Battlefield 2042 Receives New Hazard Zone Mode Trailer (VIDEO)
Throughout recent history, many games have approached some parts of their gameplay with the introduction of a battle royale component. Arguably the most standard is the PUBG-style approach, featuring a circle that closes around different areas of the map and tasks players with being the last ones standing. However, this isn’t the only way to make a battle royale game mode. Battlefield 2042 appears to be taking an approach similar to that of games like Hunt: Showdown or Escape From Tarkov instead with a mode called Hazard Zone.
A new teaser trailer has dropped giving fans a small taste of the upcoming battle royale-like game mode for Battlefield 2042, with an additional deep dive on how matches will play out being detailed on the game’s official news page. Similar to Escape From Tarkov and Hunt: Showdown, players will be entering into each match to scrounge around for resources and securing data drives before escaping the area. Though the mode features a massive storm that closes in around the various 4 man squads, 2 extraction zones will open up as each match goes on, meaning a maximum of 2 teams could successfully win each game.
Players will be able to choose their operators and loadouts before each match, allowing them to create a synergy between each team. Dark Market Credits can be earned throughout each match and allow fans to purchase their favorite weapons for each mission as well as various upgrades like the ability to carry extra throwables, see the landing positions of crashing data capsules, and more. While DICE previously said battle royale wouldn’t be part of Battlefield 2042, Hazard Zone looks to scratch a similar itch, while offering its own spin on the premise.
Battlefield 2042 is set to launch on November 19th of this year for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, and PlayStation 5.
