Battlefield is back this year, and Battlefield 2042 promises a whole tonne of frantic futuristic combat.
A reveal trailer, featuring in-game footage, has arrived, featuring everything from tanks to hovercraft to rockets to wingsuits to helicopters to quadbikes to fighter jets and even little future tuk-tuk type dealies. There’s even some combat on foot! And all to the strains of a remixed Mötley Crüe.
Here’s the official word: “Battlefield 2042 is a first-person shooter that marks the return to the iconic all-out warfare of the franchise. Adapt and overcome in a near-future world transformed by disorder. Squad up and bring a cutting-edge arsenal into dynamically-changing battlegrounds supporting 128 players*, unprecedented scale, and epic destruction.”
That asterisk signifies that PS4 and Xbox have a ceiling of 64 players.
A gameplay trailer is set to hit on June 13, while the game proper – available on all the usual formats – is set to drop on October 22. Pre-order now at JB Hi-Fi.
