Gamer.nl posted a review last week -in-progress: “Battlefield 2042 seems to be a distinct take on the Battlefield formula. With a futuristic twist and focus on teamwork between Specialists, this part stands proudly on its own, while the shooting remains true to previous success. Both the continuation of classic modes like the new Hazard Zone have the potential to remain interesting, the Portal element pays off especially as an ingrained remaster of multiplayer nostalgia, but the game’s life expectancy stands or falls with the service component, about which a lot is still very unclear.”
