The footage shows the key differences between playing the game on PS4, PS4 Pro, and PS5, as well as testing performance in general. Battlefield 2042 is available in 1080p at 60 frames per second on PS4, 1620p at 60 frames per second on PS4 Pro, and dynamic 2160p at 60 frames per second on PS5.
Remember that the game is still in BETA, so things may change before the final release. The game operates natively in 1080p and 1620p resolutions on PS4 and PS4 Pro, with no usage of the dynamic resolution system. On the PS5, the tale is a little different; the game employs dynamic resolution, oscillating between 2160p and 1800p.
The map on the PS4/PS4 Pro is significantly smaller. This is due to the maximum number of players allowed per platform, which is 64 on the PS4/Pro and 128 on the PS5. As a result, the game does not support cross-generation play, so if you play on a PS4, you can only play against other PS4 players, and vice versa for a PS5.
The PS5 version contains some crashes as well as FPS and visual flaws, but these should be addressed in the final version of the game. On PS4 and PS4 Pro, the game always runs between 50 and 60 frames per second, but it can occasionally drop below 50. Some details are better on PS4 than on Pro, and even the shadow on PS4 Pro has a lesser quality.
Get ready, because the PS4 and PS4 Pro versions contain a lot of pop-ins, with various items “springing” on your screen. The PS5 version is superior in almost every aspect, including textures, shadows, lighting, field of vision, and more. Finally, ElAnalistaDeBits claims that Battlefield 2042 demonstrates the significant variations between console generations.
Battlefield 2042 will be available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on November 19th.
