Breakaway is a map featured in Battlefield 2042. It was first seen in the Battlefield 2042 Official Reveal Trailer (ft. 2WEI). The map takes place around a partially thawed plateau in Antarctica, the site of an petroleum extraction complex. This is the largest map of Battlefield 2042 at launch.

- The map's internal name is MP_Irreversible.
- After being spotted in the reveal trailer, the Emperor Penguins present on the map became very popular in the community, with internet memes and fanart subsequently being created in reference to them. DICE would frequently acknowledge this, retweeting multiple pieces of penguin-related fanart from the Official Battlefield Twitter account. DICE 3D artist Joel Zakrisson, who managed most of the 3D art for Breakaway and was the one who had suggested and modeled the penguins, was also interviewed in a Battlefield Briefing post regarding the map.
