Electronic Arts is releasing a short movie that will tell the story of the locations featured in the upcoming Battlefield 2042.
Battlefield 2042 will feature no single player campaign and will be a multiplayer game only. This news has disappointed many fans because single player campaigns of the Battlefield series have mostly been fun.
So presumably with Battlefield 2042 featuring no single player campaign, surely that means that it will feature no story, right? Well apparently, that does not seem to be the case.
This week the official Battlefield Twitter account tweeted a short cinematic clip. The clip in question featured a brief glimpse of a large battleship, as well as on-land combat. The clip also featured audio dialogue saying: “The world wants to forget we exist. We will force them to see.”
When and where can I watch the Battlefield 2042 short movie?
The short movie called “Exodus” will premiere on Thursday, August 12th at 5pm BST/ 8am PT / 11am ET. You can watch the short movie via the official Battlefield YouTube channel.
In a follow-up tweet, it revealed the short movie will tell a story of Battlefield 2042s locations through the eyes of a journalist.
“Witness the locations of Battlefield 2042 through the eyes of embedded journalist Kayvan Bechir starting tomorrow till August 12.”
