Earlier this week, Electronic Arts revealed the latest entry in the Battlefield franchise, which is called Battlefield 2042. The game will launch on October 21 and will feature support for up to 128 players on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
“Fight to define the future in a world transformed by disorder,” says EA. “For the first time in Battlefield’s history, 128 players can join the all-out war at the same time* – giving you the chance to take part in massive-scale battles where anything can happen. Get an even greater sense of spectacular, large-scale war on seven massive maps where you’ll experience ever-changing battle conditions and gameplay challenges.”
During the Xbox Games Showcase, EA showed off the first gameplay trailer. Check out the Battlefield 2042 trailer below:
As teased by the initial debut, destructive environments will take center stage and will play a key part in swinging the momentum one way or the other. The popular Conquest and Breakthrough modes from previous Battlefield titles will make a return, whilst an as-yet-undescribed Hazard Zone mode will also be on the cards. An open beta will be available at some point between now and October. Players who preorder the game on the Microsoft Store will get early access to the beta, as well as bonus cosmetics and the Baku ACB-90 knife
