In a lengthy blog outlining what to expect from Battlefield 2042, Electronic Arts and DICE have confirmed that Season 1 will kick off in 2022 with a new Specialist, Battle Pass and Portal content, and “maybe even some new sights to see as the story of Battlefield 2042 continues to unfold.” More details will be revealed next year.
In its first year, Battlefield 2042 will get four Seasons, with four Battle Passes, four new Specialists, and new locations alongside other “fresh” content. DICE will also update the Battlefield Portal that’ll offer a create-your-own-experience mode.
“Launch is only the beginning,” EA wrote. “We’re taking a new approach to live service with not only a commitment to new content, but a goal of enhancing the Battlefield experience through seasons that will continue to evolve the world of Battlefield 2042.”
As for what you can expect before Season 1, the “preseason” will offer weekly missions and rewards, limited time modes, featured creator spotlights, Battlefield Portal content, and much more.
As a reminder, Battlefield 2042 offers full cross-play and cross-progression. This means that you can carry your progress over to any platform of your choice as long as you’re using the same EA account.
Battlefield 2042 can be pre-loaded now on all platforms ahead of its November 19 worldwide launch. EA Play Pro membership holders and those who preordered the Gold and Ultimate Editions will be offered early access starting November 12th. EA Play subscribers will get 10-hour early access.
“The team has been putting their hearts and souls into creating this completely new Battlefield experience for you, and we can’t wait to get it in your hands,” wrote Creative Director, Lars Gustavsson.
