The DICE shooter has also pushed back its beta date to refine this aspect.
When Battlefield 2042 was announced, from DICE, the creators of the game, promised in the presentation that there would be a beta of the next multiplayer shooter in the series so that fans could see their news first hand. This test phase was scheduled for the beginning of July and, as you can see if you look at the calendar, we are already halfway through the month and we do not have it with us. But it has an explanation.
From DICE they have issued a statement with news about the expected Battlefield 2042 detailing that the beta is temporarily delayed because they have wanted to add the cross-game function between consoles and PC to the testing phase. In this way, users of PS5, Xbox Series and PC they will be able to fight the battles together; like those of PS4 with Xbox One. And if plan A fails, the servers will fill up with bots.
Players can choose to block this crossover gameThe beta will arrive “throughout the summer so that hundreds of participants can help us test some of the new features and functionalities that we are building for Battlefield 2042 “, they say from DICE. This division for cross-play has been made like this because the previous generation systems have games limited to 64 players, while the new consoles and PC can host up to 128 players.
As in this situation, PC players usually have a greater advantage when using the keyboard and mouse, each user can choose not to play together. PC and console users they can block cross play if they wish. Battlefield 2042 will be available on October 22 and will not have a single campaign: it will only be a multiplayer experience.
