Battlefield 2042 has been making headlines for its focus on multiplayer, which has gotten a mixed reception from fans but when you consider how most people buy these games for the multiplayer, and the devs make new features for the multiplayer, it makes sense.
While not the worst decision in the world, the lack of single-player options in Battlefield 2042 is still a wee bit disappointing, making us wonder if spending so much money on the game and it’s Ultimate Editions is a good thing.
Does Battlefield 2042 Have Single-Player?
Though there isn’t a proper single-player campaign in Battlefield 2042, it was revealed that players can play modes like Conquest and Breakthrough with AI bots, which is the next best thing.
Admittedly, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen EA do this as the 2015 Star Wars Battlefront reboot didn’t have much of a single-player campaign either but we’re sure players who want to improve their skills will make use of this mode.
EA and DICE also revealed that AI bots will be prevalent in Battlefield 2042, even in the game’s multiplayer, since they want to fill up game spots if they aren’t complete.
Considering how there are 128 players on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X, we’re sure fans will have a hard time telling who’s an AI and who’s a real player, though that won’t matter in the end.
We’re sure EA and DICE will add single-player in their next Battlefield game, whenever that is, but fans might actually prefer a multiplayer-only game like this.
Battlefield 2042 comes out on October 22 for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
