Just a few days ago, the well-known publisher Electronic Arts presented the new part of the Battlefield multiplayer shooter series. The game will be released in October and will be titled Battlefield 2042. While gamers have to forego a single-player campaign, the developers of the new Battlefield are completely focusing on online multiplayer. Now EA has revealed the prices for Battlefield 2042 – and they are higher for the new Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X / S consoles than for PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One. Gold and Ultimate Editions with additional content are even more expensive.
