Battlefield 2042: Portal was revealed at EA Play Live 2021. It's intended to be a community-driven experience where players can create their own gamemodes and change the rules freely. This is essentially the equivalent of  a custom games mode

Maps like Caspian Border and El Alamein Noshahr Canal, Battle of the Bulge and more will also be returning in Battlefield 2042: Portal.

Players can even mess with an advanced logic editor to freely modify the experience. An example shown is a gamemode where one side of players use knives and the other side uses defibrillators.

There's even an example involving an infected game-mode, which brings me back to the days of Halo 3. We also received footage of a few of the examples, like something called Robotman, which involved many tiny robots against a giant tank. Battlefield 2042: Portal will be available with the game at launch
