Fight amidst sand storms, gain a height advantage, and eliminate enemies using advanced weaponry
From the gameplay trailer, we can see players engaged in action on the new massive-scale maps of Battlefield 2042. Players can get into tanks, helicopters, and fighter jets to travel across the map while wreaking havoc on enemies. Height advantage can be gained by grappling on large cranes and climbing at the apex to eliminate enemies from above. We also see how wingsuits are used to glide through the air to reach new places. Battlefield 2042 includes futuristic weaponry of different classes like pistols, assault rifles, and sniper rifles.
The game introduces Syrette Pistol, a specialty of one of the specialists of Battlefield 2042. The game introduces players to the Specialist System where they can create their own custom-made squads. It is based on Battlefield’s four classes. Players can choose one of the 10 specialists in the squad. Each specialist has one unique specialty and trait and the rest of their loadout is fully customizable.
The gameplay trailer also shows massive sandstorms and tornadoes ripping through the maps. More information about the game will be revealed on July 22, 2021.
