E3 is right around the corner, and one of the biggest games at the show will be the recently announced Battlefield 2042. While publisher Electronic Arts is not officially attending E3 2021, the new military shooter will appear at the event through the Xbox briefing. Here’s everything we know so far and what we hope to see from Battlefield 2042 at E3 2021.
What We Know So Far
Battlefield 2042 is the next big Battlefield game from DICE. The game is set in the year 2042, which isn’t random–it’s 100 years after DICE’s Battlefield 1942 and 100 years before DICE’s futuristic Battlefield 2142. The world is in a difficult place in Battlefield 2042, with the Americans and Russians on the brink of war. While Battlefield 2042 does not have a campaign mode, the game will deliver storytelling through its various seasons of content.
The game promises new weapons and gadgets–and a robot dog–and the biggest Battlefield maps in franchise history that support up to 128 players in a single match. This is just the tip of the iceberg for what we know about the game. Be sure to read up on GameSpot’s extended coverage in the links below to catch up with everything we know.
