Battlefield 2042 developers reveal the reasoning behind AI bots being included in the multiplayer experience.

The hype is real surrounding DICE’s FPS franchise as of recent, with Battlefield 2042’s gameplay reveal just last week showing players just how epic the latest installment will be.

As well as some gameplay, the devs have also discussed the map scale, vehicles, and even specialists that will be available at launch. It seems players are now getting more information on the Battlefield 2042 AI bots used in the multiplayer experience through the latest developer briefing.

EA posted a developer blog just last week concerning Battlefield 2042’s content. From the difference between next-gen and last-gen to the Specialist’s players will be using, the devs gave us quite a lot of information concerning the multiplayer experience.

One aspect of Battlefield 2042’s multiplayer that fans seem to have overlooked is the use of “AI Soldiers,” who will be joining online players in the fight across the variety of maps.

Players will experience a huge scale of war in Battlefield 2042, with massive maps, player counts, and even gigantic weather systems.

With all that being said, the huge 128 play count on next-gen won’t just be online players, as the developers touched on why they will be using bots, or as they call them, AI Soldiers.

“Also new is the introduction of AI Soldiers (Artificial Intelligence) to the series. As a multiplayer-only experience, it’s important for us to let you play Battlefield 2042 when and how you want. Here is what that looks like in the All-Out Warfare experience of Conquest and Breakthrough:

  • Multiplayer – AI soldiers are used for server-filling capabilities, ensuring your matches remain full, no matter your location.
  • Co-Op – Allows you to play together with friends, against AI soldiers.
  • Solo – If you wish to perfect your skills for multiplayer, you can even play alone against AI soldiers.”

It seems the developers have implemented Battlefield 2042 AI bots to help fill servers to ensure “your matches remain full.” Cleary, the massive play count, is a problem if you’re playing on a server when there aren’t enough players.

This is a great way to keep players satisfied and prevent a feeling of emptiness in the huge Battlefield 2042 maps. Further, AI bots will also be used in Co-Op, allowing you and your friends to team up and fight against bots for fun.

The developers have even thought about those solo players who wish to play on their own, as the AI Soldiers will also be available for the solo players to “perfect” their skills and get ready for the online experience.

As well as helping to fill servers, the AI bots will serve more purposes in Battlefield 2042 to allow for a variety of ways for players to enjoy the game.

Call of Duty players want a Battlefield Portal inspired mode in the future

After FPS fans were blown away by Battlefield Portal’s reveal, Call of Duty fans want to see a similar mode in the future.

Battlefield Portal and Modern Warfare 2

Battlefield 2042’s REDACTED mode was finally announced at EA Play: Battlefield Portal. This is a hub for content from previous Battlefield games, and Call of Duty players want to see a similar mode in the future.

Like Battlefield, Call of Duty has depicted various theatres of war over the years, both real and fictional. Although Battlefield 2042 is set in the near future, as a throwback for long-time fans of the franchise, they’ve included Battlefield Portal.

This brings weapons, maps, vehicles, and more from Battlefield 1942, Bad Company 2, and Battlefield 3 into one, ultimate sandbox experience. Impressed with the new mode, Call of Duty fans have been asking for a similar experience.

Call of Duty fans have been desperate for remasters of their favorite games from the franchise, with Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer being the most prominent. Black Ops Cold War is chock-full of maps from Black Ops 2, but players still want to see more content from the games they grew up with.

Battlefield 2042 found the solution to this with their new Portal mode. With access to a ton of content from previous Battlefield games, players can create almost any custom game mode they can dream up.

“And that’s how you incorporate remastered content into your game,” said renowned industry insider Tom Henderson after seeing the reveal. He followed this by theorizing that Call of Duty will create something similar in the “next 5 years.”

His theory was met with resounding excitement, with many Call of Duty players wanting to see their favorite multiplayer and Zombies experiences return in the same way.

Battlefield Portal “truly could be the next BIG THING for creators,” said popular YouTuber Chaosxsilencer. “Imagine a Call of Duty Portal with BO2, BO3, WaW, MW2, MW3 assets all usable and customizable.”

“The custom game options available with #BATTLEFIELD2042 and the Battlefield Portal are amazing. So many options and ways to be creative and have fun,” said Call of Duty news account ModernWarzone. “@RavenSoftware we need things like this in Warzone, especially with Battlefield announcing this today.”

With how extensive of a backlog Call of Duty has, it’s very likely that Activision will take inspiration from Battlefield’s exciting new mode – and the demand for it is certainly there.

If you can’t wait to play Battlefield 2042, you can check out how to get access to the Open Beta in September.
