Electronic Arts unveiled the next chapter in its smash-hit online multiplayer FPS, "Battlefield 2042," according to an Origin leak that surfaced on Reddit. The year 2042 may sound arbitrary, but is 100 years prior to 2142, DICE's sci-fi futuristic shooter from the franchise. The premise of Battlefield 2042, set some 2 decades from now, depicts a near-future World War 3, with infantry and mechanized formations using a little more technology, though not quite into the realm of sci-fi. It makes a conservative prediction as to what warfare will look like in 2042, based on how little it's changed in the past 20 years. Like every other Battlefield before it, we expect large multiplayer PvP maps covering the "Conquest" mode Battlefield is known for; along with others such as Rush, TDM, and possibly even Firestorm. The leaker reveals an October 15, 2021 release date for Battlefield 2042.
