Battlefield 2042 is going to be an insanely big multiplayer game, given how the PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X versions will have 128-player games, so fans are expecting big maps to play on.
We aren’t sure how big these maps are going to be but with rumors of a free-to-play version coming, likely so they can fill that 128-player quota, it’s clear that EA and DICE want this to be one of the most-played video games for the holiday season.
Where Are The Battlefield 2042 Maps In Real Life?
Still, say what you want about EA and DICE, but they do care about getting accurate real-life locations, though not actually naming them on the game itself.
Thanks to the PlayStation Blog, we now know which countries and real-life locations that Battlefield 2042’s maps are based on, along with what players will be doing in these maps.
Kaleidoscope [Sogdo, South Korea]
This cityscape features dense roadways and skyscrapers that can be explored, or if you’ve got a wingsuit, leaped off. It’s here that a tornado that dwarves the glittering buildings will make its presence known.
Manifest [Brani Island, Singapore]
Supply lines are under threat in this key location for global trade.
Orbital [Kourou, French Guiana]
Players will battle in the shadow of a towering space rocket pad that’s counting down to an imminent launch.
Discarded [Alang, India]
Clash around, through and on top of massive ship hulks and the surrounding cranes.
Renewal [Eastern Desert, Egypt]
Wrestle for control of an agriculture technology centre in the Egyptian Desert.
Hourglass [Doha, Qatar]
An approaching sandstorm will shift the tide of war taking place at the heart of a city.
Breakaway [Queen Maud Land, Antarctica]
From hot deserts to icy landscapes: oil and gas are the key resources being fought over here. Insert on the mountaintops with a wingsuit and you can dive into industrial buildings below.
