Open Beta for Battlefield 2042 is also running at full speed and we are getting more and more impressions from the community. Unfortunately, not all results are positive, as a comparison video between PS4 and PS5.
DICE and EA released Battlefield 2042 Open Beta. After some teething issues at the beginning of the testing phase, the beta should now work smoothly for all pre-orders and EA Play subscribers.
Of course, now impressions and ideas are growing, because the developers are not covering up anything and we players can put the shooter in his stride. Basically, Battlefield 2042 seems to have been well received by the community, but two platforms have not lived up to expectations: PS4 and Xbox One.
Battlefield 2042 with weaknesses on last generation consoles
Since the disastrous launch of Cyberpunk 2077 on legacy consoles from Sony and Microsoft, every new AAA release fears that the last generation of consoles won’t be able to keep up. A comparison video from the ElAnalistaDeBits YouTube channel shows that this also applies to Battlefield 2042He is, even if not so badly as the aforementioned role-playing game shooter from CD Projekt.
The video clearly shows that the environment not only looks better on the PS5, but there is more to watch. On PS4, in addition to textures, insight also suffers. As we know, the lower appearance isn’t the only limitation on older consoles. Instead of 128 players, only 64 players can fight each other at the same time on PS4 and Xbox One – and on much smaller maps.
Also worth reading the articles:
Gamers on PS4 and Xbox One are now hoping that DICE will work on the last generation release until the final release. As announced by the developers, the beta is based on an older version of Battlefield 2042. Since then, both appearance and stability have been improved. So hope can be justified.
Battlefield 2042 will be released on November 19 for PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One. EA Play subscribers and pre-orders can start early access on November 12.
