Battlefield 2042 has finally been revealed, and while there's no single-player campaign we do know that it'll be made up of three different multiplayer experiences.

The first, "All-Out Warfare" was revealed at the game's unveiling and houses the classic Conquest and Breakthrough modes, while the second, Hazard Zone, offers squad-based gameplay that DICE has been relatively quiet about - only confirming that it's not a Battle Royale.

The third pillar, though, had been under wraps ahead of the EA Play event next month, but longtime Battlefield leaker Tom Henderson may have revealed what it is.

Battlefield 2042 Will Add Remastered Maps Via A 'Hub' - Report

The last part of the game to be revealed is "a love letter to Battlefield fans and one that long-time players will feel right at home with," and Henderson has revealed that this will be a 'Battlefield Hub'.

Speaking in a new video, Henderson explains that “Battlefield Hub is going to contain remasters of maps from old Battlefield titles.”

“It’s going to be [maps] on the Battlefield 2042 engine. The movement and stuff like that is going to be exactly the same, but you’re essentially playing on a remastered map with different weapons and vehicles from past Battlefield titles.”

Henderson also notes that while most maps will be restricted to 64-players, some will allow for the 128-players available on next-gen systems, and will not use a class system.

“The Battlefield Hub is going to be the ultimate sandbox experience and is going to be the “fun” game mode. The reason [my source] has described it as a fun game mode is because they say that this isn’t necessarily going to be a competitive experience or a balanced experience. Instead, this is going to be the ultimate sandbox experience when players are just going to be able to have fun — a Battlefield 1 tank vs. a Battlefield 3 tank.”

Henderson also suggests that Hazard Zone is likely to be the game's free-to-play component.
