EA’s upcoming shooter game Battlefield 2042 may not have a single-player mode but it features exciting multiplayer modes for players to jump into. So far, we only know about the All-Out Warfare and Hazard Zone but there are more that are to be revealed and we might have some information on that!
According to a report by VG247, Battlefield 2042’s unannounced game mode is called Battlefield Hub and it will be a sandbox containing remastered versions of Battlefield maps with different weapons and vehicles from past versions of the game. Tom Henderson, a reputed leaker, provides more information saying “Battlefield Hub is going to contain remasters of maps from old Battlefield titles. It’s going to be [maps] on the Battlefield 2042 engine. The movement and stuff like that is going to be exactly the same, but you’re essentially playing on a remastered map with different weapons and vehicles from past Battlefield titles.”
It will be the ultimate sandbox experience
In All-Out Warfare, either 128 or 64 players, depending on the platform, can engage in action on massive maps whereas Hazard Zone is a squad-based mode which “is a modern take on multiplayer experience”. Both of these game modes might have a very specific objective and players can dive in with a competitive spirit. Battlefield Hub, on the other hand, will lean on the lighter side of gaming.
“The Battlefield Hub is going to be the ultimate sandbox experience and is going to be the “fun” game mode. The reason [my source] has described it as a fun game mode is because they say that this isn’t necessarily going to be a competitive experience or a balanced experience. Instead, this is going to be the ultimate sandbox experience when players are just going to be able to have fun — a Battlefield 1 tank vs. a Battlefield 3 tank,” says Tom.
More information about the unannounced game mode will be revealed on July 22 during the EA Live event.
Battlefield 2042 is scheduled to release on October 22 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5, and PC through Steam, Origin, and the Epic Games store.
