Battlefield 2042 Release Date, Trailer, And 128 Player Matches For Next-Gen

The game for­mer­ly known as Bat­tle­field 6, has offi­cial­ly been revealed as Bat­tle­field 2042. DICE’s lat­est entry to the first-per­son shoot­er series is an all-mul­ti­play­er title, with no tra­di­tion­al cam­paign. It will be arriv­ing to PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X on Octo­ber 22nd, 2021. A reveal trail­er was also released along with first details about the game.

The trail­er, which you can check out below, shows off Bat­tle­field­’s near-future set­ting and a bunch of tools you’ll be able to use in the game. While the video does­n’t fea­ture any game­play, that will pre­miere dur­ing the Xbox E3 press con­fer­ence on June 13th. The first piece of gear you see is the wing­suit, quick­ly fol­lowed by a look at heli­copters, fight­er jets, robot­ic dogs, and more.

DICE gave GameSpot an ear­ly look at Bat­tle­field 2042, which pro­vid­ed a large amount of infor­ma­tion about the game. For some exam­ples, Bat­tle­field 2042 will be mul­ti­play­er-only, and that match­es for next-gen con­soles and PC will sup­port as many as 128 players–double that of the PS4 and Xbox One.

Since the game is set in the near future, as sug­gest­ed in the title, cli­mate change has destroyed dozens of nations. That’s caused a huge influx of sol­diers with­out coun­tries, who are pulled into a world­wide con­flict between the US and Rus­sia. Accord­ing to GameSpot a few of Bat­tle­field 2042’s maps cen­ter on con­flicts in Qatar, India, Egypt, and Antarc­ti­ca. Just to throw a few out there. You prob­a­bly caught glimpses of them in the trail­er (if you watched). 

In addi­tion to big­ger maps, match­es, and more vehi­cles, Bat­tle­field 2042 will also have extreme weath­er events that will change the tone of bat­tle. These major weath­er adjust­ments can even com­plete chaos. Towards the end of the trail­er, a huge tor­na­do can be seen pick­ing up and throw­ing objects, vehi­cles, and play­ers. DICE says that with Bat­tle­field 2042, they are look­ing to recre­ate more “Bat­tle­field moments.” With “lev­o­lu­tion” changes on the map, big play­er counts per match, and storms, it looks like Bat­tle­field moments are upon us.
