Battlefield 6 is called Battlefield 2042: Here's our full lowdown on what to expect

Battlefield 6 has finally been revealed, and its name is Battlefield 2042, nodding to both the title of DICE's first entry in its shooter sequel series, Battlefield 1942, as well as the last time it looked to the future of warfare with 2006's Battlefield 2142.

This next-generation of the all-out conflicts that players know and love from the Battlefield series promises to bring back the sandbox gameplay and destruction physics that have been somewhat forgotten about over recent instalments, alongside a fresh wave of new ideas and mechanics.

Below, you'll find everything you could ever possibly want to know about Battlefield 2042, including its release date, trailers, gameplay details, and more. Be sure to bookmark this page and check back in regularly, too, as we'll be updating it with more Battlefield 2042 news as soon as its announced.

The Battlefield 6 release date is October 22

Electronic Arts confirmed that Battlefield 2042 is scheduled to launch this year, October 22 - that's a Friday, in case you're wondering whether to book the day off or not. As expected from the publisher, there are a number of various editions of the game up for purchase, but anyone who pre-orders Battlefield 2042 will receive a few extra digital goodies, alongside access to the Open Beta later this year.

Those who pre-order the Gold and Ultimate Editions of Battlefield 2042 will be able to play from October 15, however, while EA Play members will also get a ten-hour free trial of the game from that date too.

Battlefield 2042 will launch on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC

After much rumours about whether Battlefield 2042 would be a next-gen exclusive or not, DICE has confirmed that the game will launch on PS4 and Xbox One alongside its targeted PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC platforms.

However, there's a catch. On the old-gen consoles, player counts will be halved from 128 to 64, and the Battlefield 2042 maps will be limited in scale and size to better accommodate that smaller number of combatants. DICE has promised that players on those systems will still be able to enjoy large-scale wars with plenty of Only in Battlefield moments, however, and anyone who purchases a copy of Battlefield 2042 on PS4 and Xbox One will be able to upgrade to the next-gen version at no extra cost.

Battlefield 2042 gameplay proves this is the most sand-box enabling Battlefield yet

The first Battlefield 2042 gameplay trailer is a tantalising glimpse at what to expect from the game later this year, showing off DICE's next-gen visuals, scale, and gunplay from a pre-alpha build.

We see how the new Battlefield 2042 Specialists offer unique ways to play, such as grappling up to the top of a crane, and check out the game's Plus system at the 1:32 mark, in which players are able to switch between weapon attachments on the fly.

The sizzle reel also reveals how Battlefield 2042 destruction is operating at a level never seen from the series before, especially when the game's dynamic weather events - from tornadoes to sandstorms - wreak havoc across the battlefield.

Battlefield 2042 has no campaign or battle royale mode

Battlefield 2042 is a multiplayer-only experience, with DICE avoiding the inclusion of a campaign entirely to instead focus on what it does best; creating the biggest and craziest online theatres of war known to the world of gaming. That may come as a disappointment to some, but the silver is that you can play Battlefield 2042 offline, with AI bots controlling both your teammates and the enemy force.

On that note, Battlefield 2042 is also launching without a battle royale mode, which DICE has categorically denied as being in development for the game. Again, however, there's a catch. The game will feature a a new mode called Hazard Zone, which it describes "high-stakes, squad-based game type" designed to be "a modern take on the multiplayer experience". I don't know about you, but that sure sounds like a Battlefield-inspired twist on battle royale if I've ever heard of one...

Battlefield 2042 has a battle pass, seasons, and year one roadmap

DICE has made a public commitment to supporting Battlefield 2042 well into its first year and beyond with new content, updates, and more for players, though a good portion of this content will only be accessible to those who purchase the game's year one battle pass, which is available to buy separately, or part of the Gold and Ultimate Editions of the game at launch.

This pass will give you access to four new Specialists to be released over the course of Battlefield 2042's first 12 months, alongside the battle pass for the first four seasons of the game's live service. Other additions, such as new maps or guns, will be free to all players, so don't worry - the battle pass isn't essential unless you're desperate not to miss out on everything Battlefield 2042 has to offer over the course of its post-launch support.

Here are all the most exciting new games coming out in 2021 and beyond on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC
