Players on PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC can enjoy a 128-player experience while playing on Conquest. PS4 and Xbox One players are limited to 64 players. Each team will fight for control over objectives that are scattered around the map. Orbital is based in Kourou, French Guiana and will also dynamically change as the matches play out.

The Battlefield 2042 beta includes four game Specialists including Boris, Casper, Falck and Mackay. Each Specialist packs their own unique skillset and gear. Wikus “Casper” Van Daele, the South African Specialist, operates a recon drone that disorients enemies with EMP bursts. He also has a movement sensor that alerts him to oncoming enemies.
