About

Battlefield 2042 is a first-person shooter that marks the return to the iconic all-out warfare of the franchise. In a near-future world transformed by disorder, adapt, and overcome dynamically-changing battlegrounds with the help of your squad and a cutting-edge arsenal.

With support for 128 players, Battlefield 2042 brings unprecedented scale on vast battlegrounds across the globe. Players will take on several massive experiences, from updated multiplayer modes like Conquest and Breakthrough to the all-new Hazard Zone.

Key Features

  • Welcome to A World Transformed – U.S.A. and Russia stand at the brink of war. Proxy wars have waged for decades, generating experienced but displaced combat veterans. These Specialists use their skills to shape the future—a future worth fighting for.
  • Battle Through Epic, Changing BattlegroundsBattlefield 2042 introduces seven vast maps for up to 128 players. From Seoul’s cities to Egypt’s deserts, every map offers a unique experience based on the natural environment.
  • Employ A Cutting-edge Arsenal – Customize weapons, gadgets, and vehicles in-battle to tip the scales in your favor. Summon a robotic dog built for battle, employ a grappling hook, or don your very own wingsuit.
  • Choosing and Equipping Your Specialist – Choose your role on the battlefield and form hand-tailored squads through the new Specialist system. Based on Battlefield‘s four Classes, Specialists have one unique Specialty and Trait—but the rest of the loadout is fully customizable.
