Battlefield 2042’s third season begins on November 22 and can deliver with it the standard new stuff: a brand new specialist, new weapons, and a brand new map. I used to be mildly stunned to study that the map, known as Spearhead, would be the first official Battlefield map set in Sweden, the place lead Battlefield developer DICE is predicated.
Trying again, I suppose not one of the previous Battlefield conflicts had an amazing purpose to enterprise into Sweden. The nation was ostensibly impartial throughout WW1 and WW2, and Battlefield’s fictional trendy conflicts have centered on the US, China, and Russia. There isn’t any Sweden vs Canada subplot or something.
Sweden’s entry to the world of close to future Battlefield battle encompasses a pair of high-tech factories which have been plonked down within the wilderness. It is featured closely within the trailer embedded above.
Battlefield 2042 Season 3: Escalation will even embody a few the launch map reworks DICE has been releasing in response to participant criticism. Someday mid-season, Manifest and Breakaway will likely be changed with redesigned variations which, amongst different issues, enhance the quantity of canopy accessible for infantry. The Breakaway rework seems to be fairly dramatic, bringing the oil rig nearer to shore and reshaping the icey cliffs. The Specialist system, which principally changed conventional Battlefield lessons, will even be revised mid-season to create a extra conventional class construction—extra particulars on that right here.
Additionally notable: Battlefield 2042 is coming to EA Play and Xbox Recreation Go Final, and will likely be free-to-play for every week after the beginning of the third season. On Steam, you may play free from December 1-5.
There’s extra stuff coming in Season 3, together with an attention-grabbing new tank that may swap to “Siege Mode” to decelerate and enhance its turret’s charge of fireside. Head to the Battlefield 2042 official web site for the complete checklist of upcoming additions.
