EA and DICE plan to officially reveal the next Battlefield game in a few hours. However, EA’s Origin has just leaked its official title, screenshots, details and release date.
Here is the description for the game’s theme:
“U.S.A. and Russia stand at the brink of war. Proxy wars have waged for decades, generating experienced but displaced combat veterans. These Specialists use their skills to shape the future — a future worth fighting for.”
Battlefield 2042 will introduce 7 vast maps for up to 128* players. From Seoul’s cities to Egypt’s deserts, every map promises to offer a unique experience based on the natural environment.
Players will be able to customize weapons, gadgets and vehicles in-battle to tip the scales in their favor. Additionally, they can summon a robotic dog built for battle, employ a grappling hook or don your very own wingsuit.
Moreover, players can choose their role on the battlefield and form hand-tailored squads through the new Specialist system. Based on Battlefield’s four Classes, Specialists have one unique Specialty and Trait – but the rest of the loadout is fully customizable.
Battlefield 2042 will be using the Frostbite Engine and will release on October 22nd.
Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
