Battlefield 2042: Three new modes

As the name suggests ‘Battlefield 2042’ is set in the modern era with futuristic weapons of war, and massive maps. In the next Battlefield shooter game, the world is on the sill. Shortages of food, energy, and clean water have led to dozens of failed nations, leading to the greatest refugee crisis in human history.

As the synopsis reads, “Among these Non-Patriated, or No-Pats, are families, farmers, engineers – and even soldiers. Amidst this crisis, the United States and Russia draw the world into an all-out war. No-Pat Specialists join both sides, not fighting for a flag, but for the future of the Non-Patriated in this new world.”

The new game will allow players to experience the next-gen technology from wingsuits, robots to drones which wasn’t on deck in the previous Battlefield games. Dice notes that Battlefield 2042 will be the ultimate ‘multiplayer sandbox with intense combat and a ton of incredible, unexpected events.’ The game will jam in visibility-altering sandstorms, a space rocket launch, and chaotic tornadoes as well.

The three new modes

The next game multiplayer fps will offer three distinct game modes- All-Out Warfare, Hazard Zone, and a yet-to-be-announced mode. The first is the classic gameplay except it is now hiked up with larger maps. DICE has added two game types for All-Out Warfare-

Conquest: Two teams will fight for ‘advantage over a play space’ that aims for ‘varied pacing,’ Polygon explains.

Breakthrough: A guided-mode where one team will combat while the other will defend. Players will have to fight to earn points on the map.

As for the second mode, Hazard Zone is a squad-based game type that is distinctly different from All-Out Warfare and “completely new for Battlefield,” Battlefield 2024 design director Daniel Berlin said. The third mode will be revealed during EA Play Live on July 22.

Players will be able to boot into Specialists, a new type of playable character that is said to be inspired by the traditional four Battlefield classes. From customizable load-outs to access to their own weapons, equipments, vehicles, these Specialists will have their own unique capabilities. As of now, the game will launch with 10 specialists. The four specialists announced at Battlefield 2042 premiere include- Wikus “Casper” Van Daele (recon), Webster Mackay (assault), Maria Flack (support), and Pyotr “Boris” Guskovsky (engineer).
