It is finally here! The next Battlefield has been revealed in a stunning new trailer from EA and Dice, which has brought stunning cinematics, fast-paced action and a brief view of what's to come in the all-new Battlefield title, Battlefield 2042. Not a lot was given away during the trailer, which you can check out above, but fear not, as here at 3Bit, we have all the early details you need to know about this breathtaking looking shooter that will be sure to kickstart your heart.
Battlefield 2042 will see the world on the brink of death, shortages of food, energy and clean water have led to the downfall and destabilisation of many countries, creating what would be the greatest refugee crisis the world has ever seen, but this is only the tip of the iceberg, as as the USA and Russia also enter into an all-out war where specialist soldiers from these refugees, who will be fighting for their future in this unstable world. These refugee specialists will be playable characters with special traits that have been inspired by the traditional Battlefield classes and will be equipable with fully customisable load-outs. As a specialist, we will have access to a whole range of weapons, equipment and vehicles to use in this all-out war, in battles that are slated to "revolutionise the modern multiplayer sand box."
In Battlefield 2042, the sandbox is going to be bigger than ever, as we join battles with up to 128 players as we fight like never before. However, other players are not our only concern anymore, as dynamic weather will also change the way we fight, as we will also be facing sandstorms, tornados and much more. Unfortunately, the massive 128 players game modes will not be available for those on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as players on these consoles will only be able to play 64 player maps which will also be reduced in scale.
Unfortunately, it does not seem like we will be getting a single-player story mode for Battlefield 2042, which is a massive shame, as what EA and Dice have set as an introduction could make for an incredibly heartfelt story, which touches on many themes currently pressing our world, and could have given players something to truly remember this game by years later, much like they have done with strong campaign moments within the Call of Duty Franchise.
Battlefield 2042 will also include an all-new game mode, called Hazzard zone, which will bring high stakes Squad gameplay to the Battlefield Franchise, so gather up your team and get ready to battle in a new game mode that will move players away from the major battlefields you'd find in All -Out Warfare and Breakthrough game modes.
Battlefield 2042 is coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation4, PlayStation 5 and PC. For previous-gen console and PC players, Battlefield will be available for $59.99 (most likely the same cost in £, but no price has been given yet), but for next-gen players, you will be seeing a $10 price hike at $69.99 (again most likely the same in £). Battlefield will also be receiving Gold and Ultimate editions, each currently priced at $ 89.99 and $109.99, respectively, but once again, console players will be seeing a $10 price hike on these prices, with the gold and ultimate edition costing $99.99 and $119.99 respectively. Players who purchase Battlefield on the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One will not be able to upgrade to next-gen unless they purchase the gold or ultimate editions, which each add a range of digital content to Battlefield 2042, including 4 battle pasees and unique cosmetics.
