Battlefield 2042 Review – Total Chaos

Battlefield 2042 on PC

It feels like playing Battlefield 2042 that it’s trying to be the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate of the series. As long as you don’t miss the campaign, “everyone is here.” OK, maybe not everyone or everything is here, but a lot of what fans have wanted over the years has been put into Battlefield 2042 and a solid foundation. DICE should be able to easily support for many years already established.

Battlefield 2042 is a fully multiplayer competitive experience. The team decided to scrap the campaign to focus their full attention on making multiplayer as dynamic and powerful as possible. While DICE has proven they can deliver good – even great – campaigns at times over the years, I have to imagine that they can take any data they collect into consideration. got about the number of people who played the campaign compared to the effort/cost to put those campaigns together and decided it was best to cut it for Battlefield 2042.

If that’s the case, I can’t blame them. It’s not possible to tell a story through a multiplayer experience these days, and while Battlefield 2042 hasn’t really done much of that yet, they can certainly be rolled out as seasonal updates roll out. . The expectation then for many fans will be everything Battlefield 2042 do brought to the table will be pounded. And honestly, it’s beautiful, rather beat for the most part.

Battlefield 2042 has three main game modes: All Out Warfare, Hazard Zone and Portal. All Out Warfare is where you’ll go to get your traditional Battlefield experience in 2042.

If you’re playing on console or next-gen PC, you’ll play conquest and breakout with up to 128 players across vast maps featuring a variety of tanks, jets, ships, and other vehicles. Another APC of the future. Likewise, your Specialists, whose character types included ten at launch and will be expanded later, are also complete with cutting-edge technology and perks.

What’s really great about Battlefield 2042 is the amount of customization you have to your soldier and the payload even with the class-like structure. Unlike previous games, you are not limited to certain weapons depending on the role/expert you choose. Attacking characters can use snipers, Recon characters can use ARs, etc. Each gun is available to every Expert. The same goes for other devices and devices.

What’s unique to Professionals is a unique perk each Expert has and a perk. They give you a bit of flavor and push you into a certain gameplay, but there’s still a lot of room for creativity. If you want to play Casper, a Recon character with a Drone that can survey the battlefield, as an aggressive Assault-like character, choose it. I’ve never felt that the addition of experts, a dramatic change to the series, has overshadowed the core combat the series is known for.

Speaking of which, Battlefield plays, looks and sounds great. At its best, the action sequences are fast-paced, frenetic and will envelop you in an atmosphere that only the craziest action movies can match. Base players to jump from skyscrapers, while planes engage in aerial combat, to engage in a ground battle that may involve tanks, jeeps, rockets, dogs Attack robots and all kinds of other tools of futuristic war. In the middle of the action, some kind of disaster, such as a tornado, can strike and make things even more chaotic and hilarious.

However, there are some issues that can get in the way of all formidable fighting. Responding can be really difficult at times, with enemy players appearing right behind you or you being deployed right in front of someone waiting to turn you on. The maps also really Big, sometimes engaging but can also lead to having to run a lot around a quiet area trying to find someone to shoot in the face.

Also, I was a bit worried at first about the amount of bugs and visual glitches present in the earlier builds of Battlefield 2042 that I played before release. However, the game has stabilized a lot since fans can get their hands on it, and hopefully in the coming weeks DICE will be able to beat the rest.

If you’re looking for something a little different in Battlefield 2042, Hazard Mode is well worth a try. To begin with, show that the Danger Zone is Not a battle royale mode. It has some similar elements like multi-team versus squad gameplay, convergence points, and permanent eliminations. It does, however, infuse a bit of Divisional Shadow into the formula along with a reloading system reminiscent of something like Counter-Strike or Valorant. Be clear about that mess.

A typical match in the Danger Zone goes like this. You and ideally three friends line up and get a chance to assemble your payload. You have to spend a new currency called Dark Market Credits, earned in-game, to upgrade your loadout beyond anything from the base load. This is your only chance to do so, you won’t get another chance in the game. The thing is, I find this a bit problematic, at least from a new player perspective. If you’re not very good at Danger Zone, I can see new players having a hard time competing with players who are successful in doing Danger Zone objectives, getting Market Credits dark and have a big bank to buy the best equipment.

Once you load it in, the point of the Danger Zone is to find and extract the Data Drive. They are scattered randomly on each map, and when you have at least one, you can choose to mine and “win” the two mining opportunities that take place in each game. The more Data Drives you extract, the more Black Market Credits you will get to make future games even more fun.

Of course, you’ll run into enemy teams looking to eliminate their opponents and steal any data drives you have on you since you dropped them when you’re down. However, even if you are killed, if at least one of your team is still alive, you can find and use redeploys scattered across the map to bring back one team member for each member you find. That person will then return to the game via airdrop with their original load intact.

The battle of the Danger Zone is going very intense. Teamwork is a must and gunfights will be in full swing around the mining area with multiple teams focused on a single point trying to hold off enemy teams until air transport their arrival and take them out with the Data Drive in hand. As long as one person on your team is alive, the team wins. If your team is wiped out or can’t be unpacked, it’s a loss and you get nothing but the defeat of the team. Credit in the dark market for every kill you get.

Hazard Zone has a great platform. At launch, not knowing how the economy will play out, I’m a bit worried about experienced teams just rolling on top of normal teams with weak payloads and low credits. However, I may have overestimated the issue and/or it wouldn’t be impossible for DICE if they felt the need to tweak things. What’s more important is that Hazard Zone is already incredibly fun, intense, tactical and playable.

Finally, perhaps the most interesting mode is the Portal. I have no deep roots in Battlefield. I’ve been trying for years, but only really invested with Battlefield 1 and some newer entries. However, I don’t have to be a Battlefield historian to know that a game mode allows you to customize your dream match with your choice of weapons, troops, and maps on several The most popular game of the hit series.


During my time working with Battlefield, I got to taste some of the custom game modes that the developers have put together such as VIP assassination mode, rocket and knife only, and Bad action only. Classic Company 2 uses Rush rule. You can even do things like muscle support specialists from Battlefield 2042 against the Wehrmacht hordes. It’s a total sandbox and on top of that it allows for private servers and customizable map orders. It is absolutely no problem from my vantage point and the Portal has amazing potential as long as DICE continues to support it and hopefully expands on it. Even at launch, it is great.

All in all, Battlefield 2042 is an stellar endeavor and is packed with loads of competitive multiplayer content at launch with more planned in the near future. There are some technical issues like respawns and visual glitches to work out and some game modes and the pros might need some tweaking, but DICE is off to a great start and Battlefield 2042 can will be relevant and popular for many years to come.
