Electronic Arts has confirmed that the developers will be moving the drop date for Battlefield 2042 from next month to Friday the 19th of November.
The development team behind Battlefield 2042 want to bring the best product to the fans, who have shown inspiring support for the first-person shooter. The process, however, hasn’t been too smooth due to the ongoing circumstances around the global pandemic.
Battlefield 2042 was set to release on Friday, the 22nd of October, bringing a ton of new features and experiences to the fan base. There are seven maps confirmed to be playable at launch, with 10 specialists based on the original four classes of the game. Each map will throw players into completely different locations with varying atmospheres and terrain, which will make for a unique battle experience every time a soldier steps onto the field.
Battlefield 2042 will be set in the near future and will include hallmarks of the series such as large-scale battles and huge open maps. In addition, Battlefield 2042 is set during an environmental disaster so players will contend with natural disasters like tornadoes appearing on the map as well.
A new addition to Battlefield 2042 is a mode called Portal which will let players create custom games using assets from Battlefield 2042, Battlefield 1942, Battlefield Bad Company 2, and Battlefield 3.
The Battlefield 2042 team will be delivering more updates on the open beta later this month.
