Battlefield 2042’s Portal Lets You Remix Classic Battlefield in Insane Ways


Recommended Posts

There is a sequence in the reveal trailer for Battlefield Portal where an army equipped only with medical defibrillators faces off against a battalion brandishing tiny utility knives. They clash at a control point, beating each other down with their limited munitions, probably cursing whatever commanding officer sent them to the frontlines with such a limited arsenal. It is obscene, it is absurd, and it is absolutely hilarious. Battlefield, as a franchise, has always thrived in moments of deranged chaotic overkill; who among us has not nosedived our fighter jets directly into an enemy tank? But Portal, which is one of the three marquee modes launching with Battlefield 2042, is the first time DICE has leaned into the wondrous farce all the way.




This is insane. I'm starting to think EA might not mess this up. I've played every BF PC game since 1942 and I'm super excited about the BF1942 maps. El Alamein!

This goes beyond what I would do on my Tactical Ops: Assault on Terror clan server back in the day.  Sometimes I would set it for knives only, which sometimes was a lot of fun.  There was one close quarters style map where I set it to only allow Desert Eagles and grenades.   I could set each map to have it's own load out, or do it on the fly through the admin panel while in game just to freak out the pubs.


Oh...the fun of dedicated servers.

Lmao I enjoyed those trailers. "Not enough memes? Fine."


Definitely has potential, and I'm even more interested since Bad Company content is included. As I've probably said before, it's very rare that I look forward to a game that hasn't come out yet because I've become so cynical towards new AAA titles and preorder deals - but I think this is one of those times.
