"The experience that DICE LA specifically is building is this love letter to our long-term players and fans," design director Daniel Berlin told Eurogamer last month.

In a new EA video interview, below (skip to the seven minute mark) Ripple Effect general manager Christian Grass went into a little more detail, confirming this mode will in part add classic Battlefield maps into the new game.

"One of the components of this experience we're creating is that we're adding some of the fan-favourite maps back into Battlefield 2042," Grass said. "But the entire experience, you have to wait a bit longer before we reveal what that is."

This mode will launch alongside Battlefield 2042, EA has said, on 22nd October.
