First details on the 7 launch maps revealed by EA.

The names and first details on the 7 launch maps shipping with Battlefield 2042 were just revealed. And before you go off about how there's "only 7 maps" you have to understand this: These maps are large, very large.

According to JackFrags, the scale of the maps is impressively large with at least one, Breakaway, being about the same size as PUBG's Vikendi map. And how big is Vikendi? It's 5.9km2. So, we're looking at maps that are as large as battle royale maps in other titles. They're big. They're very big. This makes sense given that they're made to support 128 player battles on modern hardware.

In Conquest and Breakthrough game modes, each map will be broken up into capture areas that are further broken down into multiple sectors. A team must seize control of all sectors within a capture zone in order to secure it.

And with that, let's take a look at each of the maps.
