The highly-anticipated Battlefield 2042 will be releasing soon, and fans are wondering if you need PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold to play it. Here’s everything you need to know.
This title will revolve entirely around multiplayer, so there are no single-player or offline modes to try out. This has caused console players to wonder if they need active subscriptions to play Battlefield 2042.
We’ve got you covered in this guide.
Do you need Xbox Live to play Battlefield 2042?
Yes, you need Xbox Live to play Battlefield 2042 online on both Xbox One and Series X|S. You’ll have to sign up for Microsoft’s subscription service to enjoy this multiplayer title.
You can get either Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate to play the game. Xbox Live Gold costs $59.99 for a year-long subscription, so it’s worth springing for that so that you can enjoy this online multiplayer title.
Do you need PlayStation Plus to play Battlefield 2042?
For those on either PS4 or PS5, PlayStation Plus is required to play Battlefield 2042. PS Plus costs £50/$60 for a year’s subscription, and you’ll need to sign up if you want to play the game.
Since the game has no offline single-player content, there will be nothing for you to access if you’re not connected to the Internet. While some free-to-play titles like Warzone don’t require PS Plus, it’s always required for premium releases.
It’s worth keeping these details in mind when purchasing Battlefield 2042. While the game will launch as an online-multiplayer only title, the developers might implement some free days at a later point.
