Battlefield 2042 has received an update from DICE enabling 64 players to play Conquest and Breakthrough on the Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC.
As spotted by our friends at Xbox Achievements, the smaller sized versions of the two modes are now available via the All-Out Warfare menu. Previously, the new-gen consoles and PC versions of the game boasted 128 player skirmishes for those modes. However, there wasn’t an option to have smaller sized matches in those modes, for more close-quarter skirmishes until now.
There’s currently no word from EA or DICE on how long this option will be available. However, the tweet does confirm the currently featured Rush playlist is sticking around in Battlefield Portal for the Holidays too.
Last week Battlefield 2042 received its 3.1 update, said to be the final major one for this year. In 2022, the development teams intend to begin work earnestly on post-launch additional live content, including Season One.
Further out, EA has been restructuring the Battlefield teams behind the scenes in order to prepare a connected Battlefield universe. This has seen the departure of former GM Oskar Gabrielson and the appointment of Respawn’s Vince Zampella as the new head of the series.
The featured Rush playlist will be staying with us in #BattlefieldPortal through the Holidays too 🎁🎄
