Study resolves some of the doubts about what cross-play will look like
EA DICE presented a little over a month ago what their next big project will be. Battlefield 2042 will launch in PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S, PC and new generation consoles October 22. There is relatively little time left for its big premiere, and despite the studio having provided plenty of information on its game modes, there are still doubts about its playability.
Battlefield 2042 will not have a campaign mode, but it will have fairly large multiplayer. With so many possibilities at your fingertips, it has also been confirmed that the project will have cross-play. However, since this is a function that every business performs differently, it didn’t take long for some questions to arise as to what exactly it will look like.
Thanks to a new entry in the official blog of the game, EA DICE lets us discover the novelties. First of all, it’s a feature that has postponed its technical test to the end of the summer to take advantage of the progress of the game. This test will be adapted to “a few thousand participants” before the open beta and will be available only for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X users | S
In addition to the cross-play, the study also explains the construction progression and cross-trade
Additionally, when it comes to bringing players together in the same game, they write that PC and console gamers can choose not to play together. There’s a preview of how we can expect cross-play to happen, with users from PC, Xbox Series X | S and PS5 on the one hand, and Xbox One and PS4 on the other.
