Set in the not so distant future, Battlefield 2042 takes place a mere 20 years from now. However, despite this, Battlefield 2042 features a world plagued by ecological turmoil. As a result, players will get to brave dynamic weather conditions, environmental hazards and real-time events like tornadoes and sandstorms.

Battlefield 2042 gameplay features

At its core, Battlefield 2042 will be a massive, multiplayer experience. Featuring 128 player matches the franchises biggest maps yet, 2042 will probably feel like a real-life war scenario. Sadly, while this is great news for multiplayer fans, the game will lack any sort of single-player campaign.

Instead, the shooter will feature three modes of play; All-Out Warfare (a new take on conquest/breakthrough), Hazard Zone (a new squad based mode) and a third experience that will be announced at EA Play Live on the 22nd of July.

How much will battlefield 2042 cost?

As you’d perhaps expect, Battlefield 2042 will cost more on new-gen consoles. If you’re still using a PS4 or Xbox One as your daily driver, you’ll be able to pick the game up for £59.99. However, if you’re lucky enough to own a PS5 or Xbox Series console, the game will cost you £69.99. Of course, it’s worth mentioning that both versions of the game will run on new-gen consoles, thanks to backwards compatibility.

Alternatively, you could splash out on the game’s Ultimate Edition, which costs a whopping £119.99 on console.
