Battlefield 2042 is available now for Gold and Ultimate edition owners and has been met with mixed but mostly positive reviews, with the PC version currently sitting at 81 on Metacritic.
The majority of the community feedback so far has been favourable, however, there are reports of the Xbox Series X version being plagued by frequent crashes. Additionally, there is already a sizeable list of launch day bugs that the team are addressing – check out all the known issues here.
Whilst some of you may already be playing, for the rest of us, we were treated to a new gameplay trailer full of those, “Only in Battlefield”, moments.
If you saw a map during this trailer that you recognized, you are not seeing things. Battlefield 2042 Portal Mode will pay homage to Battlefield 1942, Battlefield Bad Company 2, and Battlefield 3.
“Portal is a love letter to the most long-standing fans of the franchise. Experience the nostalgia of past Battlefield games, combined with the cutting-edge tech of Battlefield 2042 in fights where anything can happen.”
Gauging community feedback, it’s clear that Battlefield Portal is shining bright as a highlight for many gamers, and we can’t wait to try it out for ourselves.
Battlefield 2042 releases for PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS4 and PS5 on the 12th November for Early Access purchases and the 19th November 2021 for standard editions.
