Battlefield 6 Trailer
During Bethesda and Microsoft’s combined E3 2021 briefing, EA Dice eventually gave us a peek at Battlefield 2042. The clip shows the Hourglass map of Battlefield, which is lcoated in Egypt.
Tanks fire down aircrafts, which abruptly crash into the desert in a ball of flames, while troops scurry all over the battlefield like well-armored insects. Hourglass’ neon-clad buildings are also seen in the video, with elevators enabling players to go to the upper level – and hopefully, all the stories in between, albeit that wasn’t seen. Players may zipline over roofs or use their wingsuit to fly from their new perspective point as they approach the top of these buildings.
The video also shows off Battlefield 2042’s weather effects system in action, which is sure to create havoc. The video shows a huge tornado sweeping across the Hourglass area, wreaking havoc, but these completely random world events may be a blessing or a curse for gamers. While you may try to escape the tornado by hiding in buildings, players can also use it to your benefit and annihilate their opponents.
Battlefield 6 Setting
Battlefield 2042 takes place on a planet on the verge of annihilation. Following the collapse of several of the world’s countries, food, fuel, and water scarcity have resulted in the biggest refugee catastrophe in humanity’s civilization. The “Non-Patriated” are a group of refugees formed of families, landowners, architects, and warriors who do not have any homeland now.
Russia and the United States are the only two superpowers standing, fighting to get the world’s few surviving resources. Non-Pat Specialists serve both sides to ensure that they will have a share of the resources when one of the two superpowers wins. The player will be playing as a Non-Pat Specialist, with eight different specialists to choose from.
Battlefield 2042 has been dubbed a “genuine evolution” of the Battlefield series by EA DICE.
Multiplayer Modes in Battlefield 2042
According to EA DICE, Battlefield 2042 will feature three distinct, outstanding multiplayer encounters. However, Battle Royale is not among them.
One of those experiences is All-Out War, billed as a “next-generation” of the franchise’s previous Breakthrough and Conquest modes. On Xbox Series X, PS5, and PC, this mode includes massive 128-player levels, while Xbox One and PS4 users will get 64-player variations of these maps that have been downsized for these consoles yet are bigger than previous entries. Gameplay, situations, and experiences will all be felt by Battlefield gamers on whichever platform they play on, according to EA DICE.
Conquest mode is described as a “traditional all-out battle experience” in which players will be fighting in a large area. As per EA DICE, this mode offers a lot of variety in terms of pace, with players deciding where to travel as well as how to battle. According to EA DICE, Conquest will include times with a large number of players, making the battle a little chaotic, as well as periods that are less messy and more intimate.
On the other side, Breakthrough offers a more structured event. In this multiplayer experience, one side attacks while the other defends in an effort to conquer regions, and both of the sides will fight in huge battles.
Battlefield 2042 will have two additional multiplayer modes on top of All-Out War. Hazard Zone, described as an all-new, team-based, and high-stakes game type for Battlefield, is the second of these. This is a new approach to the multiplayer game that is distinctive to DICE yet very unique from All-Out Warfare’s Breakthrough or Conquest modes, according to EA DICE. In the following months, we’ll learn more about this option.
The third multiplayer mode will be revealed on July 22 at EA’s Play event. DICE LA is creating this experience, which will be a totally new experience for the title. According to EA DICE, this third mode is a love letter for all the Battlefield hardcore fans and a mode that long-time gamers will love.
EA DICE also announced that Battlefield 2042 would feature a battle pass to every season, with both free and premium tiers, but the premium tier may probably just contain aesthetic items and not maps.
Every season, as per the creator, will advance the world’s story and offer new content. In its initial year, Battlefield 2042 will include four seasons, each including four new Specialists and new settings.
Battlefield 6 Gameplay
Battlefield 2042 is expected to rely more heavily on the sandbox gameplay than any other game in the franchise. The weather on the maps is dynamic, so gamers would have to escape (or use) tornadoes or dust storms. Battlefield 2042 also includes destructible landscapes and topography, as well as ground distortion and evolution, not to mention the “smaller methods” to engage with the world, such as lowering or raising barricades and roads to block vehicles from crossing.
New weaponry, such as the AV9, K30, and M5A3, will be available to players. Furthermore, transportation will play an important part in this title, with players having access to helicopters, fighter planes, tanks, and more – all of which may be ordered at any moment and delivered to any place. Vehicles in this title, as per EA DICE, are a foundation for excellent team play. Because each seat serves a specific purpose, adding more people to your vehicle renders it a more effective weapon.
Furthermore, due to the new ‘Plus System’ of Battlefield 2042, Specialists may modify their weapon setup anytime, allowing them to alter their sight, barrel, under type, and ammunition type while on the run. Gamers will also be able to use a wingsuit to fly off of towering buildings in the levels.
The option to experience this multiplayer game play with and against AI players is available for individuals who aren’t confident battling against actual players or wish to acquire a better understanding of Battlefield before entering into these battles. You’ll be capable of playing with both real-life and AI opponents. According to reports, AI players would scale depending on a player’s ability, and AI fights would count toward a player’s total advancement.
