Battlefield 2042 crossplay functionality is one of the most highly requested features of the upcoming Battlefield title. This modern-day gameplay function would allow all friends to party up and play together — regardless of what gaming platform they are using to play Battlefield 2042. This guide will detail all there is to know about Battlefield 2042 crossplay and other cross-compatibility features to come in Battlefield 2042.

Battlefield 2042 Crossplay: Will Battlefield 2042 Have Crossplay?

Battlefield 2042 is set to include two branches of crossplay. PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5 will play together while Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will crossplay in a separate queue. Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 players will have the option to opt-out of crossplay with PC if they choose.

The different generations of platforms are incompatible, which is why cross-platform play between next-gen and current-gen is disabled. PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5 can participate in matches up to 128 players, while Xbox One and PlayStation 4 can only handle 64 players in one match. Furthermore, the Battlefield 2042 maps come in different sizes depending on which generation you play on.

There is a chance that crossplay will not be available immediately when Battlefield 2042 launches on October 22, 2021. EA and DICE were vague in their announcement of crossplay, iterating that it is a work in progress. Depending on how testing and development goes, it's certainly possible that EA and DICE delay the crossplay function past the official release date of Battlefield 2042. However, crossplay should be available at some point at least.

This is also the first Battlefield game to include crossplay. No Battlefield title has ever had cross-platform capabilities, so this is a brand-new experience for Battlefield fans.

Battlefield 2042 Crossplay: Will Crossplay Be Included In The Battlefield 2042 Beta?

The Battlefield 2042 beta will likely come equipped with crossplay. The Technical Playtest alpha held in August featured cross-platform play, so it would make sense that the beta releases with crossplay enabled as well. After all, these playtests are how game developers iron out the kinks and ensure the product works come launch.

Battlefield 2042 Crossplay: Cross-Progression And Cross-Commerce

In addition to crossplay, Battlefield 2042 will come with cross-progression and cross-commerce features. Cross-progression will allow Battlefield players to share a single account's progress across all platforms. For example, Battlefield 2042 players can advance a single account on both PC and PlayStation 5. 

Likewise, cross-commerce means that any purchases made on one platform will be shared with the same account when used on a different platform. That skin you purchase on PC will be available for use when you hop on the Xbox.

Along with all of the new cross-compatibility features, Battlefield 2042 will include AI bots that mimic the actions of real players. The purpose of these bots is to fill up leftover spots in lobbies. Players can also look forward to the new battle royale-style mode and a sandbox mode. All in all, there’s a lot to be excited about when it comes to Battlefield 2042.
