progression in Battlefield 2042. But all will be revealed on June 13, 2021.
Battlefield 2042 will have crossplay on smaller and more concentrated maps with just 64 players on previous-generation versions. However, the environmental hazards and dynamic weather will continue to exist in these maps. The new-gen platforms include the largest landscapes in the franchise’s history, with improved dynamic weather and environmental hazards on a greater scale.
Here are the known seven new maps that will be included in the launch of Battlefield 2042:
- Breakaway (Queen Maud Land, Antarctica)
- Discarded (Alang, India)
- Hourglass (Doha, Qatar)
- Kaleidoscope (Songdo, South Korea)
- Manifest (Brani Island, Singapore)
- Orbital (Kourou, French Guiana)
- Renewal (Eastern Desert, Egypt)
