If Call of Duty has a rival, it would be the Battlefield franchise. Started by Battlefield 1942 in 2002, the series has been primarily handled by DICE, a subsidiary of Electronic Arts. In recent years, both franchises, Call of Duty and Battlefield, have seen a dip in the quality of the games they produce. There is a myriad of reasons behind this like corporate meddling, over-promising, and such. But these games continue to survive despite that.
Battlefield saw its recent installment with Battlefield 2042 on November 19, 2021. Developed by DICE as always, using their proprietary Frostbite engine, it was highly marketed by EA as the next “big” game in the series. Unfortunately, Battlefield 2042 tanked hard in the market. The reason? Bugs. A lot of them. Other things like gameplay changes and specialist systems among other things too were cited as one of the reasons behind its negative reception. However, DICE has tried to make the game more playable after its release and plans to release more post-launch content to enhance the player experience. One gameplay element that many players are curious about in Battlefield 2042 is if they can play the game offline with bots. So, is that possible? Let’s find out!!
Can You Play Battlefield 2042 Offline With Bots?
Battlefield 2042 has a lot of changes in it. Some of which are not good, to be honest. For starters, it doesn’t feature a campaign mode. This one is strictly multiplayer only. For a franchise that was built on campaigns and multiplayer, leaving out an integral part of it seems an odd choice. Because it is a multiplayer-only game, it is impossible to play it offline. As you need to be connected to the internet for the game to load your profile, you can only enjoy it in multiplayer.
Although you can play the game with bots, it requires you to be online. If you want to play it that way, go to Change Gamemode > Solo & Co-op > Choose Conquest or Breakthrough. After that select your AI soldier level and map. Press play and wait for the game to load with your teammates. So, the verdict here is that you cannot play Battlefield 2042 offline with bots.
