Battlefield 2042 is a first-person shooter multiplayer which is the twelfth installment in the Battlefield series. The game was developed by DICE and published by Electronic Arts. But is it coming out on Game Pass?

Battlefield 2042 became available for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers through their EA Play partnership. Game Pass Ultimate subscribers receive a free membership for EA Play with their subscription. This enables the player to access free titles included in the EA Play games catalog. Battlefield 2042 is hence available to download with an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership. The Game Pass Core membership does not give the subscriber access to EA Play and hence, Battlefield 2042 is not available to play for Game Pass Core members.
