This new Battlefield brings 128-player matches to the series for the first time along with some of the biggest maps ever seen in Battlefield. The biggest map is rumoured to be the same size as the Fortnite island from Season 1.

In the trailer, we get a good look at how the new weather events will affect gameplay. A huge tornado and sandstorm seem to rip players and vehicles right from the ground.

There’s also a brief glimpse of the new ‘plus’ system, which allows soldiers to adjust their weapon attachments on the fly.
