128 Players for Next-Gen Consoles and PC

Total Player Count
PS4 / XBOX One PS5 / XBOX Series X/S / PC
64 (Max) 128 (Max)

Last-Gen platforms (PS4 / Xbox One) will be limited to a maximum of only 64 players for the Game Modes that feature that player count, such as Conquest or Breakthrough. Meanwhile, those on the PC, XBOX Series X/S, and the Playstation 5 will get to enjoy a maximum of 128 Players depending on the game mode chosen.

Is There Crossplay?

Unfortunately, players on last-gen consoles will not be able to take part in any game with those playing on next-gen consoles and PCs. Even if players decide to create Battlefield Portal Experiences that limit the player count to only 64 players, they will still be unable to play in any games together.

While players on the PS5 / XBOX Series X/S / PC will get to enjoy comparatively larger player counts in their matches, they can choose to play in matches with lower player counts by creating custom experiences in Battlefield Portal.

Players on last-gen consoles, meanwhile, will not be able to create experiences with player counts that go beyond the hard set limit of only 64 players – they will, however, be allowed to create experiences that go below the 64 player limit.

    • Just a normal day on battlefield 2042. Nothing new to see here

    • I have 5 GPUs every other game there is no problem mining crypto while playing a game, but 2042 it crashes my pc even though I have disabled the display GPU in the miner software and have set physics to the CPU. I don't have to go through any of these steps with any other game I just mine crypto and play and don't need to disable display GPU at all. The only way I can get it to play is by not mining at all, but even then I am stuck in window mode.
