The basic premise sees multiple squads of four battling out, but instead of aiming for kills, players must extract data from the map. All while this is happening, a storm will be closing in on the teams adding to the tension. Certainly sounds familiar, doesn't it?
It's also being dubbed as a "one-life experience", meaning once you're out, you're gone for good. Every kill counts and teamwork will be essential.
Discover Battlefield™ Hazard Zone – A tense, squad-focused survival experience combining edge-of-your-seat gameplay with the best of the Battlefield sandbox. Inserted as a four-member squad, you must locate and retrieve critical Data Drives scattered throughout the battlefield, while competing against opposing squads with the same objective and local militias. Succeed by gathering the Data Drives and choosing when to extract before a storm overtakes the area in this high-stakes, one-life experience. Every bullet, every skirmish, and every decision counts.
The open beta for Battlefield 2042 recently took place and gave players an insight into what the full game will be like. There were some divisive opinions, most likely enhanced by the various technical issues, but it seems the core of Battlefield was still there.
As for the full launch, it's been pushed back to November 19, where it will launch for Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
