Battlefield 2042 Destruction to Be at BF5’s Level for Most Maps; New Maps Have Areas to Focus on Infantry-Only Combat

Battlefield 2042 Down

Earlier today, DICE unveiled a new gameplay trailer for Battlefield 2042 that introduced some of the new maps we’ll be playing on at launch. Now, for those wondering about the Battlefield 2042 destruction elements, it seems it’ll be similar to how Battlefield 5 (BFV) handled it across “most maps.”

This was confirmed by DICE Community Manager Kevin Johnson on Twitter, where he states that fans can expect “Battlefield V’s level of destruction.”

In a separate tweet, Johnson also commented that the new maps have battlefields “within them” that will focus on infantry combat. This will happen while other fights are happening around you, which is possible given how full-scale Battlefield 2042 matches will feature 128 players.

While the Battlefield 2042 destruction news might be a downer for some hoping for some Bad Company 2-like environmental decimation, there were still a significant amount of destruction in Battlefield 5’s maps, though not in all of them. That said, we do have the levolution-like elements like tornadoes in BF2042’s levels, which should spice things up in every match, no?

Battlefield 2042 is set to launch this November 19 on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, though it will be playable in early access (depending on the version you bought or if you’re a member of EA Play) on November 12.
