'In an interview with Game Rant, Ripple Effect Studios general manager Christian Grass said that Portal will offer content from multiple different Battlefield games. Players will be able to use weapons, vehicles, gadgets, and even maps from Battlefield 1942, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and Battlefield 3 to build their own creations. Better yet, all of the maps and assets from the classic Battlefield games the Portal mode pulls from have been updated for the modern era. They're reimagined in the Frostbite engine, with the map layouts kept as close to the originals as possible. In the case of maps from Battlefield 1942, destruction physics have even been added to the experience.'

'When you fire up the mode come 22nd October 2021, you will be able to select from DICE-created experiences, community-generated modes, or dive straight into the editor yourself. If you find the editing suite a little intimidating, tutorials will be on hand to help you out. One of the coolest aspects is that you can upload your custom logic, and it can then be edited by other creators. The original version isn't overwritten when that happens, however. New files are made so that every piece of logic can be accessed.'

'Inside the mode itself, Game Rant described the ability to drastically alter how the battle plays out — even down to the era of soldiers on the field. Players will select a game mode and then have the freedom to change out a variety of rules on a team-by-team basis.

'Game Rant specifically called out the ability to force a team of World War II soldiers from Battlefield 1942 to battle against the modern specialists of Battlefield 2042. There are some key limitations here, however, with players unable to mix multiple armies into the same team. Gadgets from the different eras won’t be individually balanced either, so players will need to find their own ways to balance game modes that mash up timelines.'

'Finally, there’s the Portal Rules Editor, which lets players further customize their creations with some light visual programming. Game Rant offered a few examples of how players can tweak their modes, like granting players health or swapping their weapons after getting several kills. These custom-built rulesets can be shared with the community, letting players who only love to organize a map pick up logic from someone else, perfecting their creation without needing to program anything.''

'Player-made modes will be discoverable in the Battlefield Portal menu (it's included as part of Battlefield 2042), and EA will highlight popular player-made modes and also host its own custom game types. You'll be able to host instances of your own modes, or other modes you like, either publicly or just for you and your friends. '

'Game Rant also confirmed that DICE and Ripple Effect Studios will continue to support Portal after launch, adding new content to the customization engine as it comes to Battlefield 2042’s other game modes.'
