Battlefield 2042 Review: Characters Features and Graphics

Basic information of Battlefield 2042

  • Battlefield 2042 is the next edition in the FPS series. As far as innovation is concerned, the game developers have done a fantastic job. But, the gameplay mechanics could definitely have been better. The game sees some new additions in the form of Hazard Zone and Battlefield portal. The graphics of the game are quite impressive. We will talk about the game in detail in this blog post.
  • If you are curious to know more about Battlefield 2042 in terms of characters, features, and graphics, read on.
  • In this blog post, we will review Battlefield 2042 in terms of characters, features, and graphics. So, let’s begin.

Battlefield 2042 Review: Features

  • This online multiplayer shooter game boasts huge maps and permits up to 128 players (64 for PS4/Xbox One) to run all across them. As far as scale is concerned, Battlefield 2042 does not disappoint. You can pause and watch tanks zooming across or helicopters buzzing above. The scale is sure to impress you.
  • The number of maps available at launch is 7. Some of the maps in the game include Kaleidoscope, Manifest, Orbital, Discarded, and Hourglass. Kaleidoscope is the best among the rest.
  • However, there is one problem area that developers should have noticed and that is the core shooting. It does not blow our minds. For example, automatic guns have a high angle of bullet spray which makes it difficult to shoot accurately. Long-range weapons, on the other hand, do a lot better than their automatic counterparts. However, shooting enemies becomes a tedious job for the huge amount of time that it takes.
  • Maps are huge and allow free running but they also make warzones feel barren. You will literally have to scout for an enemy to kill.

  • The three separate multiplayer experiences that Battlefield 2042 will offer at launch are All-Out Warfare, Hazard Zone, and Battlefield Portal. The first one allows you to have a relatively more traditional experience where you can play either of the two modes – Conquest and Breakthrough. You can explore large maps in All-Out Warfare and witness dynamic weather, catastrophic environmental hazards, and so much more.
  • Hazard Zone is a new mode that has been introduced to the franchise. In this zone, you will belong to a team of 4 and when you land on the map, you must get the maximum number of Data Drives. You will be pitted against other teams who also have the same objective as you. They will also have the same escape route option as you. Consider the data drives worth points that will help you unlock new weapons, gadgets, and many other things.
  • Battlefield Portal permits you to create your own modes. You will have access to various maps, weapons, and vehicles from other Battlefield titles.
  • Other features that Battlefield 2042 offers are a grappling hook, hot-swappable attachments, and environmental physics and weather.
  • As far as vehicles in Battlefield 2042 are concerned, they will emphasize more on team collaboration. The vehicles will also feature individual seats suitable for a specific job such as gunner seats, spotters’ seats, and others.

Battlefield 2042 Review: Characters

  • Battlefield 2042 has a big change and that is instead of squad classes, it has a Specialist system. Specialists are in fact soldiers with unique abilities. The Specialist system shifts focus away from a collaborative playing style to a solo playing style, at least as far as most of the specialists are concerned. You can expect 10 specialists overall. Four of them are as follows:

Wikus “Casper” Van Daele

Forte – OV-P Recon Drone

Characteristic – Movement Sensor

Webster Mackay

Forte – Grappling Hook

Characteristic – Nimble

Maria Falck

Forte – S21 Syrette Pistol

Characteristic – Combat Surgeon

Pyotr “Boris” Guskovsky

Forte – SG-36 Sentry Gun

Characteristic – Sentry Operator

Battlefield 2042 Review: Graphics

  • The developers have released the open beta version of Battlefield 2042 and the game’s graphics are quite impressive on PC at 4K/Ultra.
  • We played the beta version of the game with the NVIDIA RTX 3080 and the framerates that the gameplay ran on were between 54fps-70fps. We could play just fine.
  • In the visuals department, Battlefield 2042 will surely give other games a run for their money.
  • If you want to improve the overall performance of the game, you can even adjust the graphics settings as per your preferences.

Battlefield 2042: Verdict

  • We are unable to give the game a high score because of the gameplay mechanics that fall short at places. But, we are quite impressed by the graphics. Although Battlefield 2042 did not quite live up to the expectations of players, it certainly is playable. With maps, specialists, and new features, the developers deserve at least a pat on their backs.
