Battlefield 2042 will have one more mode that will round up the offering before its launch next month. EA has revealed the first look at Hazard Zone, an all-new, high-stakes, squad-based game-type for the franchise that combines edge-of-your-seat gameplay with the best of the Battlefield sandbox that players have experienced for nearly two decades.
Players will want to create squads that are the best at achieving their objective of retrieving Data Drives scattered throughout the battlefield, all while navigating through bullets from opposing squads and deadly environmental hazards.
A Hazard Zone match consists of five main phases – Strategize & Equip, where players confirm their insertion point, choose their Specialist and select their loadout and Tactical Upgrades; Insert, deploying to the predetermined insertion points; Retrieve, where squads will deploy their Intel Scanner and face off against enemy squads, Occupying Forces and the world itself; First Extraction, the first of two options for ensuring survival; Last Extraction, where the remaining squads must fight over who will escape and who will die trying.
Hazard Zone will be playable on all 7 Battlefield 2042 All-Out Warfare maps where 32-player matches will go down for the PS5, Xbox Series, and PC while 24-player matches will take place on the PS4 and Xbox One.
Battlefield 2042 will release on November 19 after a slight delay for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC.
