Ever since it was announced that Battlefield 2042 would focus on multiplayer, fans had mixed feelings about the game being full-priced, despite new features that might justify the price and a number of other online-only shooters being full-priced as well.
Still, fans who have mixed thoughts about the current direction of Battlefield 2042 should know that this game might have some sort of free-to-play model, which would be great for those that are on the fence about this game.
Will Battlefield 2042 Be Free-To-Play?
In a pre-reveal event of Battlefield 2042, the developers were asked outright if the game would have any kind of free-to-play, given how popular games like Call of Duty: Warzone and Apex Legends.
Fans will be happy to know that DICE general manager Oskar Gabrielson simply said “stay tuned,” indicating that there will be some sort of free-to-play version of Battlefield 2042, which is very interesting, to say the least.
Considering how they just announced a bunch of Special Editions for Battlefield 2042, not to mention the systems this game will be playable on, there’s a chance that whatever free-to-play version of the game will be coming is going to be announced down the line.
Hopefully, we see more news on this free-to-play version of Battlefield 2042 in the near future, maybe even a new free-to-play Battlefield game in general, but only time will tell.
Since this free-to-play version of Battlefield 2042 hasn’t been officially announced yet, we’re going to assume that this is a rumor for now, though one teased by the developers.
Only time will tell if this actually happens but let’s hope that’s the case.
Battlefield 2042 comes out on October 22 for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
