In addition to the first trailer and details for Battlefield 2042’s Hazard Zone, DICE producer Amo Mostofi and design director Daniel Berlin have answered several questions about the mode in a new briefing. They noted that Hazard Zone matches can be as short as five minutes or as long as 20 minutes “based on how you play, when you choose to extract, and if you’re successful.” Hazard Zone matches are playable on all seven of the game’s launch maps.

Players will be using Specialists in each map but you can’t have more than one of the same in your squad. Each of the four must be unique. Regarding XP and how it’s doled out to the squad, everyone receives XP for the total number of data drives extracted with a bonus provided based on one’s personal performance. As for the Occupying Forces (aka AI-controlled enemies) present in a match, their behavior will be unpredictable.

“They may be roaming around the map, pursuing you, or protecting valuable resources. How many soldiers you come across varies and will depend on your actions and luck, so explore with caution.” If you die, it’s possible to spectate your squad and either use a Redeploy Uplink or Squad Redeploy Call-in. “If your entire squad bites the dust, the mission’s a failure and you lose the match. But should one member still be alive and manage to trigger a Redeploy Call-in (found in the world or purchased with DMC before a match starts), they can bring the entire team back to life.”

Regarding Dark Market Credits, which are used to purchase weapons, items and equipment, they can only be obtained through gameplay and not real money. Battlefield 2042 is out on November 19th for Xbox One, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC. Stay tuned for more details and gameplay en route to Hazard Zone’s launch.
