As if they hadn’t procrastinated enough with the showdown of the new Battlefield, they performed an unpopular thing at Electronic Arts - they scheduled the premiere of their new game in 16 hours, to then start counting down to the real premiere - an hour later.
But the cat has already escaped the bag - the game will be called Battlefield 2042 and will be futuristic-themed… with robotic dogs, among other things. Upon release, it will have seven maps, two of which are located in Egypt and Seoul. It is mentioned that up to 128 players will be in the matches at the same time, but only on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X / S. On the old consoles, the number of players will be smaller - a maximum of 64, and the maps themselves will be smaller.
The common denominator of all maps seems to be environmental destruction, in which a tornado also participates. In addition to tornadoes, there will be sandstorms. So far, three modes have been confirmed: Conquest, Breakthrough, and the new Hazard Zone. There will also be a fourth mode, developed by the American branch of DICE, and described as a "love letter" to longtime fans of the Battlefield series.
The game will use special forces, each of which has its characteristics, and the preorder gives you access to four additional special forces. There will also be the possibility of modifying weapons and vehicles during the matches themselves.
Battlefield 2042 comes out on October 15 for PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One, and Series X / S. There will be three releases: Standard, Gold, and Ultimate.
The trailer shown is full of action that won't look like that in the game itself, but don't worry - we'll soon see what the specific gameplay looks like. The screening of the gameplay is scheduled for next week, June 13.
