The first details of battlefields newest game were unveiled on 9th June 2021 along with its name, BATTLEFIELD 2042. The most notable feature of the game is, it has no single player story mode and focuses only on multiplayer. This has been reasoned by the game developers as they are “focusing on what they do best and utilising all their resources there”.

As the name suggests, battlefield’s newest game is going to take place some years in the future in contrast to its predecessor which took players back to the times of World War 2. This means futuristic content including guns, vehicles, and terrain. 

All-Out Warfare experience, fan-favorites Conquest and Breakthrough once again make their return.Using the next gen consoles features, gamers will be able to play in a lobby of 128 players in total and hash it out on the largest maps ever in franchise history.

All maps will feature dynamic weather, dangerous environment hazards and world events creating an even greater experience of war such as tornadoes capable of whipping players across the map and exploding space rockets.

The increased map size will allow Conquest matches to contain multiple smaller areas, called Sectors. Each of these Sectors will consist of a grouping of control points, filling out each map with even more battles happening concurrently during a match along with new expanded vehicle and traversal options.

Battlefield 2042 introduces new playable roles in the form of specialists. These have been inspired by the classic classes that have become a part of the franchise over the years. There are going to be a total of ten specialists at the time of launch for players to choose from with each having a unique specialty and fully customizable load outs ranging from weapons and equipment to vehicles.
