The Battlefield 2042 maps have become a big topic of discussion for long-time fans of this series, not just because of the Exodus short film that put a spotlight on the new areas but also the classic maps that come from older games.
EA and Ripple Effect confirmed that Battlefield 2042 will have 13 maps at launch, 7 of which are for the main game while the final 6 come from Battlefield 1942, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and Battlefield 3; and they can all be customized in Battlefield Portal.
More maps will be added to Battlefield 2042 via future updates that come with new seasons, though it’s not yet clear if these will be free or will be locked behind Season Passes so we’ll have to wait for more information.
Not many of these maps look big enough to host any potential Battlefield 2042 battle royale mode, but with multiplayer being free-to-play and the upcoming Hazard Zone game mode there's tons of fun to be had nonetheless. With crossplay on the cards too, however, there should be no problems filling larger maps with keen players.
In the meantime, here are all the maps currently confirmed for Battlefield 2042 and Battlefield Portal.
