EA’s upcoming Battlefield 2042 title has been confirmed to be a massive multiplayer experience with a 128-player lobby. No doubt they'll want to be testing that early so watch out for any Open Beta details as they arrive. However, EA has also announced - along with pre-order details - that there won’t be any single player campaigns on release. Is there any way to play Battlefield 2042 offline?
Playing Solo Is Possible
According to the developers, players who aren’t big on multiplayer has a chance to run a whole game on their own. The other players in the room will be filled in as bots. All-Out Warfare is confirmed to have this feature which allows new players to get used to Battlefield 2042’s maps and controls before jumping into actual multiplayer mode.
However, the developers didn’t confirm if this feature can be accessed when internet connections are down. We’ll have to wait if this single-player mode can played offline or is also an online-only feature.
Bots Vs Players
Aside from playing solo, it’s also possible to squad up against bots with friends. The offline capability of this feature is not yet known if players can play each other if a Local Area Network(LAN) connection is established. For now, we’ll have to wait for more details on how extensive will this bots mode will be.
No Campaign On Release
Battlefield 2042’s developers have explained that the title will not have a campaign mode. Aside from playing multiplayer game modes, campaign missions are mostly the offline content of any first-person shooter title out in the market. Without the campaign, players are left guessing if the game can be played offline.
The developers also note that they’ve dropped investing development on the campaign to focus on making a great multiplayer experience. Nevertheless, Battlefield 2042 has its own rich story as seen on the lore on the official site. It’s possible that the political conflict in the backdrop of Battlefield 2042 could reach its conclusion if the campaign comes in late or the developers tell the game’s story in a different way.
