Electronic Arts has revealed that Cross-Play Parties will not be included in the Battlefield 2042 Open Beta, although the feature should be included in the full version of the game in November.
Speaking with ScreenRant, a PR representative for EA revealed that participants won’t be able to squad up with players on other formats during the Open Beta.
While cross-play will technically be enabled for Open Beta, Cross-Play Parties will be disabled, meaning friends on different platforms won’t be able to join in squads and play together. However, at launch: Gen 5 and PC will be able to play together in the same cross-play universe. Gen 4 can play together in the same cross-play universe.
The Battlefield 2042 Open Beta is due to kick off on October 8, 2021 and will be available to Early Access customers on October 6. The full game will arrive on November 19 for PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One.
