Today, DICE announced a major change to the content of the digital standard edition of Battlefield 2042 for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
The $70 edition now also comes with access to the PS4 and Xbox One versions alongside the main game on new consoles, at no additional charge. Previously, the cross-gen bundle was only included in Battlefield 2042’s $100 Gold, and $120 Ultimate editions.
This effectively means players who intend on buying a PS5 or Xbox Series X/S should feel comfortable getting the standard edition on those storefronts, seeing as it will grant them access to the game on both generations of their console family of choice. It also means that all three editions of the game, when purchased on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, now include the cross-gen bundle.
