Battlefield players reveal the maps they’d like to see in Battlefield 2042 Portal
Battlefield players have been discussing the fan-favorite maps from the popular franchise they’d love to see return through 2042’s Portal mode.
Battlefield Portal is bringing six classic maps to 2042 for players to create their own custom games with, and the community has been discussing what maps they want to see added in the future.
Before Battlefield 2042 was officially revealed, fans were hoping for either a Battlefield 3 remake or even the next installment of the Bad Company franchise. Instead, we got Battlefield 2042, set in the near future, and Battlefield Portal.
Portal takes remastered maps, weapons, and equipment from previous Battlefield games and mixes it with 2042’s content. Players can then create their own unique, custom game modes using this wide range of assets.
Excited about the map remakes, Battlefield fans have been discussing the maps they’d like to see added in the future.
Strike at Karkand (Battlefield 2/3)
Rush has been neglected by DICE in the last couple of titles, but according to user RunawayAce, Strike at Karkand was “an amazing Rush map.” Originally featured in Battlefield 2, Karkand became all the more popular thanks to its remaster in BF3.
This map sees players fight through the claustrophobic streets of a wartorn, Middle-Eastern city. With plenty of lanes to hold and flanking routes, it will always be remembered as one of the all-time great Rush maps.
Bandar Desert (Battlefield 3)
Battlefield Portal is already receiving Caspian Border and Noshahr Canals from BF3, but players are keen to see Bandar Desert. Reddit user Kermit-Jr began the discussion on July 27, and this is the first map they listed.
Bandar Desert is the second-largest map in Battlefield history (until 2042 releases) and was added in the Armored Kill expansion. This map sees players fight around a bay surrounded by a desert landscape, with plenty of POIs to focus the action.
Grand Bazaar (Battlefield 3)
Grand Bazaar is another fan-favorite BF3 map that players want to see in Portal, as suggested by user Handymandeluxe. Similar to Metro, this is an extremely chaotic, close-range map that was perfect for Rush.
Another user, CharlieTwo-Five, suggested that it should be expanded similar to Operation Metro in BF4.
Siege of Shanghai (Battlefield 4)
Almost every Battlefield fan will remember Battlefield 4’s reveal when the skyscraper in Siege of Shanghai collapsed. This was one of the maps to take advantage of levolution fully, so it makes sense that Battlefield players want to see it again.
You could either take close-range action in the streets or snipe players from the many skyscraper rooftops. This was a true sandbox Battlefield experience and could only be improved with Portal’s new features.
Amiens (Battlefield 1)
While most of Battlefield 1’s maps took places in the trenches of France and the deserts of Egypt, Amiens took players to the city streets. With Portal’s larger player count, Kermit-Jr wants to see this map expanded to accommodate it.
DICE hasn’t announced that they’ll be bringing over any content from BF1, but with fans already wanting to see it, hopefully, it’ll be added later on.
Players also suggested many other maps, such as those from the original Battlefield Bad Company and even 2142.
