The other good news is that Electronic Arts also promises cross-progression and cross-trade for the new Battlefield 2042, which will be shared across all platforms, so you can travel with you wherever you go. In other words, your unlocked progress and purchases made in your PlayStation version of the game will be in the game on the Xbox or PC version, and vice versa.

On the gaming side, Battlefield 2042 will obviously give pride of place to multiplayer, with battles that will include up to 64 players on the previous generation of consoles, and up to 128 players on PS5, Xbox Series X and PC. Obviously, in order to avoid too long waiting times to fill the various lobbies, the game will use bots.

EA thus indicates that dozens of bots will be able to swell the ranks of a game with 128 players. On the side of DICE, we have already wanted to reassure the players, a little cautious at the idea of ​​having to play with bots. Thus, the developers promise that these protagonists managed by the AI ​​will be able to have an artificial intelligence similar to that of a real human player.

DICE thus promises that it will be virtually impossible to tell the difference between an AI-led bot and a soldier led by another human player. It remains to be seen now how the studio will manage the precision of these bots, with a balance that is sometimes very complicated to find between offering bots with keen eyesight and totally surreal, or on the contrary relatively stupid bots… To be continued.
