Battlefield 2042 Hazard Mode Details & Trailer Drops, is a ‘Squad-Focused Survival Experience’

EA and Ripple Effect Studios have released the official debut trailer for the Battlefield 2042 Danger Zone.

Hazard Zone is billed as a “tense squad-focused survival experience” where players locate and obtain data drives before extracting them, all before a storm ravages the playing field. The mission can be divided into 1) strategy and joke 2) Insert on the map 3) Get information 4) Unpack Intel and 5) Claim your rewards.

Battlefield 2042 Hazard Zone starts with a Mission Area Briefing, where you gather all the information you need for your mission. This includes regions of the map with a high probability of enemy encounters, data drives and uplinks, the latter being powerful items that can turn the tide of battle.

Players then choose their specialists and equipment before going into battle with your squad. Your mission is simple: save the capsules and data drives, while fighting off rival squads that try to do the same. There are also Occupying Forces that guard the capsules and do not go down without a fight.

Finally, there are two extraction windows per match, which appear in random locations. However, these will only be available for a short period of time. It’s up to you to decide whether to unpack at the first possible opportunity or wait until the second window.

Locate the LZ and get there as fast (but as safely) as you can. Of course, you won’t be the only ones showing up, so you’ll have to defend the area from rival squads and Occupying Forces long enough to get everyone on the plane. If one of your squads doesn’t make it, they’ll get another shot during the final extraction, but remember, if you all fall behind, you’ll lose everything you’ve collected!

Battlefield 2042 is scheduled to release on PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One on November 19, 2021.
