Battlefield 2042: Release Date, Trailer, Leaks, Setting, PS4 And Everything You Need To Know

Battlefield 2042

Battlefield 2042 is due to launch this year and is next in line in EA’s successful wartime franchise.

Typically an all-out military warzone experience with up to 64 players, it is an exciting time for the American gaming organisation to team up with DICE once more to produce arguably one of the best first-person shooters that money can buy.

The first Battlefield, titled “1942,” was released back in September 2002 for Microsoft PC and OS X, and has gone on to become a phenomenal success with the following 10 main releases, with a significant number of spin-off games during that timeframe.

Information is still limited regarding Battlefield 6 and we will update this article once more details are revealed by EA and DICE.

Battlefield 2042 will be set 21 years in the future and will feature an array of futuristic weapons and gadgets scampering around the battlegrounds.


Maps

The maps in Battlefield V were seismic to begin with, imagining that they could get any larger than they already are is difficult to comprehend. But there has been a rumour circulating online that this could, in fact, be the case.

Various sources on Twitter have indicated that there could be servers designed to have as many as 128 players in one game, meaning 64v64 combat. Nothing has been officially confirmed on this subject, but this is something to get incredibly about for all those Battlefield fans.
