In the past weeks, DICE and EA introduced Battlefield 2042, which we have been following with interest since the day we first heard about it. Us in the Battlefield series back to modern time, and even the trailer of the new game, which will take it to the future, was met with great interest by everyone who has played Battlefield or not before.
About Battlefield 5, which was announced to be released on October 22, EA made both a happy and a sad statement today. In the new blog post shared, the company is between PC and next-generation consoles without making any definitive statements. that there may be cross-platform support said. In addition, progress and purchases between platforms will be matched with each other.
Those with previous console will be excluded:
The sad part is that it concerns those with previous generation consoles. Cross-platform support, basically in two different groups will take place. in the first group PC, Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 blowing players 128 people while playing the matches in the second group PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will only encounter each other and 64 people will be included in the mods.
Of course, the pairing of old-generation consoles with each other is not something done on purpose. Battlefield 2042, with 128-player servers, will require more hardware than these devices can handle. Therefore, although it is sad, the situation of players who have previous generation consoles adoptions already required.
PC and next-generation console players will also be able to choose not to encounter each other. Computer players will only have the opportunity to meet computer players, console players will only have the opportunity to meet console players. Cross-platform support of Battlefield 2042, this summer with technical alpha version will only be tested with invited players.
