Battlefield 2042 is the next instalment of the bestselling FPS series and the first one developed for the ninth generation consoles - PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. The game focuses on multiplayer gameplay. It was developed by EA DICE, the studio responsible for the series, and published by Electronic Arts, which owns the rights to the brand.
As the title suggests, Battlefield 2042 takes us on a journey to the not too distant future. Standing on the brink of war, the United States and Russia have been participating for years in conflicts that are supposed to replace large-scale open warfare. The soldiers who take part in them are true specialists, and their actions shape the future of the entire world.
In Battlefield 2042 we observe the action from a first-person perspective (FPP). The game gives us seven vast and varied maps at our disposal. Fights take place in urban areas (Songdo, Doha), sandy desert (Egypt) and ice-bound Antarctica. Interestingly, this time the battlefields are constantly changing, both under the influence of military action and as a result of violent atmospheric phenomena, including sandstorms and tornadoes.
During the game we play as Specialists based on four classes characteristic for the series. Each type of soldier has a unique specialization and attribute. The rest - equipment taken to the battlefield - can be freely modified and adapted to individual preferences. And there is a lot to choose from - the authors give us an extensive arsenal, a wide range of combat gadgets, various vehicles and numerous accessories such as a grappling hook with a rope, a wingsuit or a special combat robot.
The pillar of Battlefield 2042 is the multiplayer mode, where up to 128 players can play simultaneously. It's divided into All-Out Warfare mode, combining the updated Conquest and Breakthrough options known from previous installments in the series, and a brand new gameplay variant - Hazard Zone.
Battlefield 2042 runs on the latest version of Frostbite technology, thanks to which the graphical setting of this production presents the highest quality. The same can be said about the sound layer, which maintains the high level known from earlier installments of the series.
