EA does Battlefield 2042 a little more accessible through the generations. The company announced on Tuesday that the digital standard edition of Battlefield 2042 on PS5 and Xbox Series X / S now includes the Cross-Gen Bundle, which gives you access to both the PS4 and PS5 or Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S versions of the game. available only with the more expensive Gold and Ultimate digital editions of Battlefield 2042.
It’s important to note that this intergenerational benefit was only added to the Digital Standard Editions for next-gen consoles. If you buy the Digital Standard Edition on PS4 or Xbox One, where it’s $ 10 cheaper than on the PS5 and Xbox Series X / S, you won’t get the Cross-Gen Pack. The Cross-Gen Bundle is also not an option for a physical copy of the game.
Battlefield 2042 supports full cross-progression, so no matter where you play, as long as you play on profiles that log into the same EA Account, your progress will continue. If you are planning to buy a next-gen console in the future, but want to start playing Battlefield 2042 on your PS4 or Xbox One before you do so, you might want to grab the Next Generation Digital Standard Edition so you can get free access to the next generation version of the game later on.
