Battlefield Portal is 2042's secret mash-up mode
By Aron Gerencser July 22, 2021
We've been wondering about what Battlefield 2042's mysterious third mode will be ever since the game was announced back before E3.
Now, following a leak just before the official reveal at EA Play Live, Battlefield Portal has been shown off to the world with a bombastic new trailer.
Battlefield Portal is a mashup mode pulling in content from past Battlefield games, combining them all in one massive customizable sandbox powered by the community.
Six maps drawn from across Battlefield 1942, Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 3 have been fully remastered in the new game's engine and made compatible with Levolution mechanics and 128-player lobbies.
The content included in Battlefield Portal also extends to weapons and vehicles seen in these older games.
Players are given a huge amount of control over the various rules, objectives and mechanics of the game modes playable via Battlefield Portal with the Battlefield Builder utility.
Battlefield Builder is a sort of drag-and-drop rudimentary game design program that lets you create custom scenarios within Battlefield Portal for anyone to play.
You don't need to own Battlefield 2042 to access Battlefield Builder and publish your game modes - but you do in order to play them.
Battlefield 2042 will launch on October 22.
