Battlefield 2042: new details about the beta, cross-play, cross-progression and more

Battlefield 2042, the future online-only experience from the franchise, is back in the spotlight. The studio DICE has revealed several details about the game, including who you will be able to play against from your platform or what will happen with your online profile if you want to jump onto another platform.

To begin with, the Technical Playtest expected in the next few weeks was delayed. Apparently, it will be released before the end of the summer, but this information needs further confirmation.

On another topic, players will be able to participate in these epic wars against users of different platforms. Cross-play was confirmed and it works the following way: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and PC users can play against each other. Owners on PS4 can play against Xbox One players, and vice versa. However, owners of next-gen machines can’t fight against those from current-gen. This makes sense when you think that both PS4 and Xbox One players won’t be able to participate in the 128-player experiences. 

Finally, it was also revealed that DICE is working on cross-progression and cross-commerce. It looks like owners of the game on one platform will be able to jump onto another one and carry over all their progress and in-game purchases. 

Battlefield 2042 will be released on October 22.
