Ahead of tonight's EA Play event, details have leaked on the Battlefield 2042 mode being developed at Ripple Studios that had previously been billed as a "love letter to fans", with Battlefield Portal introducing a powerful level editor that reintroduces classic maps and lets players tinker with them as they please.
The details come via a now-deleted article on Game Rant, which revealed maps from Battlefield 1942, Battlefield 3 and Battlefield Bad Company 2 will feature, alongside the armies and factions from those games and a selection of their arsenal. Players will be able to mix and match elements - so it's possible, it's said, to pit WW2 soldiers against Battlefield 2042's all-new specialists.
Players will be able to adjust settings, and there's also mention of an in-depth logic editor which allows more granular adjustments.
Battlefield Portal will launch alongside Battlefield 2042 and will be updated as part of the live service - and it'll be joined by the as-yet-to-be-leaked Hazard Zone mode alongside the All-Out-War mode we've already had a glimpse of. We should find out more in the immediate wake of the EA Play event taking place at 6pm BST tonight.
