Battlefield 2042’s third season begins on November 22 and can convey with it the same old new stuff: a brand new specialist, new weapons, and a brand new map. I used to be mildly stunned to study that the map, referred to as Spearhead, would be the first official Battlefield map set in Sweden, where lead Battlefield developer DICE is predicated.

Wanting again, I assume not one of the previous Battlefield conflicts had an excellent motive to enterprise into Sweden. The nation was ostensibly impartial throughout WW1 and WW2, and Battlefield’s fictional fashionable conflicts have centered on the US, China, and Russia. There is no Sweden vs Canada subplot or something.

Sweden’s entry to the world of close to future Battlefield battle contains 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 may even embrace a few the launch map reworks DICE has been releasing in response to participant criticism. Someday mid-season, Manifest and Breakaway will probably be changed with redesigned variations which, amongst different issues, improve the quantity of canopy obtainable for infantry. The Breakaway rework appears to be like fairly dramatic, bringing the oil rig nearer to shore and reshaping the icey cliffs. The Specialist system, which largely changed conventional Battlefield classes, may 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 Game Cross Final, and will probably be free-to-play for every week after the beginning of the third season. On Steam, you possibly can play free from December 1-5. 

There’s extra stuff coming in Season 3, together with an attention-grabbing new tank that may change to “Siege Mode” to decelerate and improve its turret’s price of fireplace. Head to the Battlefield 2042 official site for the complete listing of upcoming additions.
