Unleash your creativity with the new Battlefield 2042 Portal game mode
By Declan Barry - 23rd Jul 2021News
This brand-new mode is launching with the game on October 21, 2021
Electronic Arts and DICE revealed a new game mode for the upcoming Battlefield 2042 game at EA Play Live. It's fair to say they're encouraging gamers to think outside of the box with this one as they put players in control of creating experiences for fellow Battlefield community members.
“Battlefield Portal is a love letter to fans and creators,” says Senior Design Director Justin Wiebe of Ripple Effect Studios™ (formerly known as DICE LA). “This creative suite will give the community more opportunity than ever before to create their own spin on the Battlefield experience.”
Within the mode, you'll be able to create and find experiences made by the community with settings, custom modes and a Logic Editor all able to be tweaked within the sandbox. Examples that EA gave us in a recent blog post about the mode include:
That's not all though, as you'll be able to play with maps, weapons, and vehicles from Battlefield 1942, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and Battlefield 3, as well as the new ones found in Battlefield 2042. All of these iconic maps, weapons, and vehicles will be reimagined at modern visuals to bring the classics that you love up to the next-gen standard.
The Logic Editor also promises the freedom to really create your dream scenario by defining rules, victory conditions, consequences of specific in-game events (like setting a reward or punishment for a player scoring a kill), and even more to create custom game modes that go beyond the realms of what is possible with the settings.
This will be perfect for those players who want to make their own game within the game, and we're excited to see this in the hands of all the creative gamers out there.
There will be more news coming about the Battlefield Portal game mode before the Battlefield 2042 launch on October 21, 2021, and you can pre-order the game on our store here to get early access to the open beta.
