Setting out to provide a near-future, all-out-war experience, EA and DICE announced today that Battlefield 2042 will launch on October 22, 2021.
Fan-favorite modes like Conquest and Breakthrough will make their return, and will feature the largest maps the franchise has seen so far. Dynamic weather, environmental hazards, and sandstorms that block out the sun are just some of the hazards players will have to overcome. New to the game is the Hazard Zone, an all-new, high-stakes, squad-based game-type.
This title will support up to 128 players on the latest consoles and PCs, and will include real-time events that reshape the battlefield and tactical combat.
