Hazard Zone

Hazard Zone is a completely new way to play Battlefield, and we've seen some new footage and a trailer of the mode in action. Teams of four will drop into the Battlefield 2042 maps and attempt to collect data drives, competing with other players, computer-controlled defenders, and hazardous weather conditions. It's looking like an interesting new mode in that it takes the Battle Royale formula and twists it around to differentiate it from the games we've seen a whole lot in the last year or so. We have all kinds of information right here on Gfinity and will strive to keep you updated, so check out our guide for the Battlefield 2042 Hazard Zone game mode.

All-Out Warfare

All-Out Warfare is the game mode to choose if you're after the quintessential Battlefield multiplayer experience. Fans of Conquest and Breakthrough modes from previous games will feel right at home here, with the freedom to choose between air, land, and sea, focusing on your own objectives while helping the whole team succeed.

Conquest is the more open-ended mode of the two. With a bunch of control points dotted around the map, you can choose where and how to engage each fight. You can end up with little skirmishes or whole-team firefights with vehicles and explosions everywhere depending on the situation.

With up to 128 players, All-Out Warfare will be the first port of call for us when we boot up Battlefield 2042. Just grab your favourite Specialist and go.

Battlefield Portal

Battlefield Portal looks like an amazing platform where any Battlefield 2042 player can treat the entire series like a ridiculous sandbox. All the Battlefield 2042 maps, along with six reimagined classic maps, will be available to fiddle around with. You'll also be able to use over 40 weapons, 40 vehicles, and 30 gadgets from previous games in the series. Fully decked-out 2042 soldiers against tank-toting, Battlefield 1942 troops? That'll just be the start.

Keep up with our Battlefield Portal guide for all the information on the new game mode, as we'll be keeping you nice and up-to-date whenever we learn more. We're most looking forward to fiddling around with rulesets to make the most broken possible game modes, and it'll be interesting to see what the community comes up with.

So, that's all the Battlefield 2042 game modes so far! If you're curious about how to get hold of the game, have a look at our Battlefield 2042 pre-order versions guide, or you can learn more about the best Battlefield 2042 guns, which we'll keep updated up to and past the game's release date.
