DICE showed Battlefield 2042 on the consoles of older generation with a single image of the game on Xbox One: to tell the truth not much to be able to give a thoughtful judgment but it is still a start, considering that the game can still be tried by hand in these days.
The official Battlefield 2042 account wanted to testify on the quality of the work done even on last gen consoles with a single screenshot from the Xbox One version, which basically had never been shown in official form previously, since the presentations have always focused on the next gen.
“Your first glimpse of Battlefield 2042 on Xbox One”, reads the tweet about it, “We can’t wait to show you more of the capture on PC that we will be doing in 8 hours”. There is not much to evaluate: the screenshot certainly looks great but it is too little to get a precise idea, also because it should be seen in motion. However, a lower resolution is perceptible and obviously a lower level of detail and visual distance than what we have seen so far on the next gen.
In any case, there is now little to wait to see the game in action in a much more practical way: starting today, theopen beta of Battlefield 2042, with early access for all those who have pre-ordered, have a subscription to EA Play or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which makes it much easier to get an accurate idea of how the game works.
Obviously the beta version is not the definitive one, so we must still take into consideration the fact that the game will have to be further evolved and refined. For the rest, we have seen how the digital versions PS5 and Xbox Series X | S are now a Cross-Gen Bundle, that is, they allow access to the versions of both generations through the Dual Entitlement of EA, while we remember that the preload of the beta was made available yesterday.
