Today, Electronic Arts and DICE announced a brand-new next-generation first-person shooter Battlefield game, Battlefield 2042. The game drops players into a near-future, all-out-war and features game-changing destruction. And, Battlefield 2042 takes action to the next level with the inclusion of real-time events, which reshape the battlefield and tactical combat.
Moreover, Battlefield 2042 includes all-new weapons, vehicles, and gadgets that give you freedom to be strategic and create memorable moments. The game launches October 22, 2021 and has been announced for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
An all-out world war
We also learned today a little bit about the story in EA and DICE’s upcoming first person shooter. As the story goes, the world is on the brink and shortages of food, energy and clean water have led to dozens of failed nations. As a result, this has created the greatest refugee crisis in human history.
Amidst this crisis, the United States and Russia draw the world into an all-out war. Gamers will jump into the boots of Specialists, an all-new type of playable soldier. Inspired by the traditional 4 Battlefield classes, Specialists are equipped with their own unique trait and specialty and have fully customizable loadouts.
As a Specialist, gamers will have access to a cutting-edge arsenal of weapons, equipment and vehicles to use in battle.
The biggest, most ambitious title in the Battlefield franchise
Both EA and DICE promise that Battlefield 2042 is not only the biggest but the most ambitious game in the series. Several new features include:
- All-Out Warfare – the next generation of fan-favourite modes Conquest and Breakthrough with up to 128 players on PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC. Experience All-Out Warfare in large-scale battles like never before on maps filled with dynamic weather, environmental hazards and world events such as tornadoes that rip across the map and sandstorms that block out the sun.
- Hazard Zone – is an all-new squad-based game-type that is very different from All-Out Warfare’s Conquest or Breakthrough modes.
- TO BE ANNOUNCED – the third experience is an exciting new game-type. EA and DICE promise this new experience will have long-time players feeling right. More details will be revealed during EA Play Live on July 22, 2021.
