Battlefield 2042 continues to evolve, delighting fans who stayed strong and weathered the storm, and surprising those who are returning to a happy multiplayer-only platform. Today, DICE released a gameplay trailer for the fourth season of 2042 called Eleventh Hour.
A relatively gorgeous screen introduces the new operator, map, weapons and elements. It’s a trailer that oozes production value and world-class cinematography, and is oddly reminiscent of FPS trailers of yesteryear.
The trailer is below – watch it and you’ll see what we mean.
Eleventh hour approaches
I’ll be honest – I gave up on Battlefield 2042 a long time ago, even though I’ve been a die-hard fan of the series since 2008. The Eleventh Hour trailer looks great though, and it might encourage me to reinstall the game I paid for. full price for return in 2021.
Everyone is aware that Battlefield 2042’s launch was something of a mess, and it took a really long time for DICE to start getting back together. For a while, the community believed that EA and DICE would move on from the failed game, but instead the investment increased and the game was established, improved, updated and expanded.
Here is trailer – it will certainly whet your appetite:
Battlefield 2042 finally looks like a Battlefield game, albeit a near-future, distant representation of what gamers have come to know and love over the past decade. Eleventh Hour injects a whole host of fresh content into the ecosystem, including:
- An all-new Recon specialist named Camila ‘Blasco’ who boasts a very stealthy ability to traverse the map undetected. He can’t be locked on, doesn’t trigger movement-based gadgets, and creates moving dead zones wherever he steps thanks to his X6 Infiltration Device.
- New weapons such as Super 500 Shotgun (sidearm), AC9 SMG, RPT-31 LMG, SPH Launcher and RM68 Assault Rifle.
- A class system update that sorts all specialists into one of the four iconic Battlefield classes that have been used in the series for many years: Assault, Engineer, Support, and Recon.
Not only that, but Eleventh Hour introduces a brand new map called Flashpoint – a rocky, mountainous environment deep in the heart of South Africa. Outside of the new map, one key launch map has also been tweaked – Abandoned.
Are you reinstalling Battlefield 2042 to take advantage of Eleventh Hour or have you long since given up or have you been playing it since release with no signs of stopping anytime soon?
The Eleventh Hour will be released on the 28th. February on all applicable platforms.
