Battlefield 2042 will fully utilise the power of next-gen consoles which will allow for smooth 60 FPS gameplay in crispy clear 4K visuals, according to the early listing on Microsoft Store.
Today, EA and DICE finally revealed Battlefield 2042, the next instalment in the popular shooter franchise. The game is now available for pre-order and it's coming later this year to last-gen and current-gen consoles as well as PC.
Interestingly, EA explained that the difference between the last and current-gen version of the game will be quite big. For example, the maps will be smaller on last-gen, game modes will support only 64 players while PS5 and XSX|S will allow for up to 128 players and there's also visuals and performance, which will be much better on new consoles.
On Xbox Series X, it's confirmed that Battlefield 2042 will run at 4K/60 FPS, which is certainly what many players have been hoping to hear. Additionally, the listing on the Microsoft Store states that the game will be optimised for Xbox Series X|S and features Xbox cross-platform multiplayer.
The first gameplay footage of Battlefield 2042 will be revealed at Xbox and Bethesda E3 2021 showcase, which is scheduled for Sunday, June 13, 2021. The event will be live-streamed on Xbox's social media channels as well as YouTube.
This is certainly the show where we will get more details about the game's performance on next-gen consoles and perhaps the confirmation of a 120 FPS mode, which has also been requested by the community.
