Portal will support maps up to 128 players. You will be able to add any Battlefield Portal maps into the rotation and choose between small, medium and large variants of existing maps. You can also pick a smaller map and crank it to 128 players if that's your preference. If you want to take the Noshahr Canals: Container Area map with 128 players, go ahead.


In total, Portal will have over 75 weapons available at launch. You’ll have the ability to manage what weapons are available. If both teams are from the same era, you can also make use of our unlink teams function to customize exactly which weapons each team is gaining access to.

As for vehicles, there are On/Off toggles for Vehicle Health Regeneration, and whether or not a player can exit a vehicle once they’ve jumped in, as well as Multipliers for Vehicles Spawn Delay, its Maximum Health, and the Vehicle Health Regeneration Rate.

  • Conquest Large
