With the official Battlefield reveal mere minutes away, it appears that even more information about the game has leaked.
First, as per the rumours circulating for the past 48 hours, it appears confirmed that the official title will be Battlefield 2042. On top of that, the cover art and some screenshots leaked through the Origin Store.
Further according to the leaks, Battlefield 2042 will launch with 7 maps which will support up to 128 players. Players can also customize weapons, gadgets, and vehicles during combat. The game will feature “hand-tailored squads” and a specialist system. As is the norm, it will be available in three versions: Standard, Gold, and Ultimate.
Battlefield 2042 currently has the following description:
“U.S.A. and Russia stand at the brink of war. Proxy wars have waged for decades, generating experienced but displaced combat veterans. These Specialists use their skills to shape the future — a future worth fighting for.”
“Battlefield 2042 introduces 7 vast maps for up to 128* players. From Seoul’s cities to Egypt’s deserts, every map offers a unique experience based on the natural environment.”
“Customize weapons, gadgets and vehicles in-battle to tip the scales in your favor. Summon a robotic dog built for battle, employ a grappling hook or don your very own wingsuit.”
“Choose your role on the battlefield and form hand-tailored squads through the new Specialist system. Based on Battlefield’s four Classes, Specialists have one unique Specialty and Trait – but the rest of the loadout is fully customizable.”
It also seems that Battlefield 2042 will launch during Holiday 2021.
