Battlefield 2042, DICE’s upcoming live service Battlefield game, will reportedly feature a slew of post-launch content through the season pass, including a variety of new maps, specialized classes, weapons and vehicles, as well as cosmetics. Sources have revealed (via insider Tom Henderson, who is writing the report on DualShockers) that the post-launch content will be the “most comprehensive” in the series’ history, releasing a total of four season passes in its first year.
Each Season Pass lasts approximately three months, with each season featuring a new Specialist class. Additionally, the Season Pass also adds one remastered map per season, in addition to the two maps from All Out War to the Battlefield Portal, which were officially announced last week.
The season passes will also reportedly feature themes that are claimed to be based on “major weather events” such as “tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and even asteroids,” while the remastered Portal content will be based on the remastered classic map that will return. with every season. Some of the confirmed additions are popular cards from Battlefield 1942, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and Battlefield 3. While cards from Battlefield 4 and Battlefield 1 are also likely and may be expected in the future, DICE has not yet confirmed it.
In addition, the Season Pass adds a total of 12 new weapons and four vehicles each season, reportedly split between the Portal and All Out War. This also follows the remastered map theme meaning if the season includes maps from battlefield 1, we will see World War I tanks and weapons added to the game.
As revealed in the Battlefield Portal announcement video, players will also be able to create sandbox games using various gadgets, weapons, and vehicles from previous titles. It’s important to note, however, that DICE has not confirmed whether the Portal will require cardmakers to purchase the Season Pass to access the era-specific content or not. However, if you’re willing to shell out the cash, DICE has already confirmed that a Year 1 pass will be coming to the game that will give you free access to all four season passes.
This information is all unconfirmed for now, so take it with a grain of salt until we get more official communication from EA and DICE about it. Battlefield 2042’s content plans after launch. Battlefield 2042 will be published on October 22.
