Today during EA Live, Battlefield 2042’s newest game mode developed by Ripple Effect, Portal Mode, was formally revealed. Portal Mode will be driven by the community and the developers of Battlefield 2042 and will allow players to create their own Battlefield 2042 modes within the game itself.
Supported by the Battlefield Portal, community and developer-created modes will appear on the portal for players to jump in and play. What’s particularly interesting is that players will be able to use armies from Battlefield 2042 and mash them up against older factions using maps, weapons, vehicles, and gadgets from their era. Confirmed for launch so far is Battlefield 1942, Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3, in addition to Battlefield 2042 is confirmed.
Players will be able to take advantage of some dev tools to make their own game mode and more content will be added over time. An example game mode shown during EA Live pitted 4 decked-out players from 2042 in helicopters against a 32-man team of German soldiers from 1942 with no vehicles with a number of other modifiers and limitations spicing things up.
Other game modes such as “VIP” “Gun Game” and “Infected”-like modes were also name dropped during the show as possible modes players could create.
