Fans will be eager to get their hands on EA’s upcoming shooter title Battlefield 2042 and for the right reasons. The game might not include a single-player mode but EA is offering new multiplayer experiences for players to try out. The All-Out Warfare mode is a “next-generation conquest and breakthrough” mode featuring 128-player action on some of the largest maps in Battlefield history. Remember that All-Out Warfare mode allows 128 players on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC only. On old-generation consoles, All-Out Warfare features 64 players.
But there won’t always be 128 players. According to a report by The Verge, EA will add up to 64 AI-controlled bots to keep the matches populated if there aren’t enough players to fill up the servers.
Priority will be given to humans
You might not encounter bots during peak playtimes. EA says humans will be prioritized and a bot might be kicked when a player joins. EA will reveal more information about the functioning of these bots in the future but one thing is for sure, EA will ensure that their servers are always filled. These bots are a work in progress and so they might not be “highly skilled” when the game launches. But EA notes that the bots will be tuned as time passes and more data comes in. “The game is still in development and the use of AI will be tuned as player data comes in,” the company said.
Hazard Zone and an unannounced game mode
Apart from All-Out Warfare, Battlefield 2042 also includes a squad-based multiplayer mode called Hazard Zone and also a third unannounced game mode. According to leaks, the unannounced game mode is called Battlefield Hub and is a fun take on multiplayer featuring remastered maps, new weapons, and new vehicles.
Battlefield 2042 releases 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.
