Battlefield 2042 will feature NVIDIA DLSS and Reflex

NVIDIA have confirmed that Battlefield 2042 will feature both DLSS and Reflex technology, allowing players to achieve better performance.

PC is often considered the best way to play Battlefield, and with 2042’s massive-scale and dynamic weather, you want to make sure your system can handle it. To get both stunning visuals and high frames, NVIDIA has confirmed that Battlefield 2042 will feature DLSS and Reflex support.

We’re only a few months away from Battlefield 2042’s release on October 22, and anticipation has never been higher. After a three-year hiatus, the blockbuster series will be returning with massive maps, 128 player lobbies, and dynamic weather – all “brought to life with the power of next-gen.”

DICE appears to have gone all out in developing Battlefield 2042, utilizing the power of next-gen consoles and PCs. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will be receiving their own separate smaller-scale version of the game, so we can expect the next-gen and PC version to be demanding.

Luckily, NVIDIA have announced that Battlefield 2042 will feature DLSS and Reflex support for low-latency and high frame rates without sacrificing visual quality.

The main advantage to playing FPS games on PC is a high frame rate. Some players lower their graphics quality or resolution to achieve this, but Battlefield 2042 players will be able to achieve these high frame rates while still maintaining stunning visuals.

If you have an RTX graphics card, you’ll be able to use NVIDIA’s DLSS (or Deep Learning Super Sampling) technology with Battlefield 2042. This sets your game to a lower resolution, increasing performance, but giving the appearance of high resolution. It’s the perfect combination of visuals and performance.

Warzone received DLSS support in the Season 3 update, which, according to NVIDIA, allowed for an FPS boost of up to 70% while playing Warzone at 4K. If you’re looking to play Battlefield 2042 at a high resolution while maintaining smooth performance, you’ll find DLSS extremely useful.

Battlefield 2042 will also feature NVIDIA Reflex, which allows players with anything above a GeForce 900 Series to reduce their system latency, “which enables you to be more accurate on the battlefield.”

Battlefield 2042 is shaping up to be one of the biggest games of the year, and you can check out the unrevealed game mode, expected to be ‘Battlehub’ at EA play on July 22.

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 Amiens and Bandar Desert maps

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)

Strike at Karkand Battlefield 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)

Battlefield 4 Siege of Shanghai

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.

Battlefield 2042 fans worried about Portal’s powerful ban feature

Battlefield 2042 allows custom servers to be made for free, but fans are worried that toxic admins will ruin the Portal experience.

Battlefield 2042 Valparaiso map

Battlefield 2042 fans are concerned that toxic admins will return in Portal, kicking and permanently banning players unfairly.

Custom servers are a Battlefield staple. Players could rent out their own servers and create their own map pool, rules, and custom options. Battlefield 2042 is taking this concept to the max with Portal, which allows players to change almost every aspect of the ruleset.

However, following the news that Portal admins can permanently ban players, fans are worried that “badmins” will return, kicking and banning players at will.

Absolute power corrupts absolutely, they say. This can be true in Battlefield, where “badmins” have been known to kick and ban players for even the smallest infraction. This can be extremely frustrating, especially when trying to play some of the older, less populated titles such as Battlefield 3.

On the other side of the coin, toxic players and cheaters can ruin the experience for everyone on the server and deserve to be permanently banned. Because of this, DICE and Ripple Effect are allowing admins to deliver persistent player bans in Portal, so repeat offenders won’t be able to rejoin.

But this has led to some concern in the community. Reddit user Historical_Wrap_4584 posted to the Battlefield 2042 subreddit that they’re concerned that admin abuse and “ridiculous server rules” will return in Portal. They described how they have flashbacks of being kicked for simply killing the admin, or accidentally using a banned weapon and getting the boot.

Some players suggested that Portal should feature a server review feature. Then, there will be a punishment system for toxic admins. On the other hand, malicious players could leave unfair, poor reviews on servers.

While toxic admins may always be a problem, players noted that you shouldn’t be banned for accidentally using blacklisted weapons. Portal’s in-depth customization system will allow players to block certain weapons and items, so there’s no way you’ll accidentally use something that’s banned.

As with all previous Battlefield games, it’s about finding a community and server that you enjoy playing in; you wouldn’t want to rejoin a server with a “badmin” anyway. Of course, there will be the official Portal servers, too.

Battlefield 2042 post-launch content each season will reportedly be massive

It seems Battlefield 2042 will be following the seasonal format that so many games have been taking on, with reports that it could be huge.

Battlefield 2042 seasonal content

Battlefield 2042’s post-launch seasonal content will reportedly be massive, keeping things fresh by giving players an abundance of new content to enjoy.

We have been blessed with lots of information regarding DICE’s upcoming release, especially at the EA Play Live event recently. It seems Battlefield 2042 will be offering a variety of content at launch, with the recent announcement of the Portal mode getting players most excited for its release.

In more recent news, rumors have come out surrounding the post-launch content Battlefield 2042 will offer players, suggesting it may be massive.

Battlefield 2042 seasoncal content

Battlefield 2042 will release October 22, but for those who can’t wait as long as that, be sure to check out the details for the upcoming September Open Beta.

Most recent online-based games have taken the Fortnite formula of seasonal content. This way, the game stays fresh. Instead of releasing a new title annually, players stay engaged through seasonal updates that bring new content to the game.

Battlefield 2042 Seasonal content

Battlefield 2042 will also follow this pattern, with renowned Battlefield leaker Tom Henderson reporting via DualSHOCKERS that Battlefield 2042’s season pass content will be “The Most Extensive in Series History.”

The claim is that Battlefield 2042 will bring new maps, specialists, updates, weapons, vehicles, and battle pass tiers, with some even for each mode.

This means we could potentially be seeing 3 maps per season for both All Out War and the Portal modes, with one of these maps actually being a remaster, which will be great for those dedicated long-standing fans.

Further, the seasonal content will also see new weapons and vehicles for Portal and All Out War, which means we could see between 12-16 new weapons and vehicles per season.

There is no doubt that players will be pleased to see this consistent supply of new content when each new season arrives for Battlefield 2042 if these reports come to fruition. However, these reports have not been confirmed by EA or Dice as of yet, so they should still be taken with a grain of salt at this time.

That’s all on Battlefield 2042’s seasonal content. For more, stay tuned via Charlie INTEL and check out our article on the specialists in the game.
