Battlefield 6’s multiplayer maps will feature a day/night cycle and dynamic weather will play a greater role than in previous series entries, a reputable leaker has claimed.
According to influencer Tom Henderson, who has published several Battlefield 6 reports over the past months – some corroborated by journalists – DICE’s upcoming shooter will be set 10-15 years in the future and simply be called Battlefield.
“The beginning of the trailer starts off with a nice sunny blue sky and ends in a dark and rainy mess”, he said, with the battlefield transformed by a “storm / tornado”.
Players will be able to control Osprey military aircraft in the game, with seven or eight of them reportedly on display in the reveal trailer.
The trailer is said to be reflective of a wider multiplayer focus on maps with day/night cycles and dynamic weather, which is described as “a big part of the game”, which the reveal footage shows in “a spectacular way”.
Levolution was one of the headline features of Battlefield 4, with DICE describing it as “the next step in player choice, and how you affect the world, and the world affects you back”.
It included features like a skyscraper collapsing in a Battlefield 4 multiplayer map, and Henderson said Battlefield 6’s Levolution-like features will be “a part of the core game”.
He also said to expect player movement to be relatively fluid compared to previous series entries, a skill-based matchmaking system that takes into account the skill level of entire teams similar Battlefield 1, and a time to kill in line with Battlefield 5.
Helmets and armour will reportedly play a big role in the customisation side of the new game, with cosmetics like ballistic helmets and juggernaut suits.
