The Battlefield 2042 trailer shows the impressive evolution of the FPS series


long time no see! After countless rumors and the disappointment of “Bad Company 3”, the next step of the Battlefield series has been revealed. Grand launch of “Battlefield 2042”, this is an FPS experience set in the near future. After the refugee crisis replaces our daily life as we know it, it challenges players to become so-called non-patriots.

The non-patriot, or non-patriot for short, is not just your standard soldier. They are engineers of the world, humble farmers, and enthusiastic teachers. They can be anyone or you. They don’t fight for flags or companies. They fight for the future. You can participate in the future through this new experience that provides new game modes, larger maps, and literal tornadoes. Use your strengths.

The revealing trailer started with a loud noise—literally—because we saw an armed team exploded from the edge of a cliff, and only a few people were impressively skilled at landing. From weapons to different vehicle types, our first look is exciting and it is an incredible fulcrum compared to the previous version in Battlefield 5.

DICE pushed this shooting game to its limit by increasing the number of players on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and PC to 128. The number of PS4 and Xbox One players was reduced to 64 to maintain the experience, but the studio promised that the reduction in the number of players will not affect the overall style and feel of the game.

We also saw some experts for the first time. These playable characters have very real background stories and fewer restrictions than previous battlefield games. In the past, players could only perform certain loadings based on the selected character. This time, the restriction was lifted. Although special abilities remain locked to preserve the uniqueness of each expert, no matter who you choose, the guns that players can use are open. This works better when the battle wheel is shown. This option allows non-Pats to adjust their equipment for mid-combat. Like snipers, but suddenly find yourself in close combat? Pull up the steering wheel and close your weapon. Customize your scope. Swap out your equipment, the battle is yours-hone it.

To learn more about the multiplayer experience, including how it keeps single-player fans from getting stuck in a multiplayer-only mode model, you can check our impressions here.

As for the game itself, “Battlefield 2042” will be launched on October 22 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC players.
