Although the online aspects of games such as Battlefield and Call of Duty are the game’s bread and butter, many gamers, myself included do enjoy a good campaign, but will Battlefield 2042 have a campaign?
Sadly Battlefield 2042 does not have a campaign, or at least not one that will be shipped out at launch, so if you’re after an FPS with a campaign, then you might want to skip Battlefield this year, in favor of COD.
That being said, there has been no confirmation yet as to whether we will see one in a future update or DLC, and whilst the popularity of campaigns has gone down in these types of games, there are still plenty of people out there that buy the games just for their campaigns.
What if I don’t Like Multiplayer?
There are not many options here if you don’t like multiplayer games, currently, the game does use AI to fill up lobbies when needed.
While some users have reported that the games have had more bots than they would have liked, this still isn’t single player.
Battlefield 2042 unfortunately doesn’t offer much in the way of single-player gameplay. “Battlefield 2042 is a multiplayer-only experience,” EA says. “So while you can play Solo against AI Soldiers if you’d like to practice, it will be in an online setting.”EA Games
How to Play in Solo or Co-op
You can however flip the game mode to solo & co-op, which allows you to practice the game modes with just bots, and some friends if you like as well.
But even on the higher difficulty, this doesn’t pose too much of a challenge and is better used as a way to practice before taking on multiplayer games.
The solo mode is a great way to practice using some of the game’s vehicles, flying jets or helicopters can be a challenge in Battlefield, and one that’s better being learned in a single-player experience.
If you’re new to the multiplayer aspects of Battlefield you can also use the solo games as a way to learn the multiplayer game mechanics as well as the maps, giving you a chance to do so, without the pressure of other players.
There is also the Battlefield portal now, which allows players to not only play some of the older maps, but also created their own game experience, which would allow for you to make some smaller, less populated games, but still not fully offline.
If we hear any updates on potential future Battlefield 2042 campaigns, we will of course update this post as soon as we get the news.
