The Battlefield 2042 trailer was revealed on Wednesday, June 9 with the official gameplay trailer being showcased at E3 on June 13. But as it’s been the case with the FPS genre for a few years now, everyone keeps asking the question: will Battlefield 2042 have a Battle Royale mode?
The game is coming to PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One on Oct. 22. The gameplay trailer showcased the game’s new weather mechanics while keeping true to its franchise fame.
Will Battlefield 2042 Have a Battle Royale Mode?
It was rumored that a Battle Royale mode would be present for the game, that is not the case as of writing. The same can be said for a campaign — something that has been a big part of the franchise for years.
Developers of the game, DICE, instead plan to focus more on its multiplayer. By the time of release, DICE plan to have PC, PS5, and Xbox Series S and X, support 128 player lobbies. While the older generation of consoles, the PS4 and Xbox One, will only support half of that at 64.
Even with no Battle Royale mode or Campaign in sight, there is belief that the release of this highly-anticipated Battlefield game could reignite the franchise’s rivalry with Call of Duty.
