Battlefield 2042 will follow the expensive current-generation price tag of $69.99 for the PS5 and Xbox Series version according to a press release sent by EA.
Battlefield 2042 is the next game in the series that is set to launch in Holiday 2021. The game will be available on the last and current-generation consoles. The difference hasn’t been explained by EA but we do know that it will carry a slightly expensive price tag like most other current-generation games.
In their press release, EA has mentioned that Battlefield 2042 will be available on PS4 and Xbox One for $59.99 while it will launch on PS5 and Xbox Series for $69.99. PC owners have to shell out $59.99 to get their hands on the game.
Battlefield 2042 is available now for pre-order and is set to launch on retail and digital storefronts on October 22 for $59.99 on Xbox® One, PlayStation®4, and PC, and $69.99 on Xbox® Series X and S and PlayStation®5. EA Play members get a 10-hour trial starting Oct 15, 2021. EA Play members and players who pre-order will receive early access to the Open Beta**. Players who pre-order have three different editions to choose from, including the Battlefield 2042 Gold Edition for $89.99 on PC and $99.99 on console, or the Battlefield 2042 Ultimate Edition for $109.99 on PC or $119.99 on console.
Despite the official press release mentioning this price tag, there appears to be a mistake when it comes to the price on the digital store for PS5. The price of the PS5 version is the same as the PS4 at $59.99 but that is likely going to change soon.
The game will be out on October 22, 2021, for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, PC, and Xbox Series.
