EA Offers Upgrade for Standard Edition of Battlefield 2042

Upon initially becoming available for pre-order, a cross-gen bundle was only available for the premium versions of Battlefield 2042, currently in development by Dice.

However, EA said “We realise that for many, next gen is still hard to come by” on Tuesday.

They went on to say:

“We want as many Battlefield fans as possible to start the journey with us on day one, and we want to give those players the peace of mind that their progress carries over if they get a new system this holiday season, or beyond.”

This announcement means that players who are planning to purchase next-gen consoles in the future will have the option to pay a fee to upgrade their version of the game and carry over their progress to the new console. Players can pay £10 to upgrade digital versions of the game within their chosen family of consoles. This will provide access to the game on both systems.

Battlefield 2042 is the latest entry into the Battlefield franchise, and the multiplayer only title will support 128-player matches on next-gen consoles and PC. Xbox One and PS4 players however will be restricted to 64 –player matches, and the map sizes will be reduced to make up for the difference in processing power.

At this time the feature has only been announced to be available for digital copies of Battlefield 2042, so it appears that physical copies of the game may not have access to the upgrade.

The Battlefield 2042 Beta is available in early access now. The open beta goes live on the 8th of October and runs until the 10th of October. Here is how to get beta access! The game is expected to release on November 19th 2021.
