Battlefield 2042 has revealed some Escalation gameplay ahead of the release of Season 3 in a suitably bombastic trailer, not wanting to be outdone by Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0’s complete dominance of the shooter space in recent days.
Even though, admittedly, much of it is just old content that got a little reworked, Escalation will introduce quite a bit of content into 2042. There is the brand-new map Spearhead, which is set in the untamed wilderness of Sweden and features idyllic rivers and rolling hills that are screamin’ to be bombed. Additionally, the older maps Breakaway and Manifest have been reworked and should now flow more naturally.
Rasheed Zain, a new operator, can use his Airburst Launcher to knock enemies out of cover and, after doing so, will recover health twice as quickly as usual. With the introduction of the Rorsch Mk-4 rifle and the NVK-S22 Smart Shotgun, in addition to the potent EMKV90-TOR tank, railgun technology has also reached the battlefield.
The game will also feature a brand-new Battle Pass with 100 tiers of both free and premium content that players can progress through. On November 22nd, Season 3 of Escalation will debut on PS4 and PS5. What do you think of the upcoming new Battlefield 2042 content? Will you be playing it again?
