"Your Battlefield, Your Rules."
The Battlefield Portal is a gamemode featured in Battlefield 2042. Developed by Ripple Effect Studios, it allows players to create custom matches with a variety of gameplay options and share them with the community. Aside from content featured in the main game, the mode gives players exclusive access to maps, weapons, vehicles, and classes from Battlefield 1942, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and Battlefield 3. The mode will be supported post-launch with live-service content.
Battlefield Portal allows players to create custom matches known as "Experiences". Players may select from preset modes such as Conquest, Rush, or Team Deathmatch or create their own gamemode with specific rules and objectives. Like the main game, players have the option to use Bots as an enemy team or to fill up both teams for matches. Experiences are created upon the creation of a match and will remain active so long as they are filled with players. Players may also follow players which will allow them to receive notifications when that player is online and running matches. Official playlists will be available to make it easier for players to find the most popular matches.
Experience is obtained normally in matches and player progression is tied to the main game.
Battlefield Portal provides players with a variety of customization options for their Experience in the Creation Suite. It also allows players to give others permission to modify their Experiences with their settings. Advanced settings are available through a Logic Editor which give players options to use visual scripting logic to have more control with their Experience.
Mobility - Players are given the option to restrict players mobility to make their experience authentic to each game. This includes removing the ability to Aim, go Prone, Sprint, health regeneration, etc.
Visibility - Players have options to make Experiences similar to Hardcore mode from past installments with option such as removing the HUD or Minimap.
Player Count - Players may control the max number of players in each match or team.
Logic Editor - Gives players more advanced settings to customize Experiences such as allowing players to define rules, victory conditions, in-game action consequences, etc.
