The variety offered within the Battlefield Division is going nuclear! There is something for everyone! Battlefield Division has not only merged as crossplay, with new Division Officer JustanEnigma, but will attempt to carry multiple Battlefield Titles simultaneously. One Battlefield game will be the newest release, Battlefield 2042. While another game is Battlefield V, the title released in November of 2018. And if you are fortunate enough to have an Xbox Series X, and find yourself within the Timberwolves Squad, the Battlefield Titles also include within play rotation are Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 4. Why would Battlefield Division attempt to carry multiple titles of Battlefield? Because Battlefield 2042 has complications with how the game was rolled out to consumers.
For the most part anyone within the gaming world realizes the issues with the newest release of the Battlefield franchise, Battlefield 2042. The excitement for this release was massive, and loyal fans chomped at the bit for a modern Battlefield game. Not only exciting new graphics and game modes, but the joy of cross platform was to be introduced. It was not long after the release of 2042, that the excitement manifested into frustration. The game had function errors, but more importantly to TG members the game did not have in-game communication. To communicate with squamates a player had to be in a private party chat, with zero in-game communication. Additionally, having multiple squads join the same game was almost impossible. This aspect has had a domino effect creating lack of enthusiasm towards the game, which in turn diminishes not only recruiting but member retention. That is not to say some do not enjoy playing 2042. They do, and Battlefield Division has decided to try and please all who adore the Battlefield series. But there might be some tricky waters to navigate within the process?
The most recent Battlefield Title, Battlefield 2042, was designed to include two versions of the game to be played. But wait...that is not all! Battlefield 2042 also offers different versions of the game that can only be played on certain platforms. One version of the game was created to be played on the previous generation of consoles, PS4 and Xbox One. This version can be played cross platform, but exclusively with older generation consoles. Then Dice, the developer of Battlefield, created a version of the game that is played cross platform on the newest generation of consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series X, as well as with PC. This aspect of the design splits the player base. Those with older consoles cannot play with those that have been fortunate enough to get their hands on the newest versions of consoles, or a PC. To solve this issue Battlefield Division will have designated squads for a specific version of the game, to be played on a specific platform or combination of platforms.
Although improvements have been made by the development team of Battlefield 2042, for some members, the problems outweighed the desire to play the game at all. But the appeal of playing as a team, in true TG fashion, was still desired by Battlefield Division members and obtainable within the Battlefield V and older Battlefield titles. Therefore, the decision was made to allow Battlefield V, as well as other previous Titles, back into the Division.
