The release of Battlefield 2042 is just over a month away. The recent open beta, which was reasonably successful but unfortunately plagued by a number of bugs, offered players a taste of the classic Conquest mode. In addition to Conquest and the returning Breakthrough, the game will also feature two new modes: Portal, which lets you create your own scenarios, and the mysterious Hazard Zone. On the day after tomorrow (October 14) at 08:00 AM PT we'll find out what the last one is supposed to be, thanks to the trailer dedicated to this game mode.
"Hazard Zone is a tense experience that combines edge-of-your-seat gameplay with the best of the Battlefield sandbox," we read on description of Hazard Zone mode from the official Battlefield 2042 website.
According to unofficial reports, Hazard Zone will be heavily inspired by Escape from Tarkov and Hunt: Showdown. Similarly to the aforementioned titles, the players will supposedly be placed on a vast map and their task will be to get to the extraction point. Death is to mean the irrevocable loss of unlocked weapons.
So it looks like this mode will fit nicely into the storyline of Battlefield 2042, which depicts a global climate catastrophe. The game will be released on November 19 on PC, Xbox Series X/S, PS5, Xbox One and PS4.
