Cross-play for Battlefield 2042 has been confirmed, here's how it will work

Cross-play for Battlefield 2042 has been confirmed

One of the most common questions regarding the upcoming Battlefield 2042 was: does it support cross-play? Rumors indicated that, but during the official unveiling of the game, DICE was not completely transparent about it. Now they have confirmed - cross-play will be supported in Battlefield 2042… in part.

When we say partial we mean that multiplayer will be open between different platforms, but depending on the versions of the game. Versions for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X / S will have larger maps and more players than versions for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, so the meaning of cross-play falls away. However, PC, PS5, and XSX / S versions will be able to play together, while players on the PS4 console will be able to play against players on XBO consoles.

All of this will be optional, let’s face it - if you don’t want to play with players on other platforms, you can turn that option off.

Support for cross-progression and cross-commerce has also been confirmed. This means that all your progress in one version of the game will be transferred to all versions for other platforms if you ever play them. In addition, if you buy some cosmetics on one platform, you will also get them on another at no extra charge. Let’s face it - buying one version of a game on one platform doesn’t get you a free version for another platform.

All of this is good news, but it’s worth noting that cross-stuff support is still in testing, and it’s possible that these functionalities won’t be available right after the game’s release. Still, it’s nice to know that this will be the first Battlefield to break down the barriers of its predecessors.
