Should Battlefield 2042 have a Battle Pass system like Halo: Infinite?



It looks like the developers of DICE pressed all the right buttons with Battlefield 2042. They’ve already created a huge hype with the release of two incredible trailers last month. Along with that, they’ve also proven that the game will respond to fans of the franchise who want to try something crazy.

Many of its main elements have yet to be revealed. They haven’t talked about the two modes that will be available to players in the game, including the Danger Zone, which will be a team-based experience. Other than that, fans have no idea what customization it comes in, with minimal information about the title’s Battle Pass. Multiplayer Battle Passes have changed little in the FPS and Battle Royale genre in recent months. But that could change soon with Halo Infinite. So, is it time for Battlefield 2042 to emulate something like this?

The Halo Infinite Battle Pass system that will be crazy for Battlefield 2042

Halo Infinite will reinvent the FPS genre when it releases later this year. The popular 343 Industries franchise featured a lot of cool stuff about the game that got many fans excited. One of the biggest attractions in the game is the new Battle Pass system which won’t have any time-locked content, so it will never expire.

Halo Infinite will only offer cosmetics that will have no effect on gameplay. So, if players miss an element of the pass, they can always come back to complete it later. Likewise, they can also purchase the Battle Pass for that season at a later date, if they like it.

Why this makes sense for DICE’s latest offering

Battlefield 2042 is sure to create an experience that other games in the genre cannot match. With explosive, high octane gameplay, fans are sure to enjoy the exhilarating matches. Many of the players will be former franchise veterans who have played every title over the past decade. If ever these players have difficulty with the challenges of the Battle Pass, they can always come back later with this system.

Additionally, DICE also won’t lose money if it offers old Battle Passes even after the season has expired. It’s a win-win for the business and the consumer, and fans will certainly appreciate the developers for making such a decision. Cosmetics have a major role to play in the revenue model of any AAA title, and it would be a shame if developers were to lose such an opportunity.

It will be interesting to see if Battlefield 2042 will implement this Battle Pass system when it arrives later this year. Other than that, it remains to be seen whether franchises like Call of Duty or Fortnite will reconsider their Battle Passes to function like the one Halo Infinite will have. The chances of that happening are slim, but if it does, fans will certainly be rushing to the store to buy them instantly.
