Electronic Arts and DICE have released the official reveal trailer for Battlefield 2042. This trailer showcases 5 minutes of action, though it does not pack any gameplay sequences.
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.
Now what worries me here is that there isn’t any mention of a single-player campaign mode. There were some rumors suggesting that this new BF game would not have an SP mode. Furthermore, the game’s official press release does not mention any SP mode. EA describes Battlefield 2042 as a “groundbreaking first-person shooter set to revolutionize the modern multiplayer sandbox.” So yeah, things are not looking that good for all BF SP fans.
Battlefield 2042 will be using the Frostbite Engine and will release on October 22nd. You can also find the game’s first official screenshots here.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
