Battlefield 2042 is a first person shooter developed by DICE and published by EA.
It is set in the near-future, where the world has been brought to the brink of war due to climate change.
The multiplayer-only shooter shows off its high-octane action and dynamic and fast-paced matches in a new gameplay trailer.
Not only is Battlefield 2042 wasting the potential of its setting by dropping the single player component, it's also exacerbating the issues with its price.
The rumored "Battlefield Hub" could be the "love letter" to fans that DICE LA is working on, according to insider Tom Henderson.
Here are all the most significant details DICE and EA have revealed about Battlefield 2042.
Based on the Assault, Medic, Support, and Recon classes, these four playable Specialists are each going to have unique gadgets and attributes.
The playtest will be conducted in a grey box environment with the purpose of collecting feedback from a group of Battlefield veterans.
While PS5 and Xbox Series X/S will have large-scale maps for up to 128 players, the game's PS4 and Xbox One versions will have smaller variants of maps for a maximum of 64.
Taking a page out of Ubisoft's book, DICE says Battlefield 2042 – set in a world brought to the brink by climate change – has no social commentary.
Each map supports 128 players on current-gen consoles with locations ranging from Antarctica to South Korea and Singapore.
"The experience that DICE LA specifically is building is this love letter to our long-term players and fans," says Battlefield 2042 design director Daniel Berlin.
"We're going to put all that emphasis and all those resources into building depth into the multiplayer," says Battlefield 2042 design director Daniel Berlin.
