Battlefield 2042 Will "Permanently Terminate" Your Account for Racist, Sexist, or Homophobic Behaviour

There’s been a lot of new Battlefield 2042 information lately, with EA telling fans how gaining XP for the Battle Pass works and PC Requirements needed to run the game, at least for the open beta next week, but now the company has released guidelines for players to follow or else they will permanently terminate their Battlefield 2042 accounts.

Obviously, no one wants their Battlefield 2042 accounts permanently terminated, but when you consider how toxic online gaming has been to a number of players, it’s easy to see why EA would have these kinds of measures and they should be commended for that.

Battlefield 2042 Will "Permanently Terminate" Your Account for Racist, Sexist, or Homophobic Behaviour

According to EA’s Battlefield 2042 Community Charter, if you don’t want your Battlefield 2042 accounts to be permanently terminated, you shouldn’t be racist, sexist, homophobic, or hateful to other players, which is understandable since gamers should play in peace.

The Community Charter states that, "Battlefield is a globally inclusive and diverse community where any race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, heritage or country of origin is welcome."

This should be basic information for most gamers but online multiplayer has been filled with hate groups, so it’s easy to see why EA does not want to deal with any of that controversy, hence the permanent termination of Battlefield 2042 accounts for those that don’t follow their guidelines.

Here are the basics of their rules, which don't seem too hard to follow:

  • Treat Others As They Would Like To Be Treated - Squad up and play the objective, together. We won’t tolerate players who negatively disrupt or engage in harmful behavior towards others.
  • Keep Things Fair - Be on the right side of the fight. If you see players breaking the rules, report them.
  • Share Appropriate Content - Don’t fight dirty. Make sure whatever content you’re sharing is appropriate for Battlefield players.
  • Keep Things Honorable - Protect your squad. Keep it legal in Battlefield, and do not participate or encourage in dangerous or illegal activities.

That all seems fair, right? EA says that one infringement may lead to a short-term ban, but repeat offenses could force the company to "permanently terminate" your account.

Hopefully, nothing too bad happens to any players when they decide to have fun with Battlefield 2042, but considering how trolls are everywhere, there’s a very good chance that they are going to plague this game.

If EA follows their own guidelines and permanently terminates any Battlefield 2042 account for being offensive, then this shouldn’t be a huge problem for most online gamers.

Battlefield 2042 will be coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC on November 19.
