The announcement regarding Battlefield 2042 release date is one that everyone is currently talking about right now within the gaming world. It has been confirmed by Electronic Arts & DICE that Battlefield 2042 will be released on October 22nd later this year for various game consoles. Battlefield 2042 will be ported to games systems such as: PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PS4 along with Microsoft Windows. Battlefield 2042 is a game that fans of the series have been waiting for since Battlefield V which was released back in 2018. As many people know Battlefield V utilized the Frostbite game engine and its currently unclear whether or not Battlefield 2042 will have the same feature. Also, despite selling at least 7.3 million copies following its initial release in Q3 2018 Battlefield was considered to be somewhat controversial with casual gamers. There were complaints about Battlefield V as related to misogyny and history inaccuracy as it related to the World War II era of America of the early 1940’s. The cool thing about Battlefield 2042 is the fact that will be moving away from American history in favor of a more futuristic theme. Apparently, Battlefield 2042 will have no single-player campaign along with the absence of a multiplayer battle royale mode.
However, it has been confirmed that a online multiplayer game mode entitled All Out Warfare will be present in Battlefield 2042. It was mentioned that the All Out Warfare mode can feature up to 128 players on the PS5 & Xbox Series X; while the PS4 & Xbox One versions are limited to 64 players. At launch players will have access to seven different maps with the option of choosing from ten Specialists to choose from. Obviously, new DLC content will become available later down the line following the initial release of Battlefield 2042 on October 22nd. It seems that EA & DICE is trying something different with Battlefield 2042 by moving away from the Battle Royale feature; which is very popular with games like Call Of Duty: Warzone. As everyone knows Treyarch & Activision was successful in terms pulling off Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 without a single-player campaign mode in 2018. The question is whether or not Electronic Arts & DICE can pull off the same thing with Battlefield 2042 in 2021-2022.
