Not only did EA unleash the Battlefield 2024 trailer today, but a deluge of info has dropped as well! The Battlefield 2042 maps have been revealed, and there are seven in total so far! Read on for the details on each, as well as the game modes available at launch too.
Battlefield 2042 Maps & Modes:
Kourou, French Guiana
It’s a race against time and hostile conditions as you fight around the site of an imminent rocket launch. Watch out for both enemy fire and upcoming storms on this dynamic map.
Fight in a city lost to the desertification around it. Massive dust and sand storms are constantly rolling in, blotting out the natural light, as you battle for control of a convoy trapped in the shifting sands.
Songdo, South Korea
In a state-of-the art metropolis in South Korea, zipline between skyscrapers and fight among the plazas surrounding the city’s iconic data center
Brani Island, Singapore
Watch out for tropical tornadoes and navigate through maze-like cargo containers in this key trade location, vital to American supply lines.
Along a strategic section of India’s west coast, colossal ships stranded on the beach are being stripped for parts. Fight among the hulls of these behemoths while adapting to deadly storms.
Queen Maud Land, Antarctica
Tread carefully on this dynamic map, where oil extraction has turned the freezing area to a strategic hot spot. Take advantage of destructible fuel tanks and silos that create debris fields and permanent fires when destroyed.
Eastern Desert, Egypt
A giant wall, built to secure rich, man-made agricultural areas, takes center stage on this intense map. Prepare for the extreme conditions, deploy, and secure the access points and massive gates in the wall.
As for the game modes, EA has released details on a few, with one mystery mode set to be revealed this July 22 at EA Play!
Game Modes (Confirmed):
Battlefield’s massive, iconic sandbox mode returns – this time supporting 128 players on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®5, and PC. The maps have been specifically designed for this vast scale, with action divided into “clusters” of various kinds. Also, the action now centers around sectors consisting of several flags instead of individual control points.
The return of Breakthrough sees two teams – Attackers and Defenders – battle over larger-scale sectors as the Attackers push towards the final objective. Each sector is designed to house a larger number of players, enabling more strategic choice and more flanking opportunities. Approach the capture areas from multiple locations and take advantage of more types of tactical possibilities.
An all-new, high-stakes, squad-based game-type for the Battlefield franchise that is a modern take on the multiplayer experience that is distinctly DICE but very different from All-Out Warfare’s Conquest or Breakthrough modes.
There is one mode still to be revealed, and it’s not mentioned whether Rush will be making a return. That said, given the state of multiplayer games these days, we’re expecting more modes and maps to be added in the coming weeks and months.
