Over the last few years, many games have introduced the feature of crossplay, which allows players to play certain multiplayer titles with other players from different platforms. Battlefield 2042 is one such game. While it is nice that console players can play with their PC friends and vice versa, some people playing the new EA FPS might find themselves not wanting to be randomly queued with players who might have a different input to them. If that is the case, they will need to turn off crossplay. To do that, you are going to make sure that you know how to turn the feature off in the game’s menus. This guide will explain how to disable crossplay in Battlefield 2042.
How to Disable Crossplay in Battlefield 2042
When it comes to being able to disable crossplay in Battlefield 2042, there are slightly different processes that are required between PC and PlayStation consoles and Xbox systems. First, let’s cover PC and PlayStation. Upon booting up the game, you are going to want to go over to the Options button. This will bring up all the settings available to the player, from the display options to subtitles and audio options. You will want to go to the “General” tab and scroll down until you reach the “Other” heading. The first toggle here will be for crossplay. Simply turn it on or off depending on how you want it.
When it comes to Xbox, you will have to disable crossplay on the system level to turn it off for Battlefield 2042. Head over to the settings on the console and select Account. From there, go over to “Privacy & Online Settings” and then select the “Xbox Privacy” option. Go down to “View Details & Customize” and select the “Communication & Multiplayer” option. Finally, you will need to set “You can play with people outside of Xbox Live” to “Block.” After all of those steps, you will no longer play crossplay in Battlefield 2042 on Xbox.
