Today, DICE announced a major change to the content of the Digital Standard Edition Battlefield 2042 Suitable for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
The $70 version can now also be used with the main game on the new console. PS4 and Xbox One versions at no additional cost. Previously, the cross-generational bundle was only included in the $100 Gold Edition and the $120 Ultimate Edition of Battlefield 2042.
This actually means that players who intend to buy PS5 or Xbox Series X/S should feel comfortable getting the standard version at these stores, as this will allow them to access the game on the two-generation console series of their choice. All your progress on the previous generation console will continue to PS5 or Xbox Series X/S.
This also means that all three versions of the game purchased on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S now include cross-generational bundles.
This only applies to the Digital Standard Edition, but it is still a good change, especially considering the $10 difference in support.
Although the content of the two generations of game consoles is basically the same, the previous generation of game consoles will have to deal with some major restrictions. In addition to the expected visual effects and potential frame rate compromise, the main difference is that PS4 and Xbox One players will be limited to 64 players per game, and they will play on a smaller version of the game map.
The previous generation of players can only cross-play with friends of that generation, while PS5 and Xbox Series X/S users can play with PC players.
The beta version of “Battlefield 2042” will be open to pre-order players tomorrow, and open to other players on all platforms on Friday. Please pay attention to our full report tomorrow. The full game will be released on November 19.
