A remake of 1942 would see a return of the worst BF map, Wake Island and thus I must decline.

e: so I guess this is the rumour they're referring to
https://www.reddit.com/r/Battlefield6/comments/meoke9/insider_leak/

the way they talk about having BF1942 stuff mixed in with BF3 stuff makes it seem like they're porting everything they ever made into the new engine which seems unlikely?

more likely you'll just have access to the frostbite era stuff with maybe some rules for 1942 mode with no sprinting or whatever

idk it all looks fake to me

The phrasing of that seems super weird, like in what context would it "contain classic maps, weapons, vehicles and more"?

Best thing I can think of is like, remade/remastered best of hits kind of thing. "Here's 1942 Wake Island in the 2042 engine with 1942 weapons, vehicles and classes. Next round up is Dragon Valley with BF2 mechanics and after that is Arica Harbor."


Actually that'd be loving incredible so it's probably not that.

When I was in the Battlefield 1942 modding scene I knew a very talented coder who, for his own fun, combined every mod he found into one Megamod. He showed me pictures of it and it had crazy poo poo like Star Wars Tie Fighters fighting Tiger Tanks with spider legs instead of tracks while an M1 Abrams ran over a medieval knight on horseback and a Pirate Galley laid down anti-aircraft fire.

DICE needs to find that guy and just publish that mod.

But yeah Battlefield 1 was great. I basically played Operations and nothing else for the games whole life. That whistle blow and like 100 dudes screaming every time a match started or a sector got won was freaking great. It was rare and definitely off meta but getting some friends coordinating in a landship mark IV could dominate a server.

We at least know the redacted game mode can't be Titan from 2142 because BF2042 is set 20 years in the future and I just can't see the technology of a floating space ship being possible that early. That would be too unrealistic for DICE, who have consistently maintained realism in the Battlefield series.

Yeah BF1 is probably tied with BC2 for my favourite. The fact that you can blow a whistle as squad leader in BF1 puts it in the lead. Let's hope they add future whistles to 2042

Also, with 128 players they're probably going to have to be really careful with things like grenades and mortars. Maybe expand the capture radius on some points and stuff? Cause in BF1 and 3 I remember some points just being relentlessly shelled and that was with a much lower player count.

What they've been saying is that conquest points are now multiple flags over an area, which will presumably work with majority giving you control but we'll see.

Schizzy to the matic

BC2 revives would pull you out of whatever menu you were in, back into the game.

So if someone on your team was a medic, but in voice chat with a squad from the other team, they could theoretically keep you from quitting the game by just killing and reviving you over and over and over.

This is how we tried to show useless snipers the error of their ways. So much glorious hatemail.

I gotta say the only thing that irks me about the Modern setting is the whole "shooting an unsilenced gun makes you show up on the mini map" thing. I loved that BF 1 got rid of the whole firing makes you show up on the mini map thing, not sure if BF V did it or not because I skipped it, and I'd hate to go back to that.

I'd like to see GOLDrush make a return with maps that are actually made for the mode and not pared down conquest maps, but this will never happen. That mode's attack/defend dynamic is some of the best battlefield, but it gets next to zero love from dice.

Yes I’m the only one in the universe who wants to play Air Superiority in BF1.

There has been an active air superiority mode recently and BF1 pilots training/practicing together to teach others which is neat

I don't know if it's still up though
