Battlefield 2042 Reveal Trailer marks the return of all-out warfare in this new, unmatched, epic-scale experience
The Battlefield 2042 reveal trailer shows us an all-out war on a scale bigger than any have experienced in the FPS genre. The next generation of Battlefield is launching worldwide on October 22 for Xbox® One, Xbox® Series X|S, PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, and PC via Origin, Steam, and the Epic Games Store. EA and Dice are set to revolutionize the modern multiplayer sandbox with cutting-edge technology and supporting matches filled up to 128 players on the latest consoles (Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation®5) and PCs. Ths new added dimension is being elevated with the inclusion of real-time events that reshape the battlefield and tactical combat. Plus all-new weapons, vehicles, and gadgets.
Here’s the official word from the EA Press Release:
In Battlefield 2042, the world is on the brink. Shortages of food, energy, and clean water have led to dozens of failed nations, creating the greatest refugee crisis in human history. Among these Non-Patriated, or No-Pats, are families, farmers, engineers – and even soldiers. Amidst this crisis, the United States and Russia draw the world into an all-out war. No-Pat Specialists join both sides, not fighting for a flag, but for the future of the Non-Patriated in this new world.
Players will jump into the boots of Specialists, an all-new type of playable soldier for the franchise. Inspired by the traditional four Battlefieldclasses, Specialists will be equipped with their own unique Specialist Trait and Specialty, and will have fully customizable loadouts. As a Specialist, players will have access to a cutting-edge arsenal of weapons, equipment, and vehicles to use in battle. These powerful new tools give creative players a wealth of options as they find the perfect combination to fit their play style and outsmart and outgun opponents on the battlefield.
“Battlefield 2042 is an evolution of the franchise and embraces what our players want – the ultimate Battlefield multiplayer sandbox with intense combat and a ton of incredible, unexpected events,” said Oskar Gabrielson, General Manager of DICE. “All of us across DICE in Stockholm, DICE LA, Criterion, and EA Gothenburg have had so much fun developing this game and now it’s time to let players jump in. What they’ll find is that we’ve built three distinct, absolutely epic experiences that we think they’ll love.”
The biggest, most ambitious title in the franchise, Battlefield 2042includes:
- All-Out Warfare – the next generation of fan-favorite modes Conquest and Breakthrough, featuring the largest maps ever for the franchise and for the first time, up to 128 players*. Experience the intensity of All-Out Warfare in large-scale battles like never before on maps filled with dynamic weather, dangerous environmental hazards, and spectacular world events that see tornadoes rip across the map and sandstorms block out the sun.
- Hazard Zone – an all-new, high-stakes, squad-based game-type for the Battlefield franchise that is a modern take on the multiplayer experience that is distinctly DICE but very different from All-Out Warfare’s Conquest or Breakthrough modes.
- TO BE ANNOUNCED – the third experience, being developed by DICE LA, is another exciting new game-type for the franchise. This experience is a love letter to Battlefield fans and one that long-time players will feel right at home with. Tune-in to EA Play Live on July 22 for all the details. [via EA]
