'Battlefield 2042' Is Always Online, Even When Playing Solo Against Bots

The next entry in the long-running Battlefield series, Battlefield 2042, has already stated its intention to be a multiplayer-only experience. Now, we also know that EA's shooter requires a constant online connection in order to be played - even if the user is participating against bots.

As picked up by PSU.com, and previously at VG247, a recent update from EA regarding Battlefield 2042 has confirmed that no player will be able to just play against bots in an offline mode. The developer and publisher stated, in a blog, that while AI soldiers can be used for practise matches in co-op play - "a great option to learn the mechanics ... without the pressure and competition that comes with multiplayer" - the game will always need to be online.

In a Q&A-styled post, the blog entry answers the "Can I play offline?" question as follows:

"Battlefield 2042 is a multiplayer-only experience. So while you can play Solo against AI Soldiers if you'd like to practice, it will be in an online setting." And that's all she wrote.

In the game's 128-player lobbies, bots will be used to flesh-out the numbers; but they will not be an option if you want to disconnect your PC or console from the internet and enjoy some target training offline. These AI soldiers will only ever be the most basic of variety, and cannot be Specialists; and nor can they use all the same abilities as human players. Cannon fodder, then. (Speaking of which.)

In entirely related news, a Battlefield game that isn't 2042 is being made free to download very, very soon; and classic maps are going to be a part of one of 2042's various multiplayer modes. Battlefield 2042 releases for Xboxes and PlayStations and PC on October 22, 2021.
