Battlefield 2042's arrival on PlayStation Plus has benefited the game EA and DICE, since, according to unofficial statistics, the player base would increase by 500% with this landing on the subscription service.
A jump in PS4 and PS5 was expected, and Sony's basic subscription was anticipated, but this rate is truly remarkable, even if it remains to see how long it will be able to keep at these levels.
Battlefield 2042 has been added to the PlayStation Plus catalog for March 2023, within the Essential tier and therefore accessible to a large number of users. According to TrueTrophies' data, this does not represent an official source.
According to the database in question, the increase in players would have been as much as 578 percent, which is a very positive result, going from being the 31st most played game to the fifth position.
After initial testing, it will be a question of whether or not these players will continue to play, forming a more stable foundation for EA's futuristic warfare shooter, although the move has been a success for the game.
