Here are the cross-play and PC details for ‘Battlefield 2042’

Battlefield 2042 is set to come out soon this year, and there’s a lot of players who are excited for when it eventually arrives.

Speaking of its overall availability, then Battlefield 2042 will support cross-play on PC and consoles. However, there are certain things you need to know before you grab your copies.

‘Battlefield 2042’ cross-play details

EA recently revealed key information about the upcoming new entry into the franchise. Emphasizing the cross-play, it mentioned that it would have some limitations.

Battlefield 2042 is supposed to have a cross-play feature on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S. It will enable the players to enjoy the matches together.

Similarly, PS4 and Xbox One owners can also play it with each other but separate from other platforms. Because the previous-gen consoles only support 64 users at one time instead of 128 players.

Other things will remain mostly similar for both the present-gen and past-gen platforms.

EA mentioned this detail in its recent Answers blog post. It also shared information regarding dynamic weather events and environmental hazards.

The playable area on the maps will also be slightly different. It will be for those players who have older consoles.

Alongside cross-play, Battlefield 2042 will also have “cross-commerce.” It implies that your purchases on the PlayStation will be available on the PC and Xbox as well. That will be very helpful and also convenient.

The initial technical playtest for the game will arrive “later this summer.”

Fans can expect more news on the title during EA’s Play event on July 22.
