Gameplay trailer released for three of the new launch maps for Battlefield 2042

From Press Release:

Today, EA and DICE are detailing three of the maps that will be available in Battlefield 2042 on November 19. These new environments have been painstakingly crafted for players to serve out the hallmarks of Battlefield multiplayer like verticality, close quarters and long-range combat, vehicular assault and dynamic destruction across the All-Out Warfare, Battlefield Portal and Hazard Zone modes.

More details on the three maps can be found below:

  • Renewal is an eclectic landscape set in an Egyptian desert with a solar array Power Station on one side and a lush Research Facility on the other. It features a wall between both regions with various entry points, including a choke point through the often contested Entry Checkpoint in Conquest in the middle of the map. Players should also come prepared for close quarters battles in these areas as well as both of the buildings located within Renewal.

  • Breakaway, set in Antarctica, includes an Offshore Platform off the Frozen Coast, as well as an Outlook Station perched high above the battlefield making it a focal point for air battles. In the fractured paths of the Glacier, players fight in and above the ice cliffs that are connected with zip lines and rope bridges, and where the quick use of a parachute could be the difference between life or death.

  • Discarded features a flooded village along India’s west coast, disassembled hull and a Colossus Ship to explore. This map features lots of cover and close quarters combat; the Colossus Ship let’s players fight inside its craft while airships attack from above and tanks pummel its hull. With unpredictable weather, players will have to stay on their toes as the threat of a tornado could strike the map at any moment.

Battlefield™ 2042 is available on November 19, 2021 with early access starting November 12, 2021. From Egypt’s giant wall to Singapore’s maze-like cargo containers, get your first look at gameplay on three of the seven maps coming at launch: Renewal, Breakaway and Discarded.

The maps in Battlefield 2042 allow for all-new gameplay experiences, with unprecedented scale and choices in gameplay. With the introduction of 128 players*, each map is specifically designed to provide a unique experience that directly impacts strategy for you and your squad. Battlefields have multiple distinct combat areas housed in a single playspace and this extra space means more variety and more meaningful vehicle gameplay. Battlefield 2042 is made up of three distinct multiplayer experiences – All-Out Warfare features the next generation of fan-favorite modes Conquest and Breakthrough; Battlefield™ Portal allows players to discover battles from the past, present and future as well as to creating and change the rules of war; while Battlefield™ Hazard Zone brings a tense, squad-focused survival experience. Adapt and overcome on dynamically-changing battlegrounds with the help of your squad and a cutting-edge arsenal.
