In Battlefield 2042’s first year of live service, DICE is planning to launch four Seasons, each including a Battle Pass, Specialist, new locations and more.
It also intends to deliver updates to Battlefield Portal, the new mode which lets players design their own match experiences by mixing maps and elements from past series entries with Battlefield 2042.
Publisher EA recently delayed Battlefield 2042’s release date from October 22 to November 19. However, players who pre-order the Battlefield 2042 Gold and Ultimate editions will receive access to the full game one week ahead of its general release.
EA Play and Xbox Game Pass members will also receive access to a 10-hour Battlefield 2042 trial beginning on November 12.
DICE said today: “During launch we’ll also kick off the Preseason with Weekly Missions and Rewards, Limited Time Modes, featured Creator Spotlights and experiences in Battlefield Portal, and more!”
Various Battlefield 2042 details and gameplay videos have leaked in recent days after a player was reportedly able to gain access to the title ahead of its release.
