Developer/publisher Electronic Arts (DICE) Format PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series Origin Sweden Release October 22

We didn’t expect to come away from this summer’s EA Play excited about a new game mode. Yet Portal, from Ripple Effect Studios (formerly DICE LA), offers a potent combinatio­n of nostalgia and innovation, letting players design their own game types by mixing and matching elements from three previous entries (1942, Battlefiel­d 3 and Bad Company 2) with those of the new game. Across six classic maps and seven new ones, you can redefine the rules of engagement: perhaps you’ll pit a team equipped with knives against a squad wielding defibrilla­tors, or deploy a group of EOD bots against a WWII tank.
