Battlefield developer DICE has given us our first look at what Battlefield 2042 looks like on last-gen consoles. On Twitter, the official Battlefield account posted a picture of what the game will look like on Xbox's last-gen system. See for yourself below:

It's good to see DICE being transparent with the last-gen versions of Battlefield 2042, especially after the state of Cyberpunk 2077 on PS4 and Xbox One at launch left many players skeptical of last-gen versions.
If you ae planning to play Battlefield 2042 on Xbox One or PlayStation 4, EA has announced that dual entitlement will only apply to the new-gen versions. This means even if you only have a last-gen console, you should still buy the PS5 or Xbox Series X|S version to play the game across generations.
As for crossplay, there will be two pools of players. People on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC will be able to play with each other, while PlayStation 4 owners will only be able to crossplay with Xbox One owners.
Battlefield 2042 was originally supposed to launch this month on October 22, but it was delayed just a few weeks to November 19. The developers said the delay was important to the "scale and scope of the game".
